Turbo

Recommended Posts

Well ordered my Trick stage 3 kit today. Should be here at the beginning of the month I hope. Going with an oil less turbo. Hoping to be around 550 to the tires...for stage 1.

Nice. Better start thinking about the trans really soon. My 60e barely lasted 500 miles on my 450 awhp magnacharged single cab. With more weight, and more power I can only imagine lol.

Take it easy and it probably will. I'd have a nice converter spec'd and built for your setup at the same time as the 80e swap.

Nah, that stock trans is junk lol. After my 80e swap, the truck literally felt so much more solid. I didn't cringe on the 1-2 shift ever again haha.

Where did you crossmenber from? I haven't done a whole bunch of research on it yet.

 

I used some 1/4" diamond plate steel. Folded it diamond plate down and made a tab and just welded it onto the back of the stock member. Have me about 3 extra inches then just measured out and drilled the two holes in it. Ended up working great without hacking up the stock cross member imo.
