think the only way you could do a hood stack is off a twin since thats where your exhaust will be close to(hood)

im curious how your doing a hood stack? hood stacks are hard on our trucks cause of where the turbo is
Its true that its hard, but it can be done. Its just a tight tight fit.

yes of course unless he got twins! trent neil has a hood stack
I'm tempted to buy another hood in the future just for a hood stack:D Should save a bit of weight, at least enough to compensate for the added turbo.

man can i get a job where you are working? Must be nice to buy a all but new truck and drop 10k in it rate away.

I would go with MPI twins i have never heard enything bad about there kits but there are alot of things you need before twins Lift pump, Intercooler, EFI, head studs, internals, Stage 5 trans, man the list goes on and on and on. let me know how long your Dmax holds on if you dont build it before you start pushing 60psi or more boost.

u dont need intercooler u dont need head studs, you dont need interals, you dont need stage 5 trans
all you will need if u get twins is a stage IV or stage III trans, lift pump, guages, efi, exhaust,tie rods, and thats all really

well everybody does thing different but theres no way i would drop that much money on a set of twins and then tune them down so my stock truck would last. our trucks are good for about 50 55psi of boost without head studs and a good set of twins are capable of more then that so why buy them if your going to tame them. If you go making passes at the track without upgrading your interals and you arent a pro with tuning its a matter of time befor your ride is geting towed to the local shop.

If you think about it the upgrades to go with twins is simple, that is for a daily driver and not racing. Fuel upgrade, tuning upgrade and some gauges to keep an eye on things. For racing you will need better hotter tuning, a trans and front end parts

Exactly!! Kyle is right on the money from what I've found.

Boost doesn't kill the motors, its cylinder pressure and heat. They say to keep the boost under 50-55psi to stay away from head gasket issues but I haven't had problems at 60-62psi.
