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 don't know if anyone makes a turbo kit for you. It shouldn't be that hard to find a supercharger though it wont be cheap. A turbo is more efficent, a supercharger is easier to install. A supercharger is better for low end power; it's better for a truck.

That's the thing that made me mad about my '94 Zr2 I had, not enough power and ****ty MPG's.

That being said I've been looking into a turbo for my four cylinder.
I wonder if a supercharger from a 3.8 would bolt up yo the 4.3. They're both 90deg engines correct?
