well itll be a while until decide what kind of charger setup im going to run i need a DD first i just want some opinions i have an S472 that i was going to run as the bottom turbo in a twin setup with my HX35 on top but im throwing around the idea of running a single maybe a 66mm of some kind my truck is a 5 speed so i dont think it would be to hard to light a single of this size im planning on running a set of 5x.013s or 5x.014s what do you guys think i want to pull this truck and lots of places wont allow twins this is why im thinking a single now.

if just a daily driver, i would go with a 64/71/14, good spool, and still get quite a bit of hp out of it.

I feel the hx35 would choke on top of a S472. I'm with Shea, Unless your dedicated to twins I would think about a single for now to play with. If you think your going with twins at some point you might run a 62/64-65-14. The 65 wheel works better with twins but is not so fun as a single charger turbo. The 71 turbine wheel will lower EGT's and create better flow in the top of the power band!

Feel free to give me a call, I'll be glad to talk it over with you!

64/71 for a DD that way 1/3 of your twin setup is alread there. It will also go well with an S475 or an S480.
