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.
