Pissed off with the aftermarket

Kinda find it pretty ****ty how the aftermarket is half assing the 6.4 outside of electronics. What little has been done is $$$. Furthermore i def. cannot afford to pay 7-9k for turbo's.

My frustration last night had me whip open auto cad and start designing a dual fueler that is affordable. Bought a used good pump for 200 bucks and factory turbos for 500. Going to use the factory turbo's as a mock up guide for a S300/S400 set up. I'm thinking 64/65/12 to keep surge down and a S475 or S480. I'm looking at the K31 Turbo as well since its got its own wastegate that should offset cost. Plus they are super cheap.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Eh I'm not upset at all. Just wait a few more years and prices will come down and I'm sure the products for the 6.4 will be better then they are now. But yes 9k for swapping out our turbos is ridiculous.

Really you are biotching about prices to mod a truck that is maybe 3 years old. It only had a three year production run parts aren't going to be cheap. These aren't 7.3's you are dealing with.

I agree prices will go down. But face it our trucks are only 4yrs old the aftermarket game is just starting to grow bigger now. More companies are getting involved and with that prices will drop to make sales. I know everyone wants the stuff now and for it to not be an arm and a leg but the companies need to gain back their investment before the prices drop.

But on a side note keep doing your research I would love to see what you come up with the 6.4 game needs more people with your drive.

Awesome man. I am also going to be doing a custom set of compounds down the road. I plan on starting with either an S366 or an S466 and compounding it further down the road with an S480. Haven't decided what do for fuel quite yet. Still waiting for the Industrial pump to be proven. I would like to do dual fuelers, but EGT's get a lot hotter with dual fuelers than with a big single pump.

Time is what it takes. The more time, and demand a market gets, prices will go down.

Take a look at 6.0l EGR deletes.... used to be $500+, and now you can get em for $150 shipped.....

But dang 9g's for turbos is a good chunk of change... Makes me feel better about our HUEI injector prices haha

It's good to know that there is someone else out there designing something. Can't wait to hear what you find out. Are you going for a true compound setup? Or like the sequential like we have now

Maybe I ate a bowl of stupid this morning, but doesn't compound translate to sequential? And if the turbo's are the same size, they're referred to as twins? And this is the difference between a compound turbo and a twin turbo?

Keep in mind these questions are coming from a guy with a stock single.
