Also a turbo car. The main reason is the tuners on OEM turbo equipped vehicles is that they allow for higher boost levels before they allow the waste gate to open. More boost allows for more power, but beware, also higher stress levels.

Yes on a diesel u see a conciderable gain compared to gas because of the boost and also because the more fuel you add and longer the more power your gonna have of course also raising the boost pressure makes a difference also

Any reason you're going with a SC instead of a turbo?

Easy, all inclusive kits with no fab work.
I'm about to build another twin turbo diesel drag truck...that'll be all the fabbing I need.

Haha I see that makes for an easy choice then. Wasn't sure if you were more of a fan of the SC or the turbo based on how they act or whatnot. Either way good luck with the install once you get to it. Cant wait to see how it turns out.

WHAT!?!?! 90 Days!!! I know that it was asked earlier in this forum, how do you plan on tuning? I only have 8,000 miles on my ram and cannot toss my warranty in the trash can just yet. But I would like to pic up a programmer if I have the opportunity to buy one that will be used for my future mods.

Screw a warranty...have some fun.
Mine is null and void with under 3000 miles on the clock.
Whatever warranty survived the suspension install I highly doubt survived the headers and exhaust and the rest of the crap. If I have any electrical system warranty the stereo should kill that. lol
