Arrow Twin turbo question

I was considering getting a HTT sled puller 66 turbo and i was wanting to know if i could use the stock turbo and just run them together as a twin combo?, If i could do this , where would i get the pipes and everything to make it work? thanks everybody, Alex S.

I think you need a bigger turbo for the bottom. Not sure, but I think its a bit small. How much power are you putting out?

Well i have around 550 to 600 hp on a good day lol, im just tired of extremely high EGT so i wanted to go with a good strong turbo, ive heard good things about HTT turbos also, if the sled puller and stock turbo cant work together, i might just save up and buy a twin kit, ive been lookin at one that can handle 700 hp and thats about what kind of power i want.

HTT sells an HT3B that they customize for twin use. It's way more affordable than the Sled puller series, I think it's aroud 5 or 600 bux.

You can do it with a different and larger bottom for a lot cheaper than buying the twins kit. A lot of guys will run a stock turbo with an HT3b, like a 26cm exhaust housing, but I wouldn't trust your stock turbo in twins over 550-600ish.
I've heard some really great things about the S300/S400 combination. Or a 35/40 hybrid with an S400.
Are you running any drugs?
550-600 is a big number for a stock turbo, and I would definitely look into upgrading that in a hurry.

Yeah, thats my point exactly, That is what I'm going to use. You can pick one up for about 450 if you shop around. But I still don't think your stock turbo will be a great choice for the top if you want over 600.

You know, Industrial has that new Silver Bullet single out. Supposed to be the ticket for big singles. Decent spool up and LOTS of power handling. Brett has been trying to get me to ditch my twins and try one for a bit now. Might have to do a little swap and see.

Check em out!

Have you Studded your motor yet? You will definitely want to if you are running twins and/or meth. You also need to pick up a manifold for the twins, as well as making your own plumbing.

Rentless diesel and Kendrick Diesel both sell kits that utelize your stock turbo, and give you everything else you need. they are both going for around 3K-ish. One uses a B2 the other an ht3b, but they both say if you want over 600hp you need a bigger top turbo. It is worth looking into though.
