Twins would be you best bet. At least for a daily driver. But it really depends on what you plan on doing with the truck, do you want to sled pull, drag race, just a daily driver. That can help us determine whats best for your application.

What class? And is it dedicated puller or combo with DD? Could go with a big single for a dedicacted puller depending on what class. But if it will be a DD you will probly need twins.

And K31 could work out pretty good too. Also known as a Aurora 5000. Similar to a s400, the s400 might be a little cheaper. I see them for abotu $600 usually. It'll take a while to spool though, better have a ton of fuel and RPM.

I think that the k31's spool better than the s400s, so thats a good choice for a single. But I think they are also more expensive. II has them in a few varieties http://www.industrialinjection.com/id49.html


As for the s400 HTT lists it for $625 http://www.htturbo.com/ctb.htm

If your gonna pull it I would go with a large single. It you run twins that will always get you bumped up a class. But by far twins is always a lot nice than a large single as a street driver! Im learning to like it but twins will be a lot nice ( once I get the head work done!)
