I guess that all depends of how much HP you want and how deep your pockets are...

the stock turbos will make over 500 hp. I was also looking at turbos and i like the tow power turbos from elite.

600 HP is achievable with the stock turbos and a few bolt on parts.

Shouldn't you be over 500hp with that set up?

Your pretty much there with that setup. Add a few air flow mods like a CAC pipe, intake elbow, and bigger downpipe. You will need to delete the EGR to run the intake elbow, but it's worth it. :thumb:

My guess is that you would dyno in the 560-590 range, depending on the dyno, with your current setup. That is assuming you dyno the H&S 300 tune.

What kind of fueling mods are needed with bigger turbo setups that push 650+hp. River city and elite both call for injector tips and probably an air dog.......but what about on the motor. High pressure fuel pump? Fuel rails?

With Elite Tow Power X's or High Powers, 650 can be achieved on stock fuel. All you need is a fuel bowl delete for the turbos to fit, which would require at least an Air Dog with Elite's fuel bowl delete. The truck Rudy just built did 680 with Tow Power X's on stock fuel on Rudy's in-house dyno.

Does anybody know what kind a fuel mods a nice single turbo set up would require? And does anybody see a drop in reliablity on these set ups? I travel 10 hr trips several times a year and dont want to break down in OK or TX.

The fuel bowl doesn't have to be deleted to run the tow power x's.
I was under the impression that setup did since the atmospheric charger is the 76mm used in High Power's....which requires the fuel bowl delete. Only difference in the 2 setups that I know of is the inducer on the VGT.

So whats the best single turbo and fuel mods set up to get 600-650 hp reliably. Id do headstuds and an airdog system and run my HD300 tune. Gotta factor in a new trans too.

The single kit that Wide Open Performance is coming out with or the single kit that Maryland Performance Diesel has. *** uses a custom built turbo by Bell Turbo and MPD uses Bullseye turbo's with Bullseye's "batmowheel" compressor wheel. I know Craig and Mike of MPD have singles on both of their CC/SB 6.4's. Craig's is a stainless S366 with the batmowheel. Mike's is a cast S372 I think.

Yes both the atmospheric chargers are the same, but the difference between the two is the size of the piping that runs from the discharge of the atmospheric to the high pressure turbo. Go back and take a look at the tow power x build pics and then take a look at Shone's clean up thread and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Shone's truck has Max Powers. I would assume that the piping for the Max Powers is larger than the piping needed for 76mm that is in the High Powers and Tow Power X's.

The piping for the max powers and high powers are the same size. Go back and look at mikes thread the motor on page 43 and you will see what I'm talking about. The piping on the tow power x's is totally different which doesn't require the fuel bowl to be deleted.
