You are talking single turbo. When you run compounds they just wonít hold up as well from my experiences.

lolol. So turbos dictate piston life now? I guess I learn new things everyday.
I guess I’m just not very experienced in the diesel performance field.

They dictate boost number which effects cylinder pressures and effect torque numbers as well. It really doesnít matter to me what you do since itís not my money. I offered what I thought was friendly advice.

Yep turbos dictate pistons like they dictate rods. Where the power hits and fueling and spoil and pulse width. Everything. At least thatís what I understand from my readings

There is just an amazing amount of difference between popping a couple good numbers on the Dyno and laying it down frequently on the street or strip.

But, everyone to their own. Your money, your party. All of the aftermarket manufacturers exist and prosper from lessons learned.

The thrill of making power with inadequate parts is akin to Russian roulette. The thrill lasts until the hammer hits the primer.

I like this^^^^^ I personally prefer the peace of mind of jumping in my truck knowing itís built right rather then being on the ragged edge all the time.

Fellas, just let it roll. No matter how you do anything it'll be a learning experience. No sense in arguing over something we already know. You can have the perfect build and your crank can still fail at any time lol..... Just saying.
