    If you swap a 350 in there with a turbo, you've got a lot more things to upgrade than just the engine. Do you really think the transmission can handle it? And with 35" tires - do you think the axles can handle it??

    NOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooo

    The first thing you need to do .....is leave the engine & tranimssion alone!!!

    Do some research on gearing. CHange the gears and see what you think.

    After that....you can put a trd supercharger on that engine. But - I personally think it'll be a waste of time if you're running 35" tires.

    Buy a fast car.

    It's a truck, it's not suppose to be fast.
