Twin turbo setup on 97 7.3L

I upgraded my turbo but am wanting more. I'm trying to see what gains a twin turbo setup on my 97 7.3L will gain me for towing. I pull a 24' steel horse trailer, usually loaded down with 7 or 8 horses and would like a little more out of the truck. I have an after market intake, 6 stage ts chip, upgraded turbo, and heavy duty torque converter. I love the performance when I'm not pulling a trailer but when pulling 26 to 30,000 lbs. I cant help but want a little more power. Any suggestions?

Injectors, hpop, custom tunes, and a d66, if your dead set on twins everything has to be custom and I don't think anyone makes a kit for the obs 7.3L good luck

Won't gain you anything except a lighter wallet.

Sounds like you just want a little more power. If you already have a bigger turbo, you could throw some 160/100's or so in it with custom tunes. Assuming you already have gauges and an exhaust. With a good TC and VB in the trans, it should hold. You will probably need at least a 17* HPOP as well.


I wouldn't go with twins unless you want 600hp+. A good single setup will still spool fine and cost a lot less.


I hope you mean 26-30k combined. Even that is a lot of weight. If you do mean 26-30k of trailer... You need a bigger truck.

Don't forget, pulling it is one thing, STOPPING it is another.
