Is that hp at the crank or rwhp? IMO I don't see making 460+rwhp with that kit on a 5.3 but it might but with a 6.0. How much is the kit?

Yeah its kinda pricy. Correct it is rated at Crank HP for the kit.

You could just skip the top end kit and get a custom turbo kit for $2500 or so non intercooled from like Kbracing. You will need a little more funds though for the supporting mods.

Some guys will say just put that money towards a 6.0 and swap engines.

It's not unheard of to get a 5.3 into the low 12's with a good combo.

Idk what you are after but good luck with everything.

Ya but eventually have to update the topend. Already put 5g into the 5.3 swap so stay wit this. An if I ever decide to use no2 I'm sure the top items will handle it. Thanx for info though

At the bottom of the first link, it says it adds 50-75 horsepower. That's the number I'm going to believe....
