If only there was a guy that was really good with marketing. And really reached out to the forums and was really helpful.

Do the AC lines need to be bent like the previous gen trucks? And is the coolant tank going to work in it's stock location?

each year has slightly different ac lines.
Early 2014 has a huge silver filter? In its line. Right in the way.
2015 we looked at does not have that butbthe line is still in the way.
Both require either moving over or building a new line.
I’ve done both year model here and didn’t have to build a new hose.
The current 2018 is a 1234a set up on the lines.
Again some minor moving over was needed to clear all the lines.

Tank location. We moved ours slightly forward with some customer
relocations brackets supplies in the kit.
Could leave it alone. But wanted to add a little more move for those top tank hoses.

Kit it comes with a turbo blanket, and one could easily wrap the tank with thermal
sleeve if they wanted.
I have not tested the other tank option we offer on this truck yet.

Hey Rick what are the pipe sizes? Dp, crossover and turbo size? I'm considering jumping ship after the Summer if the AC season is good. I'm very happy with the Whipple but I'm 5.3 and engines and exhaust and other related stuff is so expensive I could spend 20k with the blower. Turbo's make killer power even with a small engine (preaching to the choir right lol) and since our resident mod 03Sierraslt is so happy after the blower setup he had that's a pretty strong recommendation. I am thinking I want about 750-800 to the tire to justify the switch. To do that with the blower it's gonna take a lot. If I do this I'm willing to drop the coin on a premium setup like yours. Thanks!

DO IT! You’ll make more power with less boost, and it’s a blast to drive. My setup has worked great so far and Tricks kits are complete. All my stuff is wrapped and I don’t notice any notable difference in underhood temps, my LT’s I had before put off some heat.

Yeah the more I look at the whole picture I'm getting convinced that it's going to work the best for the long term. Besides I can get a decent price out of my blower setup and that will help fund it. There is a lot to think about before or during the switch though. Cam, fuel ,converter and how long the trans will live. Don't know if an 8 speed works on a 14 and a 6 spd built is spendy. Hate to give up the tight gearing by going 4 spd on my daily.

6 speeds feels like way to many after driving mine for a few weeks, only thing id miss would be the final drive ratio going to a 4l80

the kit comes with a 3” down pipe and the cross over is 2.25. We pretty much use that size on all these kits.
Set up For the 76/75 turbos that are popular across all turbo mfg’s.
They have made 800hp to the ground on high boost and e85.
I rate them I. The 700hp range on gas.
Really comes down to tuning, gearing, convertor,boost level
and tuning.
Let me know if you need anything else. 👍🏻

Thanks Rick! I'm quite a ways out but when the time comes I'll be in touch. Can't really see going with anyone else. Your reputation...
