      Do you have any good side profile pictures of the truck? I am thinking about the hotchkis set up also but curious on the ride height. Really like the build though every time my mind wanders off and starts thinking I need this or that like the big dollar guys looking back at this and remind myself it can look so good and function for normal guy prices hahaha.

      Hotchkis kit definitely handles very good for the money. I love it.

      Awesome. If I remember you dont have drop spindles or lowering blocks. I like the stance and good to hear it works so well.

      I started gathering parts to twin turbo the truck

      Turbos Direct Garrett billet wheel 62ís
      Aermotive fuel pressure regulator
      Turbosmart Race port BOV
      Turbosmart 40mm Comp gates

      Iíll post more pictures as the build starts taking place. They will be mounted up under the cab, so we can keep the engine bay clean and use the ultimate headers I already have installed. Iím super excited

      Nice turbo goodies. Have you made any progress on that front. It would be hard to stop driving this thing to fab up the turbos, but once turbos are done....hold on!!

      Thank you! I just purchased the Air to water intercooler set up for it so I wonít have to hack up the core support at all, also got my injectors and scavenge pump, ice box thatís going in the bed etc. Iím just waiting for a spot to open up at the shop thatís doing the install for me. According to the gentleman doing it for me I should have it back within a week once I drop it off.

      Iím going to post pictures and a video once itís complete. Just waiting to get it in to him now.

      Awesome, that's a pretty quick turn around for a whole lot more power. Did he share the details of his list of mods that he will be doing? I assume he will be pulling the heads and gapping the rings plus head studs as well. I have plans of running a single turbo on my C10, but am still in the body work stages, working on the cab now. So, curious of what all will be done to prep the motor. Keep at it, really liking the build!! Gonna be a blast to drive.

      We are going to leave the head bolts and rings alone. With what power we are gonna have it at, itíll be safe. Down the road Iíll probably do the head studs and maybe a better piston/rod combo. And thank you very much!

      He does a ton of turbo builds and assured me itíll be a blast where he is setting it at. Which is what I think will be my saving grace as far as keeping the engine in one piece. We are leaving the gate spring at 7lbs.

      Keeping the IATís down with the Air to water intercooler will also help in keeping the engine alive.

      Itís definitely a lot to do but Iím sure youíll love it when you throw a turbo on it and get it rolling down the road.

      If you donít mind me asking why are you going turbo over letís say a centrifugal supercharger. I would figure the turbo lag down low would be bad. Thatís why we went with a whipple on my wifeís truck.

      Iíve always been a fan of turbos, weíve had them on our sand cars and I loved the way they ran.

      I wanted a whipple originally but liked that my engine bay looks clean as is and with the turbos mounted under the cab, itíll stay that way. All youíll see is a charge tube with the BOV.

      When I went to turbos direct to get pick them Up, the way I had the turbos built, itíll spool very fast with the T3 housings. It should on at about 2800-3000.. And if I ever wanted to, I could go with a bigger T4 housing and push these to 1200+hp.

      Got ya. How big are the turbos and the engine CI ? I am with you with the clean engine bay. I all most went NA with my wifeís truck for the same reason.None the less going to be bad ass between the frame rails of your C10 for sure.
