The kits from STS did have some lag. They scrogged up the wastegate to cause the slow spool. It's the wastegate causing the slow spool, not the turbo location. If you get hooked up with kenihemi, he'll fit you with the necessary stuff to make it work right. My 4x4 QC weighed in at 5960# two weeks ago. I have a video link of me doing 0 to 60 in 6 seconds with only 5.5 psi. I have a gtech SS that showed a 6.1 0 to 60 to back up my video. I also have a dyno graph of 450rwhp and 525rwtq at 9psi. The turbo will get the job done if it's setup right.
The first thing if everything is write with the mods for stage 3 I will be close to 600hp. After doing the s/c I had real bad wheel hop and had verry bad E/Ts. this week end I'm putting a
5 link with coil overs rear.After that I will take the truck to Colvins auto in Austin and get the dino done .I'll be sure to post. After that it's Texas motor speedway will post that also. My best friend has a SRT10. 2 droor short bed 6 speed. I've waxed him 4 out of 6 times. p/s You also have to change the raer to a dana 60 with 4:56 gears. If you go 450-500 hp the rear will fail big time!! Iknow the hard way
keep your friends close and your enemies closer
