I am planning on throwing a set of 100hp or 150hp injectors in my truck before too long, not for sure which one I will go with yet, I am having a hard time making up my mind, But to the point, here is my question to you all:

*If I decide to go with 100hp injectors What brand turbo and what size specs should I go with??


*If I decide to go with 150hp injectors What brand turbo and what size specs should I go with??

Also, what brand head studs should i go with as well becuase I know that I will need them. Thanks for the help yall!!!!

You wont necesarily need the head studs with a setup like that.

I would go with a set of 150s and a 62mm charger.... you will be wishing you did if you go with 100s.

I wouldn't need head studs with 150's and a turbo on top of my drag comp??

What estimated boost would i be hitting with that set up in your opinion?

I would say around 40ish. That would put you right at the limit of needing studs. If you really want studs, then go with ARP. Give you a peace of mind atleast. I know a shop who always has them in stock, pm me if you would like details.

You can wastegate it to whatever you want. I would wastegate it to about 40psi and wouldnt worry about it. A 62 should pretty much clean up 150s set to 40psi. I dont have headstuds in the truck in my sig and havent had a problem with it. I have the wastegate set to 42psi and have seen spikes up to 50. It still smokes quite a bit @ wot, but im gonna retorque the stock bolts to 125 ft lbs and crank the boost to about 50psi here soon.

I run everything listed in my sig, and it's pretty similar to yours. I see 40lbs max, and that's where the waste gate is set at. You won't need studs just yet, but you will want to retorque your head bolts.

When I get a new HTT turbo, I know that an HX40 downpipe is required. Does the new turbo come with a flange or do I have to buy a new 4inch flange or how exactly does that work??

All High Tech 62mm and up come set up for an HX40 downpipe. I am not sure about the HTBG series as I have no experience with them. All you will need to install is the new HX40 downpipe and a v band clamp. Most pipes come with the clamp but some don't. You may also need a 4" to 5" adapter to hook into your existing exhaust.

just worried about towing with the 200s and also the fuel milage....stuck between f1
150s and 200s but If I think that I would ever want 200s down the road, I would rather spend the extra $100 now for the 200s instead of tryin to sell my 150s later and then buying new 200s.....would have more money tied up in it.
