Insight onTurbo Upgrade

Looking to upgrade the turbo and injectors on the old 6.0.

I thought about going with a BW S372 and 190 injectors along with some supporting mods. (Studs, upgraded tunes, etc.)

What's you guys thoughts on this? Also would a S372 T4 work/ mount on a 6.0?

Thanks


Cory

It's a daily driver. I do tow from time to time, any where from 2k to 8k. Just looking to get 500-600hp. Just for fun basically, something different than a Powermax or Aurora.

and in fact I would probably just do a s362 with a t3. That will put over 500 hp and you could probably still tow.

Thanks Matt. Thats good to know. I like what you did to Brandon's truck. Good stuff!

Do you have any other suggestions on what should be added to the 6.0?

A s364 with 190s and 100% nozzles would blow the doors off a truck with the same setup but with a powermax. The spool up time would be a little slower but it would flow SO much more air up top. I would think that with the right tuning you should be able to hit 550Hp.
