Though optional, need to take in account of the expense of doing a 6.1 intake manifold, which is next up for me. Its part of the build Im envisioning anyways towards getting boost. Turbo or centrifugal boost on a plastic intake manifold is not exactly the best combination imho.. figure it can open up other cai options also while being n/a.

here you go boss...initial tuning and dyno. It was bought as a 2009 RCSB 4wd. Mike had since then installed 4.10 gearing, oem R/T 2600 stall, and made it to an awd by utilizing a grand cherokee srt8 transfer case. First this isnt a store bought water/air cooled TT setup. He designed, built, and installed this humbly in his garage over the winter. Purpose overly built in future plans of built internals to double the power on this dyno. As you can see its making good power only at 4600 rpms, thats a turbo for you. We are on the initial planning stages for a single setup for mine. The good news is that he likes to race So we can possibly be seeing a few gen 4 trucks in the low low 12s this spring. Who knows, with more tuning, DRs with AWD regardless its definitely going to be exciting to see everybodys boost builds this spring!!

Like I said before...the Maggie is the only bolt on s/c currently sold for Gen IVs. The Procharger link is for Gen IIIs. I called ATI and the Gen IV kit will be released "soon" is all they would say.

A single 67mm turbo would be awesome Sonny.
