    whether you want more info on mine or you save it for reference when you get to building yours, here is the thread on the build as well as the thread on the for sale post so you can see the list of parts.

    Was actually found on the forum and it was listed on Craigslist. I went to ~4 dealership asking way to much and giving me peanuts for my 2019.

    Bought the gen 1 private party and sold my 2019 via truecar.

    Thank you sir! Appreciate it. I'll check out your thread and parts list. Might be a bit of a unicorn but I might have to keep an eye out for something like Wampa mentioned. If I can find a 2014 in good shape for ~$30k I think my wife would be more open to that :gr_grin::gr_grin::gr_grin::gr_grin::gr_grin:!!!!

    Thanks for the input! I'll keep an eye out (already lurking Marketplace and CL). There seem to be a lot of people on these forums located in TX so fingers crossed.

    Turbo upgrades are not a safe upgrade for a Gen 2 with a stock bottom end.

    I mean. You’re wrong. But whatever.

    Wrong as usual. The Gen 2 bottom end is good for well over 600WHP. Stop posting misinformation.

    Full race has done 510whp/700wtq with small EFR turbo's. The stock bottom end is stout. Torque is what breaks shit, and 700ftlbs is simply impressive.

    Fake news. As always. 600 crank is really the upper safe limit. We have seen this since 2017 when Hennessey started putting upgraded turbos on these trucks. They don't do that anymore. Too many bottom end failures.
