if your truck is stock and its auto then your youd be stupid putting any power mods like that right now, its just gonna slip like crazy and the powers not gonna get to the ground, your gonna need to add at least a better torque converter and a valve body upgrade.
I'm not trying to be rude but I said earlier on that I'm just trying to get a game plan together first. I'm not stupid enough to just go straight to injectors lol. I'm gonna do the tranny then all the free mods and then injectors and stuff.
basically s300 based turbos are the norm for aftermarket turbos for our trucks but as far as size i think a 64/68/14 is gonna be your best bet.
the 71mm and bigger exhaust wheels probably are gonna be more laggy than youll like thats why the 68 is about as best as you can get for all around driveability. the 71 has more top end and more lag, the 65 has low end and no top end,..but the exhaust wheel determines lag. the bd super b special(64/71/.8ish a/r) uses a 71mm exhaust wheel for comparisons
yes that would work pretty good, youll have a lot of fuel and that should support it, now for this 64/68/14: the first number is the compressor wheel diameter in mm, the second number is the turbine or exhaust wheel in mm and the 3rd number can be seen two ways but its the size of the exhausting housing, as for 14 it stands for 14 cm2, the other way it can be seen is in a/r, its a ratio of the exhaust discharge area vs the distance from the center of turbine wheel to the center of the cross sectional area. Smaller A/R housing has faster spool up. Bigger A/R housing has less back pressure, more flow for the top end.
I have the super B (s300) with those injectors, but I value good response from my turbos as well as smokeless take offs. Others may rather have less response, more smoke and more top end. I tend to error on the side of a larger than needed injectors, then use the proper fuel plate to get it where I want it. Are you asking what is the largest turbo you can light with 5x14s?
