upgrading turbine housing. whitch one?????

i'm looking at upgrading the exhaust side of my turbo for a little better turbo response.

my options are a 1.00 ar housing or a .84 ar housing

i do alot of towing usually from 5000 lb to 11000 lb

i do more racing than towing tho. i'm planning on adding some stage one injectors within the next few months.

whitch housing should i buy? their both the same price so i'm not sure

would a .15 diffrence acctually make a noticeable difference? i'm allready making 24 psi with my completly stock turbo.

any tips or information would be greatly appericated.

Definetly don't get a .84 if you are planning on doing stage ones.

If you're getting stage 1's, keep the stock housing

I run a .84 on mine with stock injectors, and it makes a huge difference on bottom end.

OBS trucks should have come from the factory with a .84 housing, and the Superduties should have came with the 1.15 IMO

How big are you going to go?
Stage ones and 1.0 is a great combo I herd, especially for towing and quick boost reponse. Im getting stage ones once I gather the $$$.

I had an interesting experience with Stage ones and 1.0 housing. One of the things I was hoping for was less low end smoke. Especially on the 60 tow program. Funny how the dynamics of things work. I actually have more low end smoke, now, my theory is it sees enough boost to start up the fueling table sooner, but not enough to clean up the smoke? The performance is definitly there, but I don't know what the diff would be with the stock 1.15.
What I DO know is everyone is right use 1.15 stock hsng with stg 1 injectors. I have 800 on the pyro cruising empty in 5th and you have to really watch it even empty. If you forget to downshift and cruise up a little hill the pyro will hit 1300 even in stock setting. Towing 6,000lb requires downshifting and really watching it. Natually an IC would help, but there is a flaw in this set up because it is too hot most of the time. Kinda fun getting sideways in 3rd gear but that is another post!

96 F250 CCSB 5spd 3.54 DP Tuner 60 tow, 80 econo. Afe intake, Tymar 5" exh straightpipe, AC (stage 1) injectors, D60 front, 305/70/16. Wifes daily driver.

Stay with the stock housing for stage ones... It spools plenty fast.

i would go for 1.0 housing. I have stock turbo with stock 1.15 housing on my 1994.5 and even with stage 3 injectors my turbo is a bit laggy down low. But then again its all in the tuning. Good tunes, stage 1s, IC and a 1.0 Housing is a great combo to start off at.
