Started tearing down the truck Friday to install my new SDP triple 300s kit! Getting the old IHI out was a real PITA-I was not one of the lucky ones with the down pipe. Besides that the other PITA was making the FPRV work with the new 3" Y bridge, ended up cutting and rerouting some of the low pres return lines to bypass the FPRV, then getting creative with the FPRV itself to make it fit and just routed the FPRV line over the side of the frame with a dust cover (no fuel unless I pop the FPRV anyways). We also put a LBZ FPR in the truck while I was there.
SOOO after about 18-19 hours of work I'm ready to start putting it back together...
My internet is slow here so pics when I get a chance next week
Updates soon!

Ok if you keep the fueling down....But it can make way more power than it can take-I'm working on a build/fuel system next

the bottom end isn’t staying stock for long...but even with stock fuel it should spool like a 475/366 setup. If your going to stay stock then go with a 475/stock or 475/300 something. Triples will spool a little faster than a 480 so that’s why I went with it.

Interesting, thanks! Not dogging your choice or anything, I am still very new to the diesel world and just trying to learn all I can. This is honestly the first time I've heard of a triple setup, so... :eek:

This is SDPs first kit, there are some other kit makers out there that have kits too. but it is kind of a new thing, here is a writeup I did a while ago about it, it needs to be updated but here you go:
