My definition of good doesn't associate at all with big single and stock fuel.
Sorry about that, what i'm meaning is that i've seen people run a s475 single with stock fuel making around 550-600 HP and making the bottom end last a "little" longer lol. I wouldn't be totally upset if i do put a s475 on my truck and scatter the engine, due to that would give me an excuse to tell the wife why I need to build it

Things change a bit with better flowing heads and manifolds. I'm guessing that's had something to do with it.

Why in the fawk would you put a 475 on with half the fuel it can use? Is this duramax standard practice?

A Stock lb7 turbo can about make 550rwhp, why would you use a 475 to make the same hp and have a ton of lag?

Planning for the future, At some point will be upgrading the fueling system on the truck. I will be building the transmission first before I do anything with the turbo so would like to know if im gonna go with compounds or a big single for the converter. The truck is a budget build and I don't have 15k just to throw at it for fueling and air upgrades at one time.
