is it worth my time to swap turbo housings?

well twin turbo for me is not gonna happen. the guy that was gonna do it for me backed out..it went from were gonna do it in a month or so here is what you need to buy. so i bought. then it was next month , next month and now not even returning a email..so here i sit with alot of money out of my pocket and nothing to show for it...so now my question to you folk is this. 1 of the things i bought was a 16cm housing for my stock 35 right now i am running the stock 35 with a 9cm housing. would it be worth my time to swap housings? will i gain anything by it?

It will help keep temps a little more manageable, but will come at the cost of spool up potentially. What twins were you going to run, and what parts do you already have? Was this guy going to do the work for free or what? Twins would still be the ideal way to go, what injectors are you running?

Pushing that much fuel through a HX35/9 and 4.10 gears?!?! Talk about choking your engine off. The stock 12 housing with stock fueling to to restrictive at the top end and 4.10s as it is. On my '97, I picked up 1mpg going to a PDR HX40/16 from the stocker. The HTT 64/14 turbo I replaced it with was a FAR better choice, though. Same mileage with MUCH lower EGTs and half the smoke.

i know i will have some lag compared to what i have now and i am ok with that because i pretty much have no lag its almost like a gasser.the twins i was gonna do were my stock 35 and a ht3b. but i just sold the 3b. money was never mentioned for the twins and i know it would still be my best bet but i just do not have the coin to pay someone to do it. plus not i am planning on selling the truck in 6 months to a year so there is no sence in dumping money into it...oh and injectors are stock...

What injectors do you have? Maybe I missed it in your sig. My 16 isn't laggy at all. Frees up your exhaust as well. I put my Bank's 14 on my twins.
