If you want twins later on, then I would suggest looking at the HTT 62/71/13ss or a 62/71/14. You would be able to use it later on in a twin setup and it would make a great driver alone. Industrial Injection also has some great turbos, silver62 and the sps62 would work great.

If i were to upgrade my turbo, i would look into ATS Aurora 4000, or an Industrial Injection Phat Shaft. Both of these turbos can be upgraded later to Compound turbo set-ups, and run good before they are matched for twins. The Phat shaft is rated alone up-to 700hp. And they are fairly inexpensive as far as turbos go.:peelout

Get an II phat shaft 62/65/14 from PDW. They have a huge II turbo sale going on right now and this turbo can be had for $1100. This is a great deal on a turbo that will tow awesome and support 500 HP. Plus, with this turbo you already have the top turbo for your choice of twins later on.

I just installed an HTT 62/13/71 with intentions of upgrading to twins in the near future. So far this turbo is an excellent daily driving and turned my truck into another animal power wise. I would definitely recommend it to you for what you wanna do.

The exhaust will flow better and you will get more air into the combustion chamber allowing you to burn your fuel more completely. You will also see lower EGT due to the better airflow.

I would recommend a tranny upgrade before the turbo. When I installed my 62/71/13ss my TC started slipping pulling perty heavy at 60 Mph and a slight uphill. Unless you are willing to do the tranny then stay with the stock turbo.
