Ok, a little question on twin turbos, how much is a twin turbo system? What would i have do to my Alison to make it handle all the power, if it gets alot of power, And is it worth what I spend for it? because if you want to know all about me well i hit a tree going home from work july 23 2003 at around 5 am and i am learning how to walk all over again(which trust me, if you thought it was hard when you were little, it hurts a little bit when your 6ft1in!), but my grandpa told me whithin 2 years if i can run 40yds in less then 15secs, then he'll buy me twin turbos for my duramax!:D And then my dads friend said he would buy me an edge chip too! so thats why i was just wondering how much money i'm going to have to spend on my transmission? how much power can she handle?

You will have to either go with a suncoast kit, ats, or other brand kit. I think the transmission stuff costs around $3000-6000 depending on which kit you go with. You will also be getting a new torque converter. This price doesn't include installation. You could talk to Mike L. on thedieselplace.com. He does transmission work and from what everybody says, he is the man when it comes to the allison transmission.

Sweet twins....but am I missing something, or does that setup shoot air straight into the engine.....non intercooled?

That's cool, I just can't follow the pipes to see exactly where they go....I'm not as educated about twins like I wish I was...

i noticed that you mentioned an Edge chip if your going for the kinda power that twins can produce don't even waste your time with Edge go with EFILive and custom tune it to perfection...

This is my second truck with them on. I used them for over two years on my LLY. I bought a new 07 LBZ, drove it for 2,000 miles, then slapped a set of MPI twins on it. Over a year now and 20,000 trouble free, shit eatin' grin, tire smokin' miles later.
