Anybody have anything good or bad to say about the pusher intake s475 compound kit? Would also get the passenger intake/ intercooler kit and driver intercooler tube. I'm 12 2500 g56 manual; efi live, edge cts2, southbend dual disc, BD intake horn, afe air intake, 5in straight pipe,
165gph fass titanium and head studs. I know I'll need a new tune and have oil/trans temp sensors to install.

Ps: I've been looking at this for 2+ years and never pulled the trigger.

Greg A is running one on his 18 dually, did a few vids on the install. Fit and finish seemed really, really nice. Install seemed straightforward.

Course I don’t know how relative that would be to a regular (ie not “sponsored”) vehicle. Dude basically brought home a $70k truck and immediately did over $30k worth of mods to it. Lift pump, big tank, cat filters, stroker pump, injectors, studs, deleted and tuned, stainless manifold, cheetah VGT, pusher compounds, mishimoto intercooler, hot and cold pipes, banks monster ram, grid delete, full turbo back exhaust… and that’s not even getting into the lift, wheels, built trans, and lighting. There comes a point where some of these builds get so extensively sponsored they’re not even relatable anymore.

Have you looked into the ATS arc-flow twins manifold? Looks to combine a mount and intermediate pipe. As much as I’m not a fan of their slushboxes, we’ve gotta give credit where due and their turbos / turbo accessories are pretty legit. Seems like this and the pusher kit are probably the most complete - and least intrusive - compound kits. By that, I mean they seem to require moving not a bunch of other stuff under the hood to make them work.

How extensive are you looking to get with the whole thing? Injectors? Pump? Trans?

I’m no expert on these voodoo snails… however it appears several threads here and elsewhere suggest a smaller atmosphere turbo in the high 60s or low 70s could be tuned to run on stock injectors and pump, without too much effort being put into the transmission. Leaning on it hard with fueling mods, even aggressive tuning, will have the stock lift pump at max duty cycle before you get to the max capability of the injectors or stock cp3. But if you’re just looking for some extra air for cleaning up towing, my (admittedly limited) understanding suggests a smaller compound kit could get you exactly what you’re looking for with good, careful tuning.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Have this exact kit on a 2011 w/ 424k km ( Installed @ 417k ) and a 68rfe that appears to be stock. Proven Diesel tunes w/ the 5 position SOTF running on the LBF tune @ 100hp (Low Boost Fuel, 3rd position) w/ TCM tune. Stock 4" exhaust mates right up to the supplied down pipe tho I do remember adding a small amount of pipe somewhere, I will confirm the location for you. Aside from that it is exactly what you would expect / want from a bolt on kit. Small modifications need to be done to an ac pipe and a coolant pipe. I took my time with the install and it was done under one day of sunlight.



I had this kit on my truck prior to studding it tho I kept my foot in the correct position until I had the time to install some exotic performance headstuds, stud for stud. Zero complaints with these either, great bang for your buck.


If I could go back to install, the only thing I would have done different is install the kit "loose" then get everything aligned and then torqued down.
