    TRUCKS did this a few years ago, they bolted one on a 4.8 reg cab shortbox 2wd and they even said they couldnt believe that without any other upgrades other then CAI and exhaust how much it put out, and that they had a hard time believing that it was actually a 4.8, they also claimed the economy was to stay the same.

    Maggies are always a fun mod. Nothing like the sound of a whining supercharger.

    I would love one but they don't make it for the 8.1L. Only a paxton Novi 1200 is available for me. They say Ken Belle has one but the web site has no info on it. I'm so jealous.
