    Hello everyone
    This is my first post and i am a newby with turbos so i thought i would try and get some opinions of what i am planning to do. Sorry in advance if my terminology is not correct. So i need more power. My truck has 100k on it totally stock accept intake. Here me out before you get afer me too bad. Lol So looking at buying t3/t4 universal turbo kit on ebay hold on now and then later on upgrading my turbo. I am on a tight budget. Two kids I want to mount the turbo under my cab for ease and expense. I here turbo can be a little laggy but i am not building a rocket are my thoughts. Just want to feel some boost. :) for more fuel i am planning on an fmu 12:1 more more fuel on boost. This would also have an intercooler. Also planning on installing gauge kit with boost afr and oil pressure. If you stuck with me this far maybe hang around a bit longer and give me your thoughts. Any advise good or bad will be apreaciated and taken into great consideration. Thanks hope to here some good stuff soon

    Welcome! A universal kit would make me nervios, hope you do a lot of homework before pulling the trigger.

    Id go with a supercharger instead. More reliable than a universal turbo kit and more power available throughout the entire RPM range. Blowers are simply more practical and safer IMO unless you get a more advanced turbo setup designed for your truck and not a universal one.

    Better to save up and do it right just the once, doing it wrong could end up costing you your truck when dealing with boost

    That is a great thought thankyou very much for the reply. I am just saving up now so i will need to do some more research before pulling the trigger on s/c or turbo. Thanks again
