Monstermaker First thing to check is if youíve got a boost leak, probably one of the rubber elbows.
Google how to build a boost leak tester. Sometimes you can check all the rubber boots and see that itís got a tear, Iíve had that happen right after upping the boost.

Ryan Curry I have the same year truck and everything and since there was good conversation goin I thought I’d ask my question here instead of starting my own thread my truck has been over boosting for awhile and then I changed my map sensor and the truck started to only boost at around 2k rpms and about a week ago it stop boosting altogether for the most part u less I really get in it then it makes about 10lbs I think my wastegate valve in the turbo is stuck what do all of you think.

Solid advice^


If you decide you want to grow, there will be more involved with the trans, so it is a good idea to make a end goal before getting into it.

Lol I broke my input when I went compounds too. I tried to leave my output alone but snapped twice trying to launch. So now that's billet too.

Cummin_get-some Nailed all the basics right there ^^. Just watch a triple disc with a stock input, they like to break. But Trans and Fuel Pressure are big ones here. Once those are covered you have a pretty darn reliable truck. As for other upgrades, how much you wanna spend...

NCC74656 cv joints? our trucks dont have those.

fass lift pump is my first go to - anything to give you more fuel pressure.
get a fuel pressure gage to monitor things as well.
since you have the trans out you should upgrade your planetary gears as the ones from the factory are VERY weak. replace the torque converter with a tripple disk while your at it, the factory one is also very weak. then you should shift kit the valve body so it flows fluid in park, prevents you running on dry clutch packs.

after that you just need to determine if you are going stock power or adding power. that will determine what other upgrades you should get.
