but making yourself start is the worst part. the first real modification i did to anything on my truck was clearing the headlights. even that seemed scary at the time i was like "you mean i have to cut open my headlights & re-seal them with a tube of silicon?!?! "

2 years later, i've drilled holes in my dash, disabled systems with a resistor & e-tape, even dropped in an engine that wasn't "supposed" to be mated to my transmission. i'm fixing to redo my CAI (eventually involving some custom ducting) and a few other mods as well. once you start, it won't bother you at all
then again, i ain't got a warranty to contend with... oh well


sorry to GTA

Thought I would jump in, no problem with build pics, I will take it as we go. As for the supercharger install, we did a truck program with Joe Gibbs in 2005 and have done multiple installs. We also have built some stroker motors etc in house. My shop is not a normal dealership shop. We are going to do a before and after dyno on the car also to check everything out.
