Default 2003 Ram Hemi turbo????

I have a friend that has a 2003 Ram HEMI... He is looking around to see if there is a turbo kit for his truck. I was wondering if there is a kit out there for the 2003... Thanks for the help....

I am an STS dealer. Give me his number and I'll give him a call.

If you turbo'd a hemi, and got approx 400 some odd RWHP, would the 4x4 and tranny be able to take that? would you run into any major problems?

I have the SRT killer super charger from gs motorsports. Thats the best way to go. I have a friend with the STS and he has quite a bit of lag because of where the turbo mounted under the truck

How much rwhp are you makin avoid? Got the dyno's to prove it?

I make 450rwhp.

There is no lag if it is set up right. Mine is set up right, I'm the dealer for the entire northeast and Canada.

Don't know if the tranny and stuff will hold up in an all out hole shot, but the guys that run 150shots of nos do.

From a little roll, 10-15mph, this school bus feels like a 11 second race car.

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
