Keep in mind that turbocharger installs are usually harder than a supercharger install. My preference does go towards turbochargers, but hearing a Whipple/Kenne Bell screaming on a Terminator makes me smile.

basicly just for show boating around town and MAYBE for more torque off roading. so im guessing a super would be best for that.


this is what im considering doing to my truck, once i buy a truck..

get some dual thrush tubes
super/turbo
3in lift, more or less.
good offroad tires
nice push bar upfront.
tool box in the bed ofcourse.
MAYBE skid plates if i really feel it.

i would LOVE to have a nice, tough truck that can take a beating, look nice around town, sound amazing. ect.

I have been putting my desk together for like 4 hours now, and when I went to put the last piece on, the particleboard just disentigrated. Whoever designed this thing never thought about how having two small screws 1/2" deep might not be enough to support the thing during construction.

So... What do I do now? There is no returning the desk, it was a special order item, and it would take a few more hours to get apart again. Maybe if I drilled bolts all the way through the panel, it'd stay together, but I am still really worried about the side giving out completely.

Hmm.. Okay then. I'll need to put some washers or something so it doesn't rip the board any worse. Should I put something in the holes? I was thinking of filling them in with epoxy so it won't just flake apart.

That wouldn't work on this desk. It's way too complicated. Three sides of it need to line up with other panels.

That would be cool.

The 5.4 has enough torques to turn a big supercharger and is the easiest to fit. A big turbo would also be nice but your gonna get lag. Once she spools up though your churning! But you will need to pipe from exhaust to turbo, air intake to intercooler to turbo... lots of piping and it's a bigger job.

You will need an engine ECU remap or adjust the fuel/air ratio to compensate for the extra air your forcing into the cylinders too.

Also make sure your gearbox can handle the extra torque.

I'll be surely to look into the tranny when i get around to getting a truck. and i know a few people that could help me do the piping in there own shop so i wouldnt need to pay a regular shop to do it.

just the sound of a turbo whistling.... makes it so much more appealing lol
