I am getting the STS "Universal" kit for my 07 Ram 4.7 Li. Manual 6 speed. I was quoted approximately $4000 for everything, maybe a little more for the Intercooler. I've done a lot of research. Tuning is absolutely necessary unless you're willing to rebuild your engine. I'm having the computer completely retuned. Intercooler is a must. About 8 lbs. of boost will turn your Ram into a powerhouse. Retro Rides is doing all the work. If you want gas mileage don't waste your time with a turbo. Get a cold air intake and a tuner. You'll save thousands over a turbo and get the same mileage results.
On a side note. Has anyone experienced steering problems? Rack and Pinion, struts, etc? I've had bushings go bad twice already.... Thanks!!
