I'd go compounds man no matter what single vgt you get your gonna run hot. Matt at cutting edge has a nice compound kit available and is affordable

6.0/6.4 Ported intake manifolds, turbos, air intakes, fuel systems and much much more!!!!

The 3000 is a relatively small turbo, I think you could run the 5000 with those injectors!

225/150 are way too big for street even with compouds. You will also have trouble maintaining oil rail pressure. 6.0 powerstroke don't like a lot of fuel anyway. You would have to give more info on what you have now and what you plan on doing.

150s are more nozzle than you need with 225s. The Aurora 3000 is a tiny turbo, I wanna say 58mm but I can't remember exactly. No one runs their stuff on the 6.0 anymore. Like was mentioned, you won't maintain ICP on a full fuel tune with 225s, so you would need to get dual HPOPs. A set of 225/100s is the biggest I would ever go with a single vgt. IF you went nonvgt single, like an S472 or bigger then you could go bigger on injectors, but be ready for some serious lag. You are better off going smaller on the injector, unless you are prepared to drop serious coin on other parts too.

100% nozzles max, hope you haven't made a purchase yet.

Anywho, you could run a 362 or 364 over 485 or 489. Or o lie MPD done and do a stock over 475 or 480.

If you have a welder and don't mind drilling your oil pan, you can do the job yourself, I would call cutting edge diesel for up pipes though.

There's a whole list of other things you should think about getting to go with it.

I was about to start the same thread but about my 190/30's. I love my stage 2 Adrain but i gotta do something different. I did see 40psi out of it, but egts were ROLLING past 1600, flying by, and fuel psi dropped to 40 real quick.

The usual I wanna go fast mods,
maybe a lil more,
maybe a lil less
