Anyone try a BD supermax turbo on an LB7 yet. I am looking for real world rear wheel horsepower/torque. I have an '03 sierra, LB7

I know Eric at Merchant Automotive was playing with them late last year. He'll be the guy to talk to.

Keep in mind that you must have tilt steering on your truck if you plan on running this turbo. There is a problem with "wood" interference otherwise:D

I like mine...
I've been hearing all kinds of great things about this turbo.

they sell for 3k, give me a good offer and its yours...

the removal of the stock turbo should not be taken lightly, this is a ulgy, ulgy job, lots of sweat, blood, swear words, and broken tools to say the least...

almost turns me off the upgrade:mad:
