Alright guys I'm at a cross roads here, trying to decide what route to go with my truck. right now my truck still has the stock trans, so option 1 and 2 are on with the stocker for now, option 3 is keep the truck how it is and build the trans.

Option 1- SDP twins. Kit is $3,550 I assume I'll have another $500 or so in "contingencies" so lets call it $4,000. twins on a stock tranny for now

Option 2- what I'll call "maximize the stock charger" Intake, full EGR delete(only blocked now) and the batmoWheel. I'm figuring this option is around $1,000

Option 3- built trans, no more go fast for now.

The truck is my daily driver, with very occasional use to tow. I need the truck to maintain its reliability.

PowerMax in Salem, Ohio. There weren't any local options back then. I think Caleb is gonna be getting into building them soon however.

ah I always forget about Big dipper being down in Md. I travel to DC all the time for work.

I might check with Caleb first. He is a stand up dude and came to my garage and got me out of a bind last year and didn't even want to charge me.

o ya forgot- I already have the egr blocked, and air dog 165, and Robs dsp-5 tuning.

Doing twins or modding the stock before upgrading the trans is like wiping before your poop...it makes no sense.

Trans, no question.
George is 10 min from me in Baltimore. I will pick up anyone from the forum that is gettin their trans built by George, and take them out for a beer while they wait.
My girl works at the Tilted Kilt ;) so we get special treatment :D
