turbo choice

Which would you guys prefer, the Prostreet 66 or the Silver Bullet 66. This is not for my truck but a friend of mine and neither of us has much experience on the common rail. Thanks

I don't know, both have been very proven turbos. But I have heard alot better things about HTT's turbos. I have heard of II having bad customer service.

Whats he using the truck for? Thats a pretty big turbo, but definitely not too big for a cr motor, dependig on what fueling mods he is running. Like charlie said, I've heard more better things about the guys at HTT versus II, but don't have too much experience dealing with either one, and or their customer service. I don't think I've heard anything bad about HTT though.

I only know of one bad experience with HTT. They refused to warranty a charger though it was still under it. The truck will mostly be used for driving and drag racing. It will also eventually have twins. The 66 is a large charger, but to do what the guy is wanting I think it is a better choice than the smaller ones offered.

Well unless he wants to make a really big set of twins, 66 will be kinda big. If he really plans on doing twins one of the 62mm turbos would be a little better.

I know a guy around here that has an 06 with a 62/12 and he said that no more gain than he saw, it was not enough difference to justify buying that charger.

really, not even a significant drop in egt's? It would really depend on how much fuel he had too. Don't get me wrong, if you have a box and sticks or stacked boxes the 66 could work quite well for you, the CR motors can spool a larger turbo pretty well. However, you won't want to use that in a set of twins later on, unless you are running tons of fuel and have pretty high Hp goals. A 64 may be a better choice for you, because it will give you more air now but still be usable in a twins set up later on if thats the routeyou want to go. Just trying to limit the number of turbos you'll end up buying in the long run, thats all.

Industrial Injection has outstanding customer service. CR motors seem to spool 66s better than the 24v or 12v do. If you have enough fuel to light it, a loose converter, and don't tow heavy, then I would go with the 66. The Silver 62/14 would also be a good choice if you don't have as much fuel or want it to light a little sooner.

Thanks for the help. He is still trying to decide. I will be puting a FASS system on the truck this week, so it will be a little longer. He keeps saying he wants a streetable 700 to 750 hp. I guess I try to judge by my Ford, but if a 64 would be a better choice maybe he will go that route.

Your ford has a bit higher volume of air to get a turbo turning cause you have the 7.3L right? How is the H2 on that? I have one I am using to build a twins set up with on my dodge, But I would eventually like to switch to an Ht3b and then I may hook the H2 up to my brothers 7.3L. So Just thought I'd see what you thought.

That is a pretty big turbo I know mine is a 70mm comp wheel. The dodges just don't do as well down low getting big turbos turning cause we are 1.4L's smaller. The CR does better though than the older trucks thats for sure.
