    I was going to start a thread about this same thing until I read this. Anyways like it said 100hp for a budget, my question is if you put a lets say a Vortech supercharger on the same base truck and come up with the same rwhp will the 2 trucks run the same numbers in the 1/4 mile. Reason I ask is a Vortech supercharger gives you about the same as these mods and its 2600 dollars more than these mods, is it worth it.

    If the Vortech made more torque down low, it will be faster. Still should be real close to the same.

    cost and labor?

    the power #'s of this is awesome, but i was wondering how long it took to install the camshaft. the tune is $500 + 20 min install, the exhaust maybe $150. Was the exhaust a turndown or full system. just wondering what the cost was, that all. thanks
