I'm open for all suggestion and comment that will help me achieve my goal. I would like to know who would you recommen to do the job.

500whp for 5k is going to be tough, especially with an awd. if you shop smart and buy stuff used you could probably come close. (assuming you do your own work).

I was in your shoes about 3 months ago... I went with the Radix. I wouldn't want to drive without one now. Brings out a new beast in the truck.

 

This was my first engine upgrade I have ever done to anything. It's a very simple kit and directions are ok.. (was missing something about pluggin in a fuse). You can find that on the forum somewhere.

 

The first time you put your foot to the gas.. you'll know.. money well spent...

I'd say at the crank, plausible. At the wheels, nearly impossible unless you found someone nearly giving stuff away. I guess you could add a few things then do a 150 shot. That may get you close. Assuming a 20% loss to the wheels, that is.

i would go with a head and cam setup along with a shift kit, good tune and a intake swap over to the 90mm tb, and a 3000 stall. and then go with some n2o

Funny thing everyone pushes the radix but in my Z with a 5.3 in it I beat a radix fed SSS with us both having basically the same mods but with me having a 150 shot for that race. Nitrous owns the street IMO.

well for around 5 grand the shop i goto in fl he can have the heads ported and polished new roller rockers and a mild hydraulic cam and some domed pistons to up the compression those #s are very reachable..... i dont see why most go with the quick supercharger or turbo for around 5 grand when all you get at best is round 130whp and i can take same 5 grand redo the engine and internals and get an increase of 275 or more whp
