I dont know alot about things on the forum cause I was a SRT 4... Guy before I got my ram. But If you do A Turbo do a rear mount on the exhaust. YeaH YOULL HAVE TO RUN YOUR LINES THE WHOLE LENGHT OF YOUR TRUCK. But its a lot better then you having it in the engine compartment. You will have a bit of delay but not that bad. And as far as a supercharger..... thats not my area but I know kenny belle makes a great on for Nova's.lol

Oh and for the tranny You would really want to beef it up alittle bit. I put a turbo on a buddies "Gay mans Cheverlot". And I told him that the tranny wont going to be able to hold the HP. And now he's on his 2 trans in the last month. Maybe one day he'll listen or GMC will make a better trans. It will probably be the first one.lol

Awesome post strang3majik , great info right on. I;m a Turbo Fan, but I wouldn't know the different type of supercharger.

Thanks for the Info

for street ability i would think an sc'd ram would be a better preference then a turbo..we need that power early... I raced a paxton scharged rc ram awhile back, that must have been the only mod (I tried to look for him after the race to find out) he had because i handily beat him (1/4 at Infineon)

as far as i know, a supercharger is harder on the engine as it is constantly running with the engine, where as the turbo wont spool up until a certain pressure is met. if it a 100% toy, supercharger...any kind of an everyday driver i think turbo the better option...not as much punch but not as hard on the engine
