you can do it, but your gonna need over 100hp injectors and a fueling box to make it spool at all. I thought about upgrading my turbo later and thats what i will do. Prolly a 64-16. Not sure what size blade though.
If you used the 64 turbo then there shouldn't be a problem with exhaust temps.
I know a guy with a common rail (sorta apples to oranges), but he ran the 64/16 on a street truck running one program and 180 horse injectors. He only made 1400* at the end of the track. That truck was good for just over 600 horse. Around town the turbo lit well and wasn't laggy at all. There was smoke, but it was controllable. I think that the single can keep up with all the vp44 will do, but it may not be totally streetable. The twins that your talking about would prolly be alot more streetable.
Yeah, thats the main concern is street driving, and smoke control. My buddy was running a Smarty TST stack with new mach 5's and a Sled puller 66 and that thing would get crazy hot and he couldn't control the smoke. He said it was fine on the track, and with the boxes off, he could control smoke alright but it was a pig.
