do you have any more mods or just whats in your sig. its not really worth it to upgrade your turbo unless you have more fuel. do you have studs? if not i would spend your money on that first. as for ats i havent used there products but they are quite pricey.

I agree with motoxracer42. Need to stud that 6.0, delete the EGR and get more fuel. Personally, I would stay away from ATS. Heard too many things about their service after the sale if you have problems. Now there is a letter out there that supposedly they wrote but deny. I would check out Elites VGT-SS or talk to Industrial Injection for turbo upgrades but that is just my opinion.

EGR delete will keep you from flash boiling the coolant and either blowing the EGR cooler and or head gaskets. Haven't looked into River City Diesel so I can't tell you anything. With bigger injectors, I would look at going with an airdog or fass pump to help keep enough fuel supplied.

My turbo is from Josh and I have zero complaints about it and it was worth every penny of it.

Yes, your going to need a bigger pump. I have 150 injectors and it took 2 months before the stocker died on me. I would also suggest ITP's Fuel Regulated Return to help with the "dead-heading" issue that goes on with these trucks. Now the RR kit comes with a fuel psi gauge that attaches to the regulator itself, but I would get an in-cab fuel gauge as it was because of that I was able to know that my fuel pump was going out before it actually totally died on me.

Not all the injectors get the same rate of fuel pressure with the stock system. A RR kit first off ramps up the fuel pressure(60 psi) and it delivers that to all the injectors.

Yup, it keeps the back injectors 5,6,7,8, from starving from fuel. The stock system bearly keeps up with stock injectors. I am in the process of becoming a vendor over here (just got responses from the email I sent) and hope to spend a little more time over here.
