I have a 2013 lml. Has up pipes manifolds lift pump IC pipes powerflow 750 etc. I'm doing a compound kit. My goal is 750. Which turbo will better suffice and operate better when jumping between 550 for towing and 750 for fun. Aaanndddd go!

I know a guy that ran a s475 on his dmax. While it ran decent with the stock turbo I kinda thought it needed a Kittle more pep. I could easily walk away from him with my single. Now he has went over 800hp with a Danville turbo and an s475. Runs much better

I'm thinking of eventually putting a 366 in the valley. But to start I'm not sure if I want to go with the 475 or the 478. I don't want to go over 750. It's my daily driver

I'm a big singles person myself, but between the 2 I would go with the s478. The 75 isn't really all that big for secondary. Ever considered an s480?

I've read alot into the s480. Paired with a stock charger they can be pretty laggy but paired with something like a 366 they can make some damn good power. The 478 should perform almost just like the 475 till around 700-750 where the 475 maxes out.. but I don't want more than that.. will running the 475 at max be worse than running a 478 at 80%?
I'd like more power but it's my daily and over 750 Ill start having to worry about longivity and internals

We've done a few LML's with Billet S480's, they work well and help you keep egt's down at that power level. If you're planning to push it to 750rwhp then I would recommend it.

So maybe I should do the 78... lol spools like a 75 and flows like an 80.. suppose it's only a couple hundred dollar diff. I just don't want to be dissapointed if say my injectors only allow me 700 and the turbo is underpowered and laggy
