Depending on boost levels you may want a forged bottom end. If you dont plan on shoving a ton of boost,either way a "custom or one off" kit is prob gonna be your best bet. Just gotta find someone around you that does that work unless your gonna do it yourself?

Yeah I'm wanting to do it myself. I'm learning my way around trucks and doing all this myself( with help from people that know there way) will help me learn. Just gotta be pointed in the right direction.

Start with just building up the internals first then once that is done you can focus on hooking up a turbo. Boosting an engine that is not ready could have very bad results.

----------

You might want to think about what your compression ratio is now and which pistons you want to run because too high of compression will also destroy things when boost is added.

The motor should be good for about 5 pouns of boost. I think you would want to do a remote turbo setup. Basically remove muffler and install turbo. then run all your piping and oil lines back up to the motor.

If your feeling froggy, swap the manifolds. They are symetrically the same, so you could swap sides, placing the exhaust end up and to the front. Mount a turbo on each one
