    Did you mean 4.8L 2007? 4.3L was the V6 and 4.8L is the V8. Just so we're on the same page. Thanks

    Default Turbos are hot

    Turbos can help mileage in an application that has an undersized engine. So instead of putting a V8 in a truck, go with a V6 and add the turbo. When you keep your boot out of it, the truck will get V6 mileage, when you tromp on it you get V8 power/mileage. My problem is that I'm a member of the "Knights of the Loud Pedal" and I love to stick the old boot to those turbos.
    There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:

    I couldn't find one either so I would think your into possibly custom fitting which ever suits you fancy. Finding closest fit for under the hood somewhere.
    Same when I put 4 link in a 1/2 ton p/u. Speedshop guys looked at me like I was drinking my own bath water. Ended up using a 70 Chevelle set up underneath it.
    Unless someone knows more sorry.

    Has the engine changed from '03 to '07? Does anyone know?
    I found a powerdyne for the 4.3 for the '03 year engine. I honestly can't imagine that the engine changed too much within that time frame.

    For Turbo systems heres a good start. http://www.ststurbo.com/home
    If your truck is street driven these guys have had good success. I've driven a Tacoma with the set-up (wicked fast) and seen a lot of their products run, they have a shop not far from the racetrack in Kennedale, Tx. and usually a few of their vehicles show up at the track on weekends.
    For Off-Road aplications I'm not convinced they'll work because of the mounting place.

    I was wondering that myself it appears to be same. But product listings for 4.3 trucks are far and few between. Probably because of the warranty stuff...
    They changed 5L to 4.8L and 5.7L to 5.3L but 4.3L was left as is.

    Im pretty sure it hasnt changed but the setup from that link is for a s10 so if it is the same engine, it still might be a different configuration, battery box, air box etc.. right? im just thinking out loud..

    You're probably right, but those are easy to remedy. If the accessories are situated differently (ie alt, AC, PS pump) then the bracket provided in that kit won't do you much good.
