how to Twin an hx35 / 50

I bought an hx50 to to run as a single charger only to find out that it wouldn't bolt up to the stock manifold. So i can either get parts to make it work as a singe charger or try and twin it with my stock turbo. Id rather run twins so if anyone knows of a list of parts ill need and can tell me where to get them id appreciate the help. My truck is a 2000 24v with DDP 250 injectors, smarty tuner, AirDog 150, S&B intake and I,m still running the stock hx35. So my EGTs are way to high.

the HX50 is a bit laggy IMHO as a single charger, it really depends on what you want to do with the truck and your budget. Ive got an HX50 that im going to use in a twin setup with my stock charger, which im in the first phase of planning.

'06 2500, Edge Juice/W Att. Custom built turbo intake w/Amsoil 4090, Muffler & CAT delete. Trans in work, twins and injectors to follow

How are your egt with your box off. Bet that thing spools quick. You will need to make some custom piping or check out some vendors here. Search jkidd he sells some budget piping for twins and could hook you up. He's got some good service and even better prices.

01 2500 6 speed 029 vp44, juice/att hpfp 150, devils own stgII. He351 along with a 4" exhaust. Arp's Waiting for 150's and a intake plate ( thanks jkidd!)

Hx50 is way too small as a primary if you're running 250hp sticks. Depending on which version you have, its probably only a 64mm inducer. Which will work, but not with with sticks that big. You will also want an external gate on the 35, and a big housing on that 50, like 25cm or so.

2000 2500 Reg. Cab 4x4. VP44 577hp
09 2500 6.7L QCLB 4x4, G56, all stock for now.
