Quite a few people run them. Go check out PowerStrokeArmy, you will have a ton of information to search through over there on 6.4 single turbo setups.

Thanks. And I'm assuming that upgrading your fuel system should be first or no?

You can run stock fuel with an S366, but anything above that I would start adding fuel.

Eric@PTP has a single turbo on his truck and likes it. He says it spools like stock with stock fuel. He says it's stronger too. Maybe he will chime in.

I'm getting an airdog soon and whenever the cab comes off for studs I'm thinking about a better hpfp or so? I really don't know what order to do this in. Any help?

What are some main things to do while cab is off? Also looking to improve any factory weak points.

Yeah I have that set up on mine, its spools awesome and power is pretty crazy compared to the factory turbos. I wouldn't go any bigger than a S366 though as Jeff mentioned, if you want to do say a S372-375 or even a S472-475 I would look into some injectors and a dual pump set up. Guys running the S366 though with an AirDog (165) and some other mods are doing north of 650 to the wheels. I would look into a muffler too though if you don't have one already, the exhaust is stupid loud without it. But it is kinda weird to hear so much turbo whistle from a 6.4 though LoL.









Sorry for the crappy iPhone pics and video, I have some better ones on my phone but for some reason they wont convert over right. So I took this one real quick to give you guys a idea of what it sounds like, it doesn't boost with no load (truck is in park) but it does like a mother on the street.

And depending on your mileage while you have the cab you may want to just do the oil cooler, t-stats, belts and water pump. That what I did even though it was all still good I had over 170k miles at the time and knew it would only be a matter of time before one of those crapped out and its easier to do it while its all right there in front of you and the cab is off. Preventative maintenance goes a long way in keeping your truck living a happy and long life.

So about how much would it cost me to get some slightly bigger injectors, dual pump set up, turbo kit, oil cooler, thermastat, belt, tensioner, and arp head studs?

Before I do that I'm getting a performance radiator and airdog. And ccv mod is happening this weekend unless weather persist.

Just watched your video and I'm very interested in the kit you have.
