The consensus for putting a turbo on typically ended up as its more trouble than its worth, your best off spending the money on a supercharger. Im definatly not saying it isnt possible though. I would be intrested in seeing what you find out.
as of right now the only way i am putting a supercharger on my truck is if i totally f*#k up the turbo kit. i know i can do everything except for the headers, which are going to be custom made for me. so when i do screw it up i will put a supercharger on and i will have spent double the money and learned the hard way just like i usually do. lol
its a poweraid tb spacer. with the spacer on there it sticks out too far and it hits the fan shroud and fan. i mean its not even close. without cutting up the stock intake, it wont even fit in there. i have half of the intake cut off right now to try to mold a flat peice of plastic over the hole but so far, not good. just a temperary fix till ii get my fipk, which i will still have to modify, i was told.
i dont really see the big deal about the turbo being too hard.

plus turbos are way kool, i say do it!:waytogo:
im not really sure what your question was but heres a list of what you need off the top of my head.
braided steel line for oil in and oil return
15' of hose for vaccum and a bunch of T fittings
thats really about it, you just have to find a way to get more fuel in there since your gonna have a lot more air:read:
Okay, here's the deal:
I'm sure like most, you too are sick of the constant and chronic "what exhaust" or "what sounds best" or "(insert exhaust question here)"
So, here's what I am thinking:
explain exhaust theory and practicality (velocity, backpressure, flow, etc),
I just finished putting the new tbi on my 91 chevy silverado 1500 5.7 v8 350 and now it won't start. It turns over like it's wanting to start. It's been sitting waiting for a new tbi for about 3 wks and finally got the new one in a few days ago. Not sure what next. Sensors are all OK, no fuel...
03 1500hd. Had a lifter tap, 200xxx.
Bought a BTR cam kit, new oil pump, lifter, ext, mainly for the miles not preformace.
Anywho, broke it down and pulled the cam out untill the second bearing and she was stuck. Gently turned and moved in and out until I heard the dreadful clatter...
