Thread: Chevy Turbo Kit

  1. #1

    Default Chevy Turbo Kit

    Hi guys, I have a 2010 silverado 1500, 5.3l and I'm thinking of installing a turbo kit. But, I thought I'd check here to see if anyone has done an install on a nnbs silverado and how it worked. Any comments/suggestions are appreciated, thanks!

    Welcome to the club, it's great to have you aboard. I don't know about Turbos but I think there are a few on here with Superchargers. Good luck man.

    Anyone I know that has forced induction on a silverado is running a roots style supercharger or a centrifugal supercharger . Now that I think bout it I don't know anyone other than my brothers Audi that is a turbo v8 gasser. But if you can find a kit with a tune it should run like a dream. Minus the boost lag

    haha around here everyone runs forced induction and I guess you could say that's my specialty. I can also thank my father for teaching me everything he knows. He builds some bada$$ motors. But thanks for the compliment
