Im bumping for an update.
I saw the video on Youtube, I really like the cast manifold in the photo and curious about the details, like what tune they use, what compressor they use, what boost levels it will produce and engine bay routing.
Im sure if there was an update we'd of seen it by now, but Im waiting to jump on the compound turbo bandwagon until I see someone else do it and see their logic.
Im just not completely sold on using ppei's original tune and slapping a second turbo on it.
I understand that it has the injectors essentially maxed out so it supports the second turbo fine, but Im sure there's more power and more safety that can be had by having kory tune specifically for the compounds.
Im not knocking anyone, I just want to see a different approach and see the results.
Ryan Espos compound turbo setup uses a custom tune that Kory Willis made with the truck on there dyno, not just there normal 60hp tune. The advantages of a compound turbo setup are huge and the setup from H&S is very similar is setup and benefits. The guys at Industrial Injection have been working on a compound setup as well. But it's on hold due to unfortunate circumstances.
That's really unfortunate, was this officially void from FCA or just your local dealer?
Im not afraid of losing my warranty as I basically became a very good diesel mechanic from my old 6.0 powerstroke.
After ford screwed me with their lack of support I took it upon myself to make that truck reliable and let me tell you it was the best truck after the fact. Arp headstuds, aurora turbo 60 over injectors and I even got to tinker with the tuning a little.
I will say that after poking around the engine bay of my ecodiesel, it is very well thought out. I love the tyranny which is strong enough to handle some more boost. Much like the 5r110w my old 6.o had.
Just drive like a normal human and we should get some great reliability out of this little smoker.
Im glad that multiple shops are taking stabs at this little guy. Helps keep our resale up and gives a good reputation about its engineering.
Im really very happy with the overall build, these sure aren't the same old dodge trucks from yesteryear.
Thanks for responding to my first post y'all.
I can't wait to add some of my findings as I start to do bigger changes.
