quick question

is it possible to make your own twin turbo kit for a farely cheaper price than buying an actual kit from somewhere? ..and how could you go about doing it?

and a few ends and odds

It would be if you had all the tools and supplies to do it and had a good idea of what you were doing!

Dusty of dusty's diesel just put the twin setup on his 6.0. He has a thread on here about it, although I think he bought the kit. Still would be worth talking to though!

yeah, i have it down to about 1000 dollars for a twin set-up minus the first turbo. but you would need know how, welding, and other skills. alot of plumbing
