Twin Turbo 6.0L

Has anyone squentially turbo'd a 6.0L? I assume someone here has but I'm lookin for a little more information on set up. We're thinkin running a small feeding a larger turbo is the route to go but I've heard the other way is better. Is it better to run two of the same turbo? Will the enginge require heavy modification to handle the extra boost, besides EGR delete and ARP studs?

Parallel turbos on a 6.0 wouldn't work very well, but a number of folks are running sequential turbos.

Larger turbo has to feed the smaller one

Eric at IDP sells a twin turbo kit with a number of different turbo options.

Yeah, that's what we're hearing. Basically what I really need to know is for a sequential set up should we be running a true TT set up, large feeding a small, small feeding a large or just go to a massive single? The motor is gonna end up in a school bus that's gonna be 4-linked and used as a mobile base camp for wheelin, but it needs to be streetable as well

Is there an upgraded injector option for the 6.0L? We're a diesel shop and one of our techs is a Ford trained diesel guy. (Hence the plans for it, we know it like the back of our hands) As far as we're aware there isn't an udgraded injector set up. But I have a feeling I'm about to be educated otherwise

I wouldn't even consider a massive single. It would need nitrous just to spool it up.

There are all kinds of upgraded injector options for the 6.0 liter powerstroke.

However there is absolutely no benefit to a twin turbo setup using stock injectors.

You would have to step up to a 205cc injector before you would see any real benefit to a twin setup.

How big is the bus
