Here is my turbo build. It's my 2007 Chevy Silverado. We decided to build this one my factory 5.3 was cratered due to a failed new and "improved" comp 918 valvespring. This was all fabricated by my best friend Tyler Scruggs (nitrous injected) and it really turned out awesome...The frame is very filthy in most of the pictures but it has since been cleaned :D

The log. Made of 2.5" stainless and an SDPC header flange

The setup consists of
5.3 motor
02 LS6 cam ground with a 112LSA
LS6 yellow valve springs
Head studs
stock 706 heads
Ebay turbo
3"D.P. to 4" exhaust with 4" dynomax bullet
Meth Kit

I'd really like to run an 11.99 with this truck. I think I'll need bigger injectors to get there though. The stockers on this truck are 35# and it has a bigger fuel pump so it will still be a runner.

Here's a quick rev

Looks good man. Only thing I would have done different is angle the pass side exhaust into the log to help with back pressure.
