D66 guys! Some questions

Hi everyone! I finally decided to register and be a member of this site instead of just reading along haha! So to start with my truck is a 95 with a zf 5 speed, 160cc injectors, valair 400hp single disk clutch. It will soon have a SD hpop and I am one component away from having an IC setup. I need to upgrade my turbo pretty badly. I am looking at the d66 and was wondering what kind of egt numbers you see over the stock turbo with 160cc injectors. I have everything I need to install an intercooler as well. I would like to do a gt38r conversion but the turbo is pretty pricy. I could get the manifold, up pipes, intake plenums, and pedistal and intake spider off a 2000 7.3 from a guy for 300 bucks. Which one would be a better setup and offer lower egts when towing? Also I thought when I got 160cc injectors that i would be satisfied, and I was for about a year, and still am, but stage 2s are sounding better every day darn power addictions! Thanks in advance guys

if you've already got 160s with a stock nozzle, id up grade to a set of 238/100s...

My egts with my set up(stage 2s, 80 percent over nozzle) are controllable.

I should have done 238 hybrids, but my stage 2s were a great deal. Good tuning will get you a very reliable set up.

And honestly, the 38r and d66 are very close in flow numbers. They both use the same compressor wheel. The d66 actually flows about 50 cfm more. Id stay with the d66 rather than going with the later model sd setup and then posting for the 38r. A lot of people say that they do not like the turbo whine after a while that the 38r produces. They love it at first but it becomes annoying after a while

What do you mean with controllable? Also I don't have the money for new injectors and a turbo unfortunately, so for now I'm stuck with the 160cc setup. also what defines a hybrid injector?

Controllable meaning that you can tow what you want with them no problem, and you can run the hot tunes on the street without getting too hot.

I have php hydra chip. I really like their tuning. I am running tuning from Tony Wildman also. His tunes are great too, just more aggressive with the down low power than what Bill normally does

i have 160/100s and a D66 with the ww2 and a 1.0 housing, pus all the other mods. i love it. i can tow anything i want, EGTs are in check. this weekend i towed 13K and 9K and EGTs didn't break 725 in normal driving, trying i couldn't break 1100.

I had the stock 1.15 housing on the D66 to start, i hated it, and i'm not the only one. it was laggy, smokey and no boost. with the smaller housing more boost sooner, less smoke, and lower EGTs

Great info. I honestly havent looked into the options when purchasing a D66 but where do you get the 1.0 housing? Our trucks come stock with the 1.15 correct?
