Match Turbo with amount of Fuel

What size turbo would be a good match for a set of 235cc injectors? I know that I won't be able to tow without having sky high EGT's, but am in the process of building my truck into a full on pulling/drag/toy truck so that's not a huge problem.

70+mm at least. you might as well go for some twins. 235's are pretty big. the guys truck above is a 7.3.

Thanks guys. I was reading through an older issue of Diesel Power and saw an '05 with 250cc injectors, a 70mm turbo, and some giggle gas. I want to stay away from Nitrous right now so I will probably be looking for a 70mm or a little larger.

I think most of the sled pullers are using a 72mm, since your already looking at a 70, might want to consider that unit as well.

You will hate it unless you go with twins. Those sticks with a big single requires running nitrous, there is no way around it.

I do have another vehicle I use as my DD, and am looking more and more towards a set of compound turbos. I was talking to a local diesel shop (they installed my studs and fuel system) about building me a compound set-up for my truck. He just got done building himself a set for his cummins and it looks great. He told me that he had seen a 6.0 utilizing the factory turbo and a low pressure 74mm together, but never heard the truck run, just saw it at a show here in Ohio. Does anybody know if this is posible, and if so how hard would it be to get the tuning correct with the larger injectors and turbo set-up?
