    Default Sonoma 5.3 Turbo

    little project i've been working on. 98 sonoma i picked up back in july of 2013. the swap is already finished but ive since then went with forced induction. this is just a toy but also my DD...... had the truck in the driveway and stripped out the same day, the following day i had the frame painted and and had the motor in lol . I originally had no intentions of turboing the truck or i would've went front mount. I pulled the trigger to go with a mid-mount turbo because the drivetrain setup i have in the truck is a potent setup. It has a 2005+ 5.3L LS motor which has the thicker GEN IV Rods, and a 4L80e I got a REALLY good deal on.

    parts list-

    -5.3L ( Stock 706 truck heads)
    -PAC1218 Valve spring
    -228R Comp Cam
    -4L80e
    -Circle D 3200 stall
    -Tru-cool 40k trans cooler
    -Ford 8.8 3.73L
    -GT45 Ebay turbo
    -50mm ebay BOV
    -38mm Wastegate
    -AEM UEGO Wideband kit
    -Glow shift boost gauge
    -Glowshift Fuel pressure gauge
    -Racetronix Hotwire kit
    -Walbro 400
    -60lb Siemens Deka injectors

    That's cool!

    Nice and clean install. Only because I have no knowledge of that setup is it an easy install? Anything crazy special?
