We need more info...


What's your budget?
What do you want the truck to do? If your goal is maximum power, you'll want to pull the engine, put a honking big crate motor in, and then do twin turbos.

If your going to be adding more Hp out of your engine make sure your transmission can handle the new power.

Sounds like you're in the market for a supercharger. They're a lot cheaper than a turbo setup, and you can install yourself. It will still add on 100+ HP, but not as much as a turbo.

Procharger makes a good product. You're looking at ~$5k. on thing that you need to be aware of is the fact that the supercharger is powered by the engine directly, therefore putting some additional stress on the internal parts of an engine. If the engine is old, or has very high miles, you may want to replace some internal parts with performance parts. I have a big block in a boat that I want to put one in, but it's so old that I need to replace internal parts first. So, im slowley saving $$$. Good luck.

I cant answer the "what would you do" part. There's a lot of research and eventually money involved. That's a decision that only you can make. With that being said, the more power the better IMHO
