ROSEWOOD STAGE 1.5 OR 2?

I have already purchased my s366 turbo and t500 oil pump. I want a reliable truck, do you think the stage II's would be ok?

People typically go with stage 1's or 1.5's with the s366 it seems. I guess if you wanted to get a little extra power you could have the stage 2's tunes down to right where its best for you. Id say go with the 1.5's

Go with stageII's 180/80

Keep in mind to run the s366 you have to go with e-fuel if you using the irate mounting kit.

You'll also need a IC or get creative with a intake spyder

That set up with the right tuning will put you around 425hp

Cause the irate kit uses the hole for the stock fuel pump as the oil return for the turbo

I'll probably go with the stage 2's like you have Mike but is it an option for the springs, head studs and push rods or a must have? If its a must have then I might just go with stage 1.5's, IDK!

It's only a must have if you plan on running hard high RPM'S like racing and WOT runs. Just using it to tow I think you'd be fine. I just don't see you towing at 40psi of boost

You could always do a set of 238/100 hybrids the you can have them tuned for any injector from stock or stageIII or anything in between

hahahaha, no I can't see towing at 40psi of boost, that's for sure. Mine will melt down now at a continuous 20psi towing.

I'll be honest, I don't know enough about the different size injectors.

I'd go size two and have them detuned. You really can't go bigger on flow than what you have. But you can sure go lower.

Yeah I was considering hybrids, but seems though im already changing the HPOP I shouldnt have to worry about running out of oil should I? Is there any other plus to having hybrids besides the fact they use less oil?
