Any mods currently on your truck? Superchargers are good choice, but personally i'd rather keep it naturally aspirated and work on the internals like cam/heads/pistons ect... If you still want more power, a supercharger is always still available...
Other option is to pick up a GM performance crate motor for almost the same price as the supercharger...

How many miles on your truck? You don't want to add a supercharger to a engine with high miles. Also what motor do you have?

I'm like HotRod, I like head work and cams. If you have a 4.8 or 5.3 you can bore and stroke them to a 6.3 (383).:cool:

Can't tell you a price for boring the block. Find a machine shop that has experiance with the new LS type engine blocks and they should be able to give you a price. Your 5.3 has a 96mm bore, you can bore it to 99mm and it would be a 5.7. Add a 4" stroker crank with the 99mm bore and you have a 6.3 (383). Add some larger valves, pocket porting,gasket port match the intake and exhaust ports, mild cam and you have a nice dependable engine with good torque for daily driving.

Hey guy's how hard would it be to put a 6.6 liter duramax engine in a 1500 and would this even work i been thinking about doin this in the future way down the road. I know i would have to add bigger rearend and everything else but would this even be worth it?

Its cheaper to trade your truck for a duramax. All the work to be done would cost more than a new duramax.

yeah i actually plan on trading my truck for one in a few years or maybe sooner. I might just pay it off and like a year later trade it in for a new 2500hd cause i want a 6.6 liter duramax since i have never owned a diesel before!

I've never seen anyone mod a vehicle and come out "ahead" financially. You may save a lot doing it yourself if you have the time/tools/facilities. Silveradotrailblazer was right that you'd be better off trading up. A s/c 1500 would be badass though. My buddy had a 2500 with a Banks aftermarket kit with 3 boost settings. Can you say haul a$$? You should be able to find something 4-5 yrs old like that under $20k especially with everyone downsizing right now.

yeah i only had my truck for 2 1/2 years and i only owe $10,000k on it and bought it new in 2008 for $32,000k so i have done good for this being only my second truck and first new one! I just would rather have a diesel compared to a gas burner now a diesel theres really no way to rag it out driving its made to be worked hard when a 1500 on the other hand can really get messed up driving. My buddy has a 06 2500hd and i like it allot he has a chip intake and exhaust and it's lifted 6 inches with 37's and it runs as it did stock or better being a gas burner me lifting it and all made it slower but i havent really added any motor work or mods but i want a 2011 silverado whenever i get this one paid off so my credit is good enough to buy one on my own lol!!
