BBi 0.5s
Borg Warner 363sxe
Aftermarket manifold(either third gen or second gen style depending on depth of pockets)
Built trans
MM3 with tunes by Gordon (dodge74 on here) or someone else on here
Single piece driveshaft
Added fuel filtration
Steering box brace
Bypass heat exchanger
Install dynamic transmission thermostat bypass in front cooler

That's a solid build right there. Should be good for many many carefree miles.

With only 0.5 bbi I think he should go 362.

In my opinion the 363sxe is a useless turbo. It flows less than 5 lb/min (some places site it as only 0.5 more, hard to read the edge of the map) over the 362, at a lower pr and efficiency.

Which means if you go with the 363 over the 362 then max hp potential gain is only 4-40 using the 8hp/lb rule of thumb. But due to the decrease in efficiency you gain about 44° outlet temperature at 40psig. And with a larger wheel it will inherently spool slower.

I agree with a 362 with bbi .5s. Just because I think u need more injector. but as for putting down the 363, I disagree. All of that stuff sounds good on paper but my experience the 363 and 362 spool damn near identical. And the 363 has greater potential (future compounds or just peek hp) regardless of a possible slight efficiency loss.

It's has 120xxx on it now and I had a injector go. I replaced it but now I'm going to do them all. Which brings me to nozzles. I'm looking for a fun truck that can still do everything (tow, road trips, just cruise) and have some usable power.

Quick question how did you determine “I had an injector go”. I’m concerned with 133,000 mi on 2006 as well.. I would appreciate your input.. thanks

Start small. A boost fooler will do most of what you want and not put you at any increased risk.
Next put in a shift kit to fix the shifting under load.
After that more air will do more than injectors-I used towing twins.
Now that you have more air add 90 injectors and put in a solid flex plate and consider built tranny.
Now you can consider race twins ungrade and need billet pieces in trans.
*Each step increases power. Each power step comes with more FUN and more WEAR. The more FUN, the more WEAR so BEWARE!!
Be safe, increase as pocket book allows, have FUN!!!

It developed a slight knock. I had one go last year but it was the solenoid. This seems to be a dying injector. That's why I'm going to just replace them all.

Spoke with exergy. It's about $500 cheaper to buy stock Bosch ones and send them to exergy to enlarge and balance instead buying them from exergy.

Then you have a molested injector and that usually does not end well. Trying to do injectors on the cheap is just not a good idea, the landscape is littered with the remains of those efforts.

How is it any different?
Exergy buys Bosch ones and enlarges them.

Unless I'm missing something
