Building trans and swapping turbo need opinions

My truck is parked now for winter. I have some plans for it over the winter that I would like to do. I am gonna build my trans and I am also thinking about turbo's. almost everyone I have talked to has told me to go with a single as opposed to twins. Wondering what your guys thoughts are on the 4094 ? Also If anyone has any input on other turbos i would love to hear. I was thinking about the cheetah but heard they aren't reliable. Thanks guys

If you got the cash do a compound set up. S475. You won't regret it.

I don't feel comfortable doing something like that. I would rather pay and have it built properly

The twin kit in my truck is from industrial injection, I think it's around $3500. I've heard that SDP makes a much nicer kit, it's a little more money I think tho. You don't get any different results I don't think. Achieve about 55-60 psi...never see above 1200-1250 EGT...my truck has many more supporting mods as well tho...
