Default Front mount turbo kit for 4th gen ram

I've contacted KB racing, but they don't have the resources available to branch out from the GM market. I'll contact Trick Racing next and see if they are interested in our untapped market. Anyone have any other suggestions? I can't be the only one who would be interested in a turbo kit.

Turbo without being able to crack the tune/maps open?

I think no one wants to deal with the exhaust routing, heat, space, and intake piping required to run a up front turbo kit and i would never run a turbo kit located near the rear. I love turbo's as i dealt with them a few cars I've own, but personally i would run a 2300 roots Magna Charger by Magnuson on my Ram and yes the 2012 ECU rolling encryption has been accessed per DiabloSports.

Don't tell all of the GM guys that. Lots and lots of guys running 10's with off the shelf turbo kits.

What are you talking about? These torque converters are rock solid and bullet proof. Surely the rest of it is too.

oh, wait...
