Some guys on PSNation were asking for parts lists for what is required to do the project so here is what I posted....

Not sure if I mentioned this here yet, but I am looking to offer a kit for sale, I will make all modifications, and fabricate parts required parts.

6.4 stock parts:
•exhaust manifolds
•up pipes (would need to be modified slightly would be included in my kit price)
•Intake manifold
•Turbo's
•Turbo VGT actuator
•Turbo crossover tube
•Down pipe (I used 4" flo pro)

6.0 stock parts
•Dual alternator setup for relocating alternator to lower position. If you have dual alternators you will need to remove the upper one. Either case the main belt needs to be shortened.
•E-series FICM harness

Fabricated parts (these are parts I can make available for purchase)
•Turbo pedestal
•Both IC pipes
•Pre-turbo to intake pipes
•FICM Mount

Parts requiring some modification
•6.0 PCM-FICM harness to be extended (this may need to be done in vehicle).

There are many other little incidental items that are needed to finish it up but that'a all the big stuff.

I got the truck back on the road today, she sure pulls way more than with the stock turbo. It seems like they could use some more fuel. WOT it is smoke free on the canned SCT performance tune, where as with the stock turbo, I would smoke like crazy any time I really leaned into it. I am quite impressed after today's test drive. Tomorrow I will finish up my temporary VGT actuation and I will report back with how the small turbo does cleaning up the fuel at the low end.

Shockingly the EGT's were INCREADIBLY low on my WOT runs today, I am wondering if I have an issue with my EGT sensor... I never broke 700*

This is hands down one of the most interesting threads I have ever read. I've contemplated this for a long time just like everyone else. Good to see some hard evidence that it sure can fit in 6.0 bay pretty nice. This setup even looks cleaner than any of the twin setups for sale. Cant wait for the updates on the vgt controls and tuning aspects. Awesome job TheRealMuhcoy!!!

Update
The truck is on the road, running well. I have no other setup to compare it to, but it is fun! I am still on stock injectors and running IDP's Xtreme Street tune. Here is a video at 75MPH, hard to see the Edge, but EGT's were about 750*

I will be building my injectors soon.

How much power do you think it added over the stock turbo

There is no question that these turbo's flow more than the stocker. On a canned SCT tune (garbage tune) I made 366HP, I never dyno'd the stock turbo on that tune so I can't say exactly what the gains were.

I will say that they are a major improvement to the stock turbo because I was too lazy to to upload a tow tune before I hitched up to our 7500lb 20' enclosed trailer. Here is how it did pulling the trailer on IDP's Extreme Race tune


I am working on making a kit for sale if anyone is interested let me know.

Hey man I'm looking into doing this also. How much do you sell the install kit for. I need just the pedestal piping and ficm mount. Thanks Robert
