turbo choices

im lookin to get around 550 to 600 hp outta my truck. will a d66 support that kinda power or will i need to go with an even larger turbo? honestly if not does anyone know about any twin systems that will put me around 800 or so? a buddy is gonna hook me up with that turbo for cheap but if it wont give me at least 500 (reliably) id rather stick to my original twin idea

800hp has never been done on fuel only with the 7.3L, couple of guys getting close, but not quite there yet. As for a single turbo that will support 550hp, the ZQSSB turbo with the Hypermax mount kit would be a great option for a daily driver, works great for towing too.

You turbo should be making max boost 2000-2500rpms TOPS. Are you chipped?

A 1.0 exhaust housing will bring boost closer to 1500rpms.

well right now my exhaust is my biggest problem. i think its chokin it cause its a horrible setup. im workin on findin some 4 or 5 inch strait pipe right now. all the bends r regular instead of mandrel bent and there is no real direction of the flow to the stacks. and yea its an edge evolution. nothin crazy. i like it alright but im workin on sellin it 2. and id upgrade the housing if i fell into the right one but if im gonna spend money id rather spend it upgrading to what i really want instead of wasting it on just for now mods. ive been lookin up turbos and i found a garrett gtx4294r with a t4 flange kit. anyone know anything about it?

Bigger turbos need supporting MODS. Can't just put a big turbo and expect the little injectors to spin it. Can't put big injectors on without upping the fuel stability and HPOP flow/pressure. MODS happen in stages. Turbine housing will set you back $170. Replace that intake and exhaust and your golden till the bug bites again. Intake you can do yourself. Search on this site for "DIY intake", cheap. Lots of exhaust makers out there to choose from. Find one that fits you budget. Also, wait to buy anything for two more weeks. 4th of July discounts baby!

Intake exhaust and a GOOD tuner will make a big difference. Those edges are crap. Ditch it. Also, a 1.0 exhaust housing is like $155 from Beans and makesa a good sdiff. Also, a swamps idm will give you a good 30-50whp. Those mods alone will make a stout truck. Like said above, you don't just strap a big turbo on and go. A lot has to happen before that.

Then, you need e-fuel, ic, big sticks, big oil etc to move that big turbo. Start from the bottom and work your way up.
