Before I get started I have done searched and found bits and pieces of info. Im wanting to build a strong n/a motor. Whats the best mods and stuff to buy to get this? I would like to see the 500+hp range at the minimum. Thank you for the help. I might have missed a thread or two when searching so if there is any good threads let me know. I have a 2010 1500 qc with the 5.7L in it.

yea, 500 is a lofty number for boltons...even with a cam/head setup you'll only be pushin close to 400 at the wheels...

The easy wasy or the hard way? Their are no shortcuts for reliable power so i would say build a new motor. But having said that if i were to do it all over again i would just build a car man and leave that truck alone hehe... I mean if money is no problem then doit but if that things not even paid off yet i wouldnt touch the motor...
