I will contact this gentleman when I'm ready to upgrade my turbo. He's redefining the world of turbo whistle. In my opinion, this guy is a true American hero.

What are yall's thoughts on a compound turbo setup vs. a single VGT setup in terms of cost, complexity, durability, and low-end acceleration? I've seen both of these setups haul off the line. In other words, what would be the best setup for someone who's mainly interested in quick acceleration response and the pull from 0-60mph?

compounds for sure. IMO but the cost is higher complexity is higher durability should be the same but theres a lot of extra piping expanding and contacting. low end acceleration would depend on which turbos you choose for the compounds or the single VGT. Too much low end boost will turn the rods into spoons to scoop out your block LOL. my friend has a crappy d-max, i say crappy because its not a ford . but his compounds start spooling almost right above idle ( and whistling lol) and can push all the way too, i think his last dyno was between 950-1000hp. For ease of install, less complex piping, less cost and maybe, don't quote me, probably more durable. the single VGT is I think the winner there.

that being said I'm a compound guy myself and thats what ill be putting on my 2015

Unless you plan on doing a built engine or at least connecting rods, I'd stay away from compounds

Yeah, I've heard of a single VGT's tendency to bend the rods from low-end torque. I would need to look into some custom tuning to avoid this. I don't plan on upgrading rods right away and I'm not in need for more horsepower than I already have, so maybe after upgrading rods I would consider tuning for more power. I think you're right. The single VGT is still the best upgrade for me. Thanks!
