Can't do much with it though, maybe delete it, turbo is a cork. Power won't be much more than stock from what I've been told about the Borg turbo. Mark better get busy with a new snail for it...

Has mike or Evan played with the trans yet? I was thinking about this the other night. Was wondering if they made more power with a solid trans. Or if they even pull power like a Lml

Ill be curious how much they can get out of that turbo, sucks GM started using such small turbos on the trucks since the lml. If only it was something like the 6.7l ford turbo on the 15-present trucks.

We pulled the trans out of my 17 last summer out at Suncoast and went through it and had some shafts made up. Not many changes to the majority of trans but the 2001-2016 converters will not work with out swapping out the stator support and input shaft. Suncoast already has converter options for them being made up though so no need. I will say oddly enough even stock my c1’s and c3’s were hot spotted pretty bad.

Did you put any goodies back in your trans? Was curious if it picked up any power with just a trans build. I wouldn’t think it would unless the ecm was pulling power.

I don’t see why the turbo won’t support 500/1000. Yea it is smaller than I would like but these heads flow a lot of air. I could be wrong but I would like to find out

No it was still a disconnected feeling turd I traded it in for my Hellcat and got another 15.5 Denali. I wouldn’t want that truck back even if there was tuning.

I'm surprised to hear that. My buddy just bought an 18 and for a stock truck I was very impressed by it.

Everyone I know that owned one now has traded them in and most ended up happy in a new ford oddly enough. Power is great but the engine and trans act like they are talking to each other in two different languages. I’m sure some people are happy with them but i talk to be almost daily who are not. I couldn’t get rid of mine fast enough.
