Its pretty much the same, and once you get a nelson it won't matter. I dont even know if they are swapable.


And PLEASE...Don't Type Like This Its Really Annoying :D

the 01's have a different cam then the 00 models i believe so i wouldnt think it would help you, if anything i would think it would be worse.

just get a PCM tune and then have it updated later for the blower.

The only reason i was asking is because, Nelson charges the same to tune a 99 and 00, but more for a 01 and 02, then more on a 03 and 04. I know that a 99 would gain from switching to a 01 model

if you were to swap years like that i would think it would not be beneficial at all. since your putting in a PCM that isnt tuned for the mods on that truck. you probably end up running rich.

I will post up results, and thanks for the help :shake:

after you get your tune and and blower installed make sure to check your KR reading for any detonation. if its bad enough you'll be able to hear it ping audiblely(sp?).

Well I have talked to Allen at nelson tuning and have decided that after I install my supercharger I am going to take the truck to his shop for the best tune on the dyno and on the street

they came pre-gapped for me... hell its been so long, i cant even remember what they were gapped at... lol.

i would suggest any long tube header set up. it will help your motor breathe to fully help the blower. and a trans go kit would be good, ive never heard anything bad about them. even though i still have yet to install mine, so i cant give you any words of wisdom on installation and performance. :crazy:
