Twin Turbo Question...

I am currently working on purchasing a 95 F350 Stroker, its got 120,000 miles and i am going to do a few things wit it... first of all is it possible to get a E99 spider and make the truck intercooled, and then get the compound twin kit from black widow diesel. from there i would run a 3 1/2" DP to 5" straight, i would also run some Industrial Injection R2 160cc injectors, an AFE stage II air intake, and new head studs... im just looking for some input, any suggestions as well....

Possible to get an e99 spider and run an intercooler? Absolutely, in fact, you could call it common. Finding the e99 spider is the issue. Most people run that with a 6.0 or 7.3 intercooler.

You won't be able to fit a 3.5" DP without making serious firewall modifications (more than bending the pinch weld for the 3") or putting on a body lift.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

Why are you looking to run compound turbos with stage II injectors? A D66 will provide II's with more than enough o2.

Well i have been reading alot on this subject, i havent seen it done but alot of ppl agree that it would be somewhat practical to have 2 turbos for the 7.3L, i guess that the issue is that theres not enough space under the hood... also, wit the twin set up from black widow diesel, they recomend upgrading injectors and headstuds along with air intake, and IC... The kit does come wit a 4" DP, so, there would need to be some serious firewall modifications... How much of a job would that turn into?

A 3inch dp can be done with a simple cut/bend of the firewall seam. Anything over that requires serious firewall modification and or a body lift. A 3 inch will do all you will need in my opinion.

Beast as ****. Its not loud like a cummins, but it has turbo whistle for days which is the main distinction between a cummins and a PSD in my opinion. To put it this way if my truck was stock I would do it exactly this way.

Thanks bud. I'd recommend it. From what people see of my method they like it the best. I will update on strength after road testing, for a couple months. Wouldn't want someone to do it if it doesn't turn out awesome later on down the road.
