1900's efficiency is just right for a 6.0. My 5.3 is an animal now, I just picked it up yesterday from Mayhem, cam, injectors, throttle body and tune and I'm over 500 rwhp...

Bryan, short of selling that new truck and buying a diesel, adding a positive displacement blower is the best thing you can do for that tow rig. Will it tow as well as a diesel even with a PDB? No, but it will tow safely due to the chassis, suspension, brakes, and steering. Keep boost low, tune conservative and you will enjoy miles of smiles. The modified roots design (aka Magnuson) has the best off idle response of all PDB's available for your truck in a packaged deal so that would be my choice.

Damn, that's awesome. Is it 2wd?
What injectors did you get or did they come with the SCer?
I'm heading over to your thread now.

Used to love nailing it with my turbo truck at 40 in auto track although I'm sure it was not that easy on it lol. Fun as hell though!

Its the most fun in the rain! I can 4x4 drift it like a boss with the rear sway bar. Lol.

When I launch it people freak out now, i think their heart is hitting the back of their rib cage. Haha. It hooks up like no other then blows the tires off at the top of second right before the shift. I hope it lasts, I'm sure I'll find out.

What are your torque numbers. Hp is ok but you need torque for pulling. Im also interested in a boosted 2500 but dont want to deal with a diesel.

Not to hijack but since he's PD got to be over 400 @2500 and on up from there considerably probably mid high 400's. Mine with stock cam was 420-440+ depending on tune @25-2600 and he's way ahead of me.
