Building a twin turbo setup

So I want to build a twin turbo setup. I realize I don't need a twin setup for my Sig truck. And its a waste of time/money. I just want to try and build one myself just to say I have. I've seen the kits and read what I can find on the topic. Anyone have any diagrams how setups for 7.3s. Pics of setups? Desgins? Anything? I've seen the kits from black widow.

I thought I seen somewhere that a guy used a stocker to feed a GT47 and had decent results. I also thought he was running 250/100 sticks.

Stocker won't live in a compound setup. A company has done a 38r and gt45r or gt47r setup. Just to let you know there are reasons guys don't do compounds on a 7.3, you can lay down as much power with a big single as you can compounds and compounds are a lot harder on motor parts.

Why is it then the duracraps and Cummins run compounds? I don't even need a huge turbo. A 38 would suit my needs. But I just want to build a set up to say I did.

A gt38 wont hold up under the stress, a 38r will but with the small turbine size you'll have to gate the crap out of it. Why compare a straight 6 and a 32v motor to a 7.3? Have you looked into the other factors of having compounds such as head flow or having a motor that will handle the added stress from the added volume of air?

The dmax is common rail. I'd just save and work it. Or get a 6.4
