My truck is Mike's donor truck and we worked it out to where he could have it for a couple months. He is mocking everything up and inventorying everything needed for a kit. Like he stated in his build thread he only uses top notch parts...Garrett, Tial, Bosch, AN fittings, 304 stainless steel, etc. and of course there are tons of options. I'm getting the hot side all coated in black and I was going to stay with the 5.7 intake until Timmy found me the 6.1. Anyone considering a kit should seriously PM MGH with questions. I will continue to post pics to try and show the build quality and his attention to detail.
WRT to the 68rfe internals I'd have to refer you to Mike on that one. The problem with the 545rfe is the frictions not the gears.
