So, I just picked up an AC WD 45. It has a gas engine. I was wanting to put a turbo on it. I want it to have some low end power but I want it to make a good power in mid and high range rpm. What size turbo/exhaust housings should I go for, and what can I do to better prepare the tractor for the turbo set up?

Theres a turboed WD-45 Allis puller sitting in a barn about 40 miles southeast of me...It was probably last pulled in the late 1970's-early 1980's and isn't for sale?...It turned a bunch of rpm's and could spin some 24.5 x 32's in the 4500 Super Stock class.....When it was right it could give the 77 Olivers,Wards,101 Massey's some good competition...Gary Mitchell may remember this tractor owned by Darvin B....I wish that I had a picture of it...Theres another guy in that area thats currently pulling a WD-45 with a turbo..

so do you think it would be better to run just the one turbo, or take both to better match the engine size?

No just one. Both make 400 hp. One should make 100 at 2000.

I see quite a few very negative posts on FaceBook about the Keystone Turbo company !! Better check it out from those who have spent thousands of $$$$$ and are NOT pleased with the results.

Do they make their own turbos? They look kind of familiar. gm

There is a universal turbo kit on E bay for $445. But probably to big. I would go to a take apart junk yard and look. 1 from a 3.5 Ford F150 Eco-boost would be about right. They have 2, but they boost right off idle.
