About to be finished up

I've about got my truck back together after a be all end all endeavor. I decided to stud the truck then the while I'm here bug bit. Found a set of 190/75 ffd's on Craigslist, went through and ported the heads plus new valves and pushrods. Built a fuel system with an a1000 pump and an rr. Went back and really worked the intake manifold and it matches the intake ports very well. Had twisted do up the tranny, so all good there.

Now the dilemma, I can get by on my stage one, but have a lead on an 8374 .92 t4, I read about the 1.05 on the army and thought it did fairly well for what it was. My thought was the .92 ought to really be something. A friend of mine bought it for a wrx, but its too laggy for street use, checked it out myself and it is by far for that small a motor. Just wonder how this one should do? I know a box 364 or 366 will work fine, but I like trying out new items.

A 66 would be more than enough for your injectors and will limit your towing a ton any bigger turbo I would suspect would be severely under fueled and laggy

Even with the opened up airways, the .92 would still have trouble even with hard off idle fueling.

I'm not real sure what your plans are for the truck but for me I am looking at a 62 or a 63 but I also need to tow on occasion and plan to build compounds at some point and I prefer very little lag

It's just a big car for me anymore. Tow nothing bigger than a bass boat or riding mower.

I just thought the 8374 would be a great turbo for my application, a tad small on the fuel side, but hopefully be able to bring the fuel on hard down low and not bug bomb an intersection. Supposedly the thing flows 79 lbs/air at 45 psi boost, and the rotating assembly is very lightweight, plus the ceramic ball bearings, hence wondering if the .92 housing is till too big.

It has the best airflow paths possible short of billet heads, but that's not worth the money for street use. I might try it anyway, apparently it's new enough to be sold quickly if it doesn't work.

It will probably be a bit laggy I'm not familiar enough to say much about how that turbo will perform but I bet cutting edge diesel would know if you gave them a call

I have rode in one with 205's and a .83 t4 366, lit nearly instantly and not much smoke. If stomped it would smoke about 1 second then rip away. I just liked the idea of simplicity, plus the drivability is not any worse than the vgts, in my personal opinion, plus have the top end.

I just thought that my trucks airways being as open as it gets( fully ported intake, ported and polished heads, and headers) I could afford a little bigger housing. The t3 just didn't appeal to me, due to possible bp problems and having to gate at less than max effort.

You know what that size housing can do with big fuel. Our trucks are apples to oranges comparison, but your sticks should push that charger pretty good. I wouldn't try towing big with it, since I have your flatbed now anyways.

I think t4 is the way to go but I believe that housing will work just fine especially if you can get a real good price

The turbo is on the pedestal now, just fabbing the up pipes, water, and oil lines. If this doesn't work, I will sell it and get a box 364 fmw.

I hope it works as it looks pretty cool and spins like greased butter. Definitely a difference between the ceramic ball and journal bearings. Hope to be running this evening.
