Im looking to start a project... but i dont just want to buy a kit I sorta wanna piece together everything I need to turbo my truck myself hopefully saving some money in the long run and having a more unique set up but its not real easy to find anything other than kits. Anyone have any advice on where to get part?? more specificly a turbo manifold cant find them anywhere....

thanks

check with a machine shop or welder. you will also need to give them your truck for a while too. that way they can make sure it fits properly

Big power, turbo! Great choice! Anxious to know the size turbo, maybe twin 67's! Hehe

To keep it easy you could do a "sts style" setup if there is space available for all the tubing and hoses. I haven't given it a look to see it that would even be possible.
