Default Any turbo ls knowledge?

Does anyone have good turbo ls knowledge? 6.0 4l80 thinking about cam, turbo, springs and minor trans work.

Boat tow rig and daily driver

If the tuning and cooling is right, it should tow fine on a moderate tune. How big of a turbo and what are the hp goals?

No goals in mind. I ready 475s work well on 6.0s and they are readily available and cheap

472/475/480 etc all work well with the right exhaust housing on a 6.0. A 472/83/.90 T4 would spool great and make 700hp. Fueling and oil temps will be the most important factor to keep it alive towing. A good tune will have safety factors built in to keep it from leaning out if any part of the system fails.

We are running a 480/96/1.0 T4 on a forged 408 right now and it spools excellent from 2200rpms and up. The exhaust side is the limiting factor but it should be an easy 800hp. Need to bump up to a T6 96mm turbine for more than that.

Sounds like a party! Lol. I have been trying to get my buddy here to throw a 488 on his 408 but he is scared of it.

If you go with high quality parts the savings is minimal really.

I'm gonna get out of the dmax owner game a little bit and buy a house. Already picked up a 6.0 tow rig but can't leave anything alone and have a spare 6.0
And 4l80

Buy one of those take off lsa blowers floating around and build a kit on the cheap. You can't beat a PD blower down low.
