    It is all personal preference once you do the research. Compare the cost of $ vs. the amount of horsepower increase and what every kit comes with. I would look for kit similar to the SLP kit like this one no matter what you decide.

    very true!

    and 2tone04, you are right about the drivetrain upgrades. many ppl want to just throw on more power addons, but never spend the cash to upgrade the rest of their vehicle's components to handle that extra power. thats why i recommended to go with light boost, because most trucks will be able to handle about 25% increase in power without upgrading the driveline.

    whether you go sc or turbo, you're gonna want to research all the upgrades that are going to go along with that. otherwise you'll be risking more costs in the future to replace those broken components...but that goes back to personal preference. you need to sit down and list out what you want to get out of this upgrade, and then choose the options that will fit your budget and do the job for you.

    Beside, most turbo kits that i have seen cost near or more than a supercharger kit and give the same or less HP. Go with a supercharger. I plan to do that on almost the same truck.
    S/c take more power to run you end up with more power but what could you have had 12psi boost between turbo and s/c does not make equal power you have to give some to get some with s/c but they also dont create a huge heat source like a turbo either way a innercooler is the best idea when compressing intake I looked at an ATI procharger for my truck 5,000 dollars but being a mudder i think thats the best way to go for me
