    I was wondering if anyone has installed a turbo on a 2.7? If so, how did it affect performance and mileage? Thanks

    That is a SUPER open ended question to throw out- It's worth reading thru the other threads about forced induction before you posted this up. What application are you thinking for your truck: Off road, Street, Hi-Performance?? What other mods have you done already, and what are you considering in conjunction with the turbo?

    Your performance will increase- how much depends on which kit you get and how much other work you do with your engine and tuning.
    Your mileage will most likely hover nearly the same, depending on your driving style. If you enjoy the new found power-It'll go down. Depending on your tune- It'll change. If you just drive normally, it'll prolly go up a bit.
