Procharger makes a system for your truck. I think Magnacharger is currently working on a NNBS system.

the system for Magnacharger should already be out and IMO that will be the best out of the box turn key system out there. I have one on my TBSS and if I were able to keep my damn foot out of it the street manners are just like it was when stock. Its the best kit out there and if I were you I would get on performancetrucks.net and talk to LeftCoast32 (Joe) as he is one of the most knowledgeable people when it comes to FI and he can also hook you up with a kickass deal on a maggie unit.

Where do you want your power? Low end or mid-range/top end? Figure out what your intended use will be for so you will receive input that pertains to your situation.

I personally have a ProCharger kit. It works well for my application and provides nice mid range boost when it kicks in & pulls hard all the way to redline from there.

A MagnaCharger, Radix, or Whipple would have been great as well for a daily driver/towing applications. However, none of these companies make a kit for the old L31 as they have been discontinued.

As long as you have an intercooler set-up, you will be fine running up to 9psi without detonation. Generally, speaking of course.

i want to be inthe daily driver mode , i wont be taking her to strips/tracks etc , just want her to have balls and when i say balls i mean that Whine from the s/c , alot of friends got radix's on their NBS's and they have never been so happy . procharger kit is also a nice kit but from what i heard it bleeds ur engine till the last drop , ( aggressive and not recommended for daily use )

i want a Supercharger and i have no idea what to pick , is there anyone out there with a full kit , does magnacharger have a full kit out .. ???

And i was thinking about some Dynatechs to go along with this setup.

Yes you need to do at least something for your transmission :read:

I think you're giving your 4L60E too much credit. Is this a DD?

It sounds like you have a good baseline of roots/twin screw chargers since you have friends with them. At least you know what to expect.

Centrifugals, like ProCharger & Vortech may be a different story. Have you considered a turbo set-up?

lol, true. The Magnacharger owners are like a cult.
Not much love for me at PT.net. Whipples get more respect than ProCharger does. :hmm:

They are all great systems, it all just depends on $$$, application, & availability for your vehicle.
