Oh yeah! There are plenty of them out now! You can go with a procharger, the GSM kit but don't use their piggyback controller, tune it with the diablo instead. ASM also makes a nice setup!

The sky is the limit!

For the immediate future SCT is the only tuning out but Diablos working on it. Most of the successfuly boosted stock bottom end trucks are using the SVS turbo kit. Seems to be easier on trannies too.

Thanks everyone, yea i was wondering which would be better. I just dont hear about turbos on larger engines much, with the exception of supercars. I have the best wife in the world, she will let me do anything to my truck. So i just need to find something as reasonably priced as possible. Which may be asking for alot. I will keep everyone updated on the progress.

Problem here is 03s. The tuning market kind of left them behind, at least for now.

Really? You would think that that year would be prime for mods, considering it doesnt have the MDS crap holding the engine back. Oh well....

Most supercharger kits come with everything needed to install.
