Twins

A buddy of mine had a question I was unable to answer for him
What are the benefits and what can you get for power running a twin turbo set up on a 2000 7.3

*TOW MATER* 2010 F-350 crew cab long box single wheel, go recon running lights and a few other little things, more to come...

Just about everyone that runs "twins" on a 7.3L are actually running a compound turbo setup. A smaller turbo for quicker spoolup on the bottom end, and a larger turbo for airflow on the top end.

This allows you to run a 600+ hp truck as a daily driver. Try driving a 600 hp truck with a single large turbo, and you'll hate life until the RPM's climb above 2000.

All of it.

"MOby" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3 4x4. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a new "secret" blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its still not the fastest, but its quick enough to worry lots!
