Triples vs twins

Iím thinking of changing my setup to compounds and looking at dps triples and called about them and they tried to talk me into twins said they would have better spool and more power!

Help me understand how a S480 will turn better than 2 S362ís?

Triples are often a cheaper alternative to a set of larger compounds.



Most triple applications on street trucks are either done to look cool or save money. You also are going to have to give up some space that is generally occupied by something else to fit them in.

Yeah I know a lot of show trucks do triples! Dps is telling me the triples are harder to tune and the twins they wanted me to run was with there new vgt as the pressure charger. I think that would be ok if it wasnít new and proven but I think Iíll wait on that to see how they do.

Iíve talk to Pius about compounds and he ask u about your set up and builds the chargers to what the engine wants! He says he wouldnt do a married wastegate because he liked a wastegate on the manifold and builds to your boost level. I may wait awhile and have him built me the turbos and get crazy Carl to build a kit!

I just like the triple ideal but ainít sure which way to go yet.

FWIW, I've a triple S362sxe fueled by a 12mm VE. It's pretty-much lit by 2200 or so. 150ish lb/min. I would definitely run an external gate if you're gonna be winding it higher than 3500 rpm, with more fuel than me.
