Welcome and good luck the build! You will have no regrets going with the single 76MM Turbo. Looking forward to reading up on yours and your wife's progress with this build.

Appreciate the advice, i will look into this. The transmission is always the weak point in
builds, so any little thing to help it last would be nice.

Thanks! looks like your running exactly what she wanted to run. How much boost do you run for street trim? And did you install a meth/water injection?

On the street currently running about 7 lbs on Stock Block and Stock Tranny. Not a daily driver however so I'm not beating on her day in and day out with the stock set up on 7lbs. No water/meth just a big ol intercooler supplied by Stage 6 with the Turbo kit they installed for me. I believe they sell that intercooler on it's own if you were interested just hit up Harrison. Not a lot of guys on here running water/meth and off the top of my head the only guys who are I believe are all supercharged Jeeps. A lot of great people on the forum so any questions you have just ask away and they will be answered though it looks like you are on the right track already!!

Awesome! Thanks for the info. So far everyone has been great i am very impressed with the crowd. even talked to the wife about possibly trading mine in for a jeep haha. Who knows. The wife doesnt beat the snot out of the car like i would as a daily driver so i am hoping the trans can last the few trips at the track for her.

We will be adding meth purely as a safty setup for the pistons. Really helps cool everything internally and cleans everything up. I dont tune for it to gain maximum benefit, just more of a way to protect everything a little bit. Even though i picked up about 60-70whp purely by adding it without a tune.

haha do you know how tempting that is? the fact alone i can not drive my car in the winter and the constant battle for traction. That would all be gone.

But we will take it one step at a time. At least i have one to play with now... we will see what the future holds

Also, what do they charge for HID installation?
We've never smoked any headlights. We open them up, paint the insides and reseal...plus do any other cool stuff you want.

Why does this not surprise me with you? I thought you were leaving it stock-ish? You're worse than me, LOL.

Loving it is an understatement. She has been talking about this truck for over 3 years now. Never thought she was going to actually own one. Now that she does she is finally getting into "modding"

She was asking what a turbo/supercharger would do for her times and i told her she might be able to run mid to high 11's... She wasnt happy and informed me she wants to run 9's haha... looks like i might have to see if John wants to trade for a stocker. haha
