I would have to go back and look thru old posts, but the specs on the Bladerunner are horrible at best. It doesn't have the compressor map to be a useful turbo, but for some reason the compressor map has been removed from the website????

 

I'd look for a different turbo.

Typically I suggest using a smaller injector but using a fuel module like Edge Juice or Edge Comp for management of fuel and added fuelling. Using a large nozzle might reduce MPG's for a daily driver. But if this truck is going to be strictly strip and track then I say go for it. Grab the big injectors and a module.

How much of an MPG loss? Just 1-2 or more? I am not really concerned about max MPG. I am getting 23-24 now with my current set up.  I would like more performance out of it . That's why I was thinking turbo and injecors . I just don't know which turbo since I guess the AFE is junk.

If its just the fuel in your sig ....... you want a superB or a he351cw.

 

+2 for the Super B.  Not too long ago, there was a very good article comparing the top rated turbo's in Diesel power magazine.   IIRC the Super B was one of the top contenders.  The best overall setup was twins but that drives the cost immensely higher. 

 

Take a look and see what you think.  Hope this helps answer your questions.

Those kind of turbo tests are a joke at best, unless your truck lives at WOT.

In the real world the slowest spooling turbo is NOT the best towing turbo.. It doesn't work that way.

I could go on and on about the uselessness of that series of tests, but I think it's rather apparent.

So I guess The super B single is the way to go. I had looked at it. I just don't know much about BD turbos 

 

In my opinion, I think the stock turbo will produce pretty much all you want once you get some decent size injectors.  Before I would go with the Super B turbo or any turbo producing more boost than the stock turbo or much over 30 psi, I would strongly recommend installing ARP head studs to maximize the chances against blowing the OEM head gasket.  I realize there are folks out there who are running the OEM head bolts and gasket with bigger turbo's and boost approaching the upper 30's psi or near 40 psi but I think they are taking a risk in doing so.  The transmission is a weak point once you up the power as well.  I am running the OEM turbo and I have to be careful especially when pulling or hauling a heavy load as my set up can easily slip the OEM clutch and achieve 36 psi boost if not careful.  I try my best to stay under 30 psi.  Better to match the engine components to work together and compliment each other in making reliable and consistent power.
