Turbo mania by MGH
1 Attachment(s)
My single turbo build is finally underway. MGH is handling everything (except HHP will be tuning it) and after having met him there isn't anyone else I'd want to work on my truck. If you do a search you'll find his AWD twin turbo setup too. I've run out of space for picture uploads so I've started uploading pictures to an album on my user profile page. Sorry I can't post them here.

Sick! Can't wait to see the completed truck.

What kind of boost are you going with?

Red05Ram 08-16-2012 07:22 AM

Gonna be some serious gains I wanna see what kind of power you're gonna get with that turbo. Curious how fast it's gonna spool see what kind of torque line you will have! Maybe help me make a future decision lol. Good luck with everything and I'm excited to see the progress

thanks guys.
Mike has done a bunch of research with his supplier to meet my goals. planning on 7-8 psi and I'd like it spool low but not so low that she'll go into boost under "normal" driving. if that makes sense.

It's going to be a beast! Can't wait to see how it all looks mocked up...and to see how that 6.1 turns out!
