I was reading a thread, somewhere about putting a second turbo on, possibly under the truck, I know it would take alot of plumbing.
My question is two part what would be a good turbo to try this, and could You use the factory turbo on my 04SD?

The factory VGT has been tried as the secondary charger in a compound set up. It didn't work. Pretty much all the compounds that are around in 6.0's are custom setups. Both chargers are mounted in the engine bay. All the plumbing is custom. The size of the chargers depends on what your power goals are and what you plan on using the truck for.

Also compounds shouldn't be considered unless you already have a full list of supporting mods that will run you in the neighborhood of $10-15k before you even think about spending another $7-10k on the compounds. I am of course ballparking the prices.

:agree: You are looking at Fire ringed heads, 250+ cc injectors, a bulletproof tranny before you need to be looking at doing a compound setup.
