It all depends on what mods you run. Pretty much if you do head studs and watch your gauges you should be ok. I have had 0 issues with mine and you can get my kit from K2 Diesel.

Yeah, with twins alone EGTs should never be an issue. Smaller nozzles and you should also stay cool enough. If you have an EGT gauge then you should be able to tell when you are getting hot and can back out of it.

Biggest issue I see with twins is, your gonna want more power. It starts with a tune, the twins, then bigger injectors, modded pump or duals, even bigger injectors, then bigger turbos...its a slippery slope, and if your like me and many guys, it can snowball real fast. Of course f your like me, your aspirations are FAR higher than the wallet is thick. Id have over 1000hp on fuel if the wallet would allow
