has anyone done this yet? i understand that there isnt enough fuel yet, but wouldn't the twins for the lly work?
Well, on an LB7 with stock fuelling the twins make as much boost as a stock turbo, but with some lagi wouldnt want them without the fuel. if they dont have to re-engineer them, its that shorter until we get em.
Remember when Nathan started work on my truck?First off is a bigger turbo than the BD there is a compleat new down pipe, coated hot pipe two coated cold pipes, new airfilter, Maf housing and all the plumbing to move the coolent tank and other lines, and all the r&d to make it fit.
If you can figure out which turbo to buy, fab your all your own pipes, have them the coated, reroute all the plumbing, buy the new air filter, all the clamps and fittings, turbo support bracket, exhaust wrap, and figure out what your time is worth ( say if labour was half and at $30.00 per hour and you better figure it all out in less then 17hrs, if all the parts were free you better figure it out in less the 33 1/3 hrs,) and if it all adds up to less than $999.99, you saved your self a bundle.
Personaly, I feel it's worth it, but suit yourself.
Driveability is extremely good with Twins. A good rule of thumb with Twins are less lag (handy when not balls to the wall) and better street manners. EGT reduction is also very good.Can anyone elaborate on why twins might be chosen over a big single. I have twins in plan. Just need that extra assurance, like everytime to make a purchase this large. I want low 12's and lots of whistle. Am I making the right decision? Not to steal the thread or anything, sorry.
Call DTT 1-866-504-4002Not to steal the thread, but I plan on buying a duramax real soon, and would love to do something different from everyother truck around here and I'm am thinking twins might be the way to go. I will most likley be getting a LB7 and am trying to do as mush research as possible before I actually get the truck. Just curious as to how much a twin setup costs? I know they cost more than a replacment single turbo, but about how much more? Also, what type of programing will be needed to supply a twin setup? Thank you all for the help.
