either turbo will work fine, but there are a lot of different size 3b's. i run one with a 2.9 inducer on bottom and a hx40 on top. i run 58 psi with 3 pop off valves set at 50 psi. i just drove to nashville tn from dfw tx towing a tow dolly. i got 23.5 mpg at 75 or so mph. this is in my regular cab short bed with 3.55 and a auto. it still has the stock head gasket with the stock bolts on it. it has never been pulled off. i have 264k on it and dynoed 513 uncorrected last month. it suprised me it towed so well, we picked up a 98 quad cab short bed and i never had the egts go over 1000. i have decided to pull these twins off and put them on my dually because the worked so well towing.
i am going to build a big set for the little truck. and i will put on the ported head and double o ring the block to get ready for 100 plus pounds of boost.
