I thought this could be an interesting topic just to show what everyone wants for their trucks. There never is an end to it, just a lack of time and money but mostly money. Here is mine...


Things i'm actually going to do this year (i think)
-hx35 turbo
-sdx 5x14 injectors
-low pressure piston pump
-new front leaf springs to get rid of that sag

Id also like to get new rocker panels and a box but they are on the back burner as well as a borgeson steering shaft.

Soon . . . .

- A more secure driver's seat as compared to stock.
- A real roll-bar in the cab.
- Perhaps a 5-point seat belt. Something better than the original minimum.
- A driveshaft safety loop.

I wouldn't recommend an HX35 on an intercooled truck, unless you are getting it for next to nothing. An HX35 is barely bigger than the stock intercooled H1C, and with the 5X.014's your planning on getting, you won't be able to cool them. I'd go straight to a Super HX40, or an S300. :thumbsup:

My list is mostly cosmetic stuff, I'm pretty content with 160hp. :doh:

Topper for the bed
Better running boards
Rams Head for the hood
New paint job
Goerend converter
Low pressure piston lift pump
Find a way to hook up my factory tach to my truck

I'd be surprised if I was able to get/afford any of it to be honest. But a man can dream can't he? :D

I dont have money for a better turbo. i still have stock exhaust. right now im not sure if im getting 5x12 or 5x14's so i figured id dream big. i still cant hit 1100º pre turbo and 25 pounds of boost.
