MPD single turbo kit or Tow Power X compounds?

Hopefully some of you guys can help me out. I'm torn between getting compounds or a single turbo kit from MPD the thing about it is I'm not sure what labor cost would be on the single turbo the kit is only $4500 from Rudy's and the compounds are $5200. I don't know if the labor would be more for the single or roughly the same with the compounds I really like the deep throaty sound from the single turbo kit it sounds like a 7.3 if you ask me!! Hope to hear from some of you guys and get some good advice.
Thanks, Tyler

Do you want instant spool up and low smoke around town or do you want laggy and a little smokey around town?

I like the sound of the single turbo too. Especially when my old 6.0 drives by That sound is AMAZING!

Would I be able to install the compound setup myself or would you recommend rudy's doing the install. I have seen threads and instructions for cab on installs.

Tow Power X's aren't drop in turbos, so doing the install cab on would not be ideal. You could do Tow Power Plus turbos cab on pretty easily because they're a drop in replacement setup.

I thought the singles such as the MPD 366 and 472 kits spooled pretty good. I unplugged my VGT just to get a general idea and it still spooled good and was told by Eric that doing that doesnt really give you an idea since non vgt singles have different piping and etc to help with spool up

Single turbo?
