4.3 S10 Turbo

Has anyone ever done that before? I mean a pretty simple turbo kit, pushing around 250-300hp, enough to move pretty quick, but not to much to tear the truck to shreads.

I've come into some money and was thinking about doing this.

I know some of you will say just put in a 350, but I've heard some horror stories about that at the dealership where I work, real pain in the groin as I've been told.

Would it be just as easy to buy a turbo and do it myself? I'm fairly mechanically inclinded, all I don't know a whole lot about is what injectors to use and how to reprogram the computer.

Thanks for all the help in advance!

I would look at a bolt on Vortech Supercharger rather then a turbo, at least as far as ease of install and reliability. I havent seen a turbo "kit" for the 4.3, everything I have seen has been modded from something else to work, and there is a lot of tinkering to do to get it all right. A Vortech would bolt on and be designed for that engine.

But yea, there are forums all over the place with people that could better answer your question, as I am sure you know. Good luck!
