any experiences with turbo set ups on 07 5.9. i got a pretty much stock truck other than exhaust, 30% over nozzles, air horn, and studded. but i’ve been thrown all over the place about turbo set ups. the choices i’ve narrowed down is either a s369 or a s467. i’ve been told a 369 is a very good over all turbo. but a 467 keeps my egts lower and with the right tuning i can keep my power around 600-650 hp and gives me more room to grow with later upgrades. But i’m wondering if running a 467 will it cause any issues? thanks

S364.5 is probably a good choice for a more stock application. If it's a manual I might go with the s369 but with only 30% nozzles it will spool slow. I haven't heard of anyone running a big bodied 400 on a stock 5.9.

Do you have an over all goal? A 467 will spool on the slower side, but quality custom tuning will help that.

If 600-650 is your HP goal and you want room to grow, an SXE 364 would be a solid choice.

The Borg Warner sxe364 is also what I was meaning. If you aren't doing a second gen swap a modified he351 is also a good option.

Ran a 467/83/.90 for a few years on an ‘06 auto with EFI live. On a 5.9 that sees street use I would absolutely use the .90 turbine housing. Half the time was with stock injectors and the other with 60% overs. It spooled pretty well for its size and power potential, dudes have pushed them past 850hp with large injectors. Towed 6000 lbs across the country easy. Midwest and southerners will have no problem. I will say once you get above 3000-4000’ you start having to work the OD-off button strategically. If you tow heavy in the mountains I would go smaller for sure.

The whole deal with single turbos is balancing response with peak power. No sense in buying a 850hp charger (67/83.90) if you don’t plan on hitting over 650. You’re screwing yourself with extra lag that you didn’t need. Seems to me for your power goal I’d go for a 63/68/.83 or 64.5/73/.91 max for 650hp. Maybe tops a 66/73/.91 but thats more a 700-750 hp charger.

Well that’s pretty much where i’m at. i’d like to daily drive around 650 and turn it up on weekends of coarse around 750. i more less want to know, how it reacts and responds with having no valvetrain upgrades, intercooler, ect. When you ran yours, did you have an issues with valve train, egts, ect.?? Thank you

I have a 467/83/1.0 with 100% overs and i can’t imagine towing anything with it. Drove up to the mountains in North Carolina and could hit 1400 degrees just holding it at the speed limit. This could be a tuning issue but I’m not sure.

When I tossed mine in I also did ARP2000 studs, 103# valve springs, and thick wall manton pushrods so I can’t comment on that. However, I would say that a truck operating above 45 psi and/or above 3500 rpm on the reg should have the springs and pushrods upgraded. Hamilton probably knows the exact limit of when power starts to degrade from float and then further along when metal hits metal but if I recall correctly it was somewhere in the 45-55psi range for float. My 467 hit around 52 psi max load and I still needed more fuel.

empty I would hit about 1200* up a long 7% grade 70mph around 4000’ elevation. Towing that 6000# trailer I just tossed her in OD-off and pulled it at 60mph and nothing got above 1250*.

For the OP I’d still recommend a 66/73/.83 sxe (there’s a dual internal gated T4 housing that’d be Gucci) or non gated .91 housing. She’ll have a little better response with the thinner shaft and lighter turbine and still hit 700-750hp with enough injector.
