Default Turbo for a 4.7?

HAs anyone ever heard of a company making these? i wanted to make my ram one of a kind. theres some other kid in town with a truck like mine but i wanted to make mine stand out and be more peppy then his. so i decide what about a turbo?
I know the price ranges but has anyone heard of anything?

I have never seen or heard of a "kit" per-se, but with the 'net, enough research and knowledge, any vehicle can be turboed...

Oh, and the right kind of cash. I have personally turboed 3, A Lexus LS400, a 06 Honda Civic Si, and a Lexus SC300. It can be done, plenty of room in the Ram engine bay too.

Umm, well, that depends on what kind of application you are looking for. But just google

This thread has ALOT of good turbo info...its long and its for a Lexus LS400, but it is still converting a non turbo engine to turbo, the fundamentals are the same:

if your not planning on doing the work, call up a few performance shops and tell them what your wanting to do and see about getting a quote and find out what product they are going to use or if they are fabbing up one

There's alot to turbocharging and engine and getting them tuned right as well (it's way over my head). A turbo'd 4.7L would be wicked though! Like the others posted, you would need to do alot of research and reading, and talking with performance shops.

come one lets get some turbo charged 4.7's out there! I'm interested! It's that or sell my truck and buy the HEMI or Cummins. My only issue with the STS setup is that it mounts too low in line with your exhaust. Seems like it could pose a problem if you drove through water.
