Hey guys Im looking to put a 62, 64, or 66 turbo on my truck but I want as much power as possible with little lag. I also want the most reliable setup as I daily drive my truck and tend to beat on it. MY mods so far are and H&S tuner, Turbo back exhaust and an intake. I just got the head gasket done and replaced the head studs with 425s and I have upgraded my tranny with better clutches and torque converter. Just would like to know what turbo would fit my needs best and what mods I would need to do with which ever turbo to have it as reliable as possible. Also would like to know if it would be beneficial to run the ats copilot with these turbos.

66 or bigger. read Krazeeun and Blackmega3500's threads on turbos. Also RJP has had alot of trial and error on turbos.

I have a silver bullet 66 on mine and love it. It is only alittle laggy when you are driving slow maybe under 30mph. But normal driving it spools just like stock with alittle extra fuel

I have a 66/74 on mine and its perfect for a dd and towing. If you are wanting to add fuel, I would go bigger. There are tons of threads on here to find what you are looking for but to tatersalad, you were just asking about a turbo a couple of weeks ago, we all have questions. Maybe you should have done some research before you asked. That's what the forums for!

Yeah i hate when people do say use the search function I have looked Im asking what I would need along with my mods to run the 66 reliable. I know I will need the turbo and manifold but other than that what do I need as far as tranny engine work. WIll the ats copilot be sufficient enough to run with the 66 or do I need more tranny work?

You will need a 3rd Gen Manifold, some coolant caps, and 66mm turbo, tools, and plenty of time on your hands. Being able to remove the passender side inner fender well & tire make the job alot easier, too.

Is that more helpful?

I hear that. You can find your coolant line plugs at FTE for like 10 bucks. I just had a couple right sized bolts laying around. 3rd gen manny, longer oil drain tube, longer oil feed line, 3rd gen elbow off the back of the turbo. You can pm me if ya have more questions and also I'm thinkin bout selling my setup if your interested

At Scheid back in August I made 460 hp. That was Smarty on revo, no mp-8 and no arson 3 kit, and a slushy tranny. My tranny has definately suffered and has given out.Now I'm doing a fully built 47re. I don't know what you have done, but those are some good baseline numbers for you. If you have a built tranny expect alot more.

I just finished my SB66 install a week ago. The stock oil line fit perfect. No need for a longer one unless you want to route it somewhere else. The stock drain line will work also if you just stretch it out a bit. Stock injectors work fine for my towing needs. Unless you can work with the tuning, (EFI Live or something else) larger injectors will burn more fuel usually. Same loads, same terrain, same tuning my new combo runs around 300 degrees cooler egts. I turned it down so it is only boosting 26 psi now...but it pulls a lot more air at that pressure than the stock VGT. It still pulls a lot better than the stock VGT and is a lot more fun to drive when I am not towing. For my needs/wants I am not sure if I would go all that much larger in a single...might go to compounds for my next build.

Wish I had your luck. My oil drain tube was every bit of 1.5" short and the feed line was even worse
