how much boost can these engines handle stock? like i said i'm not looking for
much just a little extra pick up.
Will i have to change the injectors still even going with minimum boost?
also does the turbo need to be installed on the exhaust manifold or could it be installed farther back on the exhaust system?
any help would be great...
also please dont send me looking for another thread that might have my answers
In reference to the above, may I ask why?
Yer expecting others
to do that work for you? Or worse, type in the same
answers they typed in already - in some cases more
You DO realize what that connotes?
For you, we present this:
IRONS1N nailed it. You really want an S/C not a turbo ...
What about a nice, inexpensive Roushcharger with or without an I/C? Lots of good deals on these.
OR - perhaps all you really need is a custom flash programmer, a gearing change and a full LT/high-flow/x-pipe/ exhaust system...
BTW - how many miles on the truck? If yer up there, it may actually be hazardous to boost it....
