That is not a v10 kit, it's a pair of turbos and some hardware. You'll have to fabricate the tubing, exhaust,etc,etc, and supply an intercooler too.
1st thing you should notice is this...the girl in a bikini in the title pic of the ad....just click the big "X" and walk away. Save yourself the misery.

Looks pretty baddazz to me so you say it is not worth it? what would the kit run if you = get each separate looks like a pretty good deal get some tube & weld it up.

IMO-No. You've got turbos of an unknown origin with only god-knows-what for internal construction (probably cheapo chinese copies of quality turbochargers), a pair of unknown quality blowoff valves, and an assortment of unknown quality lines, hoses, fittings. There's no fuel injectors, no intercooler, no fuel pump, no new MAF, etc, etc, etc.
If you want a quality turbocharger that'll last- you need to get a quality turbocharger, and deal with someone that KNOWS the proper sizing requirements of a 6.8L to get power/tq peaks in the rev range where you intend on using the engine.

X2. That Kit? is just a bunch of parts you still have to supply critical parts and do all of the fabtication. If you want to turbo or twin turbo and do not have the time or expertize to do the whole job you should go to one of the companys that do it for you "Turn Key" with a warrantee.

T76 .80ar turbo charger X 2 set ( good for 1000 hp each)





That is your cue to run!!!!!!!!! That turbo will not support a large 300 hp engine with that AR!!!

Why not just get find an old jet engine to strap in to the back? I just don't see why you'd put a turbo, or twin turbo in to one of these trucks. Now if you've just got money laying around, that's cool I'd be doing the same thing, but on a daily driver? Just seems kind of dumb, something a high school kid would want.

We're all pretty much kids at heart, just ask our wives. I would like to find one of those rocket motor dealies that was around in the '60s and bolt that to the dif. in my Navigator. Now THAT would be a ride!

Haha that would be absolutely amazing. I'm a kid too, I just found the platform that best suites my desires towards automobiles. If you want a twin turbo get a sports car, or even a Ford F150 platform, not the beast of a truck the 6.8L resides in.

There is only 1 real reason most guys buy the BIG trucks with the biggest engines and that is because "Too much is never enough!"

Chit man...I turn 37 in a few days and I would be all over a turn key turbo for my 09 V10... I guess I am just a high school kid that never grew up
That or I REALLY use my truck and pull a 10k trailer regularly and want that little something extra pulling in the high country leaving the diesel guys scratching their heads

How About?

If you really want a good turbo system go with STS Squires Turbo Systems - Turbocharged Innovation!
Saw one of their systems in the shop and it was awesome. In a nutshell the turbo takes the place of the muffler. You can do twin turbo without taking up any room under the hood.
Pricey but high on the cool factor.

I think it produced so much boost that it blew the intake off:
