I wish I had the money to do a turbo, but I've decided that it isn't worth it for me. I have a plan to finish my truck performance wise and that includes ram air, catch can(in progress), y pipe and muffler swap(in progress), MAYBE making longtubes, and MAYBE 4.10's with LSD. Also I cut a deal with Sean(hemifever) yesterday and we are working on a hemifever tune for the 08+ 4.7L. I don't believe he's done one yet on the new 4.7L so I'm looking forward to what he can get out of it power wise(not that I'm unhappy with the superchips). I just figure it's another thing to explore, and we worked out a very good deal for me so I jumped on it. Hopefully it'll turn out good and others can benefit from it. I'm actually considering going back to the stock converter to(or maybe a different one) because I lost top end with the stall. I did a datalog today(quick) and my 0-40mph is faster but 0-60 slower(half a second slower, actually). That doesn't make me happy lol. My quad cab 4.7L with 3.55 open diff. did 0-60 in ~7.2 seconds IIRC with just the SC 93 tune with stock converter. Now with drop in air filter and the same tune, and 2800 stall, the best I've got is ~7.7 seconds IIRC.

If I did do a turbo, I would go to the v6 efan(4th gens only), and mount a single turbo in front of the engine between the efan and engine, having to make custom manifolds/downpipe to the turbo, and have an intercooler mounted up front either behind the grill or behind the lower grill(in the bumper). Would also need injectors, tuning(diablo custome tuning....probably Sean again with hemifever), and many other things. I just decided it's not worth the say ~$5000 for me to do it, and hoping it works(as I've never dealt with forced induction before).
