Turbo for 225s

So I'm beginning the plunge to mod the truck and need some opinions on matching a turbo(s) with 225's. I'm debating large VGT vs large single non VGT with some divided up pipes. I don't think I've got the cash to do compounds now, but if I go non VGT I'd like to have that turbo be ideal for a HP later. This is assuming the supporting mods are done of course. Also a little concerned about HPO as well with the 225s. Thanks guys

You can pick up a boxed 366 for around 650.00$ and cutting edge diesel makes a nice set of divided up pipes for another 600.00$. Would be a pretty cost effective set up vs a big vgt and net you around 600ish horse with your injectors. Can't beat the sound of a non vgt 6.0 either. This turbo could be used later if you wanted compounds.

a 66 with divided t4 housing and divided uppipes would be perfect for 225's (assuming you maintain hpo)

Would a 66 move enough air for 225s? or would 205s better match the 66?

205's and a 66 would be a fun, reliable street combo that will still work on stock oil and be significantly less expensive than some of the other options out there.

Thanks. Got any ideas of where to start looking for a turbo and a set of T4 up pipes?

225s are too much fuel for a 66 on full fuel and maintaining icp. But that setup is good for 650 if you can maintain injection pressure. I have fuel pulled in my setup (225/100, 66 with ced pipes) on the brink of dropping icp.

^^ Will do. Pizza how did your 205/150s do with a 66? I remember you had that set up. And how much fuel you have pulled on your 225s? I'm guessing your still on stock HPO. Thanks guys for the help.

205's will do fine with a 366, just stay 100% or less on the nozzle size. I think Greg stated 150's fogged pretty bad, if I'm wrong, sorry Greg.

If a second charger is what you want and it's gonna be soon, just get a 364 and a reduced fuel tune to get you by. Then lay a 480 or 483 downwind of it and have some real fun.
