    did you already see the sts kit? http://www.ststurbo.com/gm_trucks

    you could use their ideas and just sort of change them to suit you. from what i understand its not that hard you just have to be able to tune it correctly and make sure your system is matched well to the truck. just google it and you may find some more ideas.

    good luck,

    Is there anybody out there that has a NBS underhood turbo kit? I really dont like the idea of sticking it under the truck.

    Does anyone know if Livernois/Detroit Speedworks is still making the front mount turbo kits? I saw one on an Escalade and another on a Silverado. I think the Escalade was running high 12's
