twins are fine , but you can get just as much power for the money with a good aftermarket turbo, and some other mods without all the hassle of mounting twins

well first you would need to decide just how much power you wont to achieve , and what the truck is used or , there is alot that comes into play when deciding on what will work best for what you want to do

You may want to try out different products (tuning wise) before thinking about "needing more power"...

Only thing I'd add to Scuffy's post is how deep are your pockets?

I've got a buddy that runs the ATS Aurora 4000 and absolutely loves it. He tows all the time says it runs cooler EGT's than the stock did. Also says it spools faster and gets a little bit better fuel mileage.

i agree with the aurora , ats always makes good stuff i think, i will also agree with marty , depending on how much power he is wanting , a really good tune could very possibly be all he needs , with the 6.o and custom tuning , its amazing the power that can be achieved with stock turbo and injectors

i have about $25,000 to put into the truck, so money wont be much of an issue, the reason im looking into a new turbo is the factory one went bad and quit spooling its like it locked up, so the excursion has been parked since last weekend. i use the truck for ocasional towing small trailors, a 27ft boat and it does see the mud boggs almost every weekend. I also hook it to a sled when the fair comes through. Im looking for around 400+ ponies
