I would get the a 4K kit, but if you don't want to install HD valve springs then only get the 3K. A 4K works well w/ any truck, w/ the auto it will shift before you rev to high anywase. A 4K should only cost a little more and sometimes its the same. If you buy a 4K and leave the littlist spring out you will have a 3K and you could upgrade whenever you wanted to. But remember the valvesprings.

You can shim or tighten the springs but it makes the throttle touchy so its harder to drive on the street. theres a how to about the shims here https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...ad.php?t=15496

The HD srings are $55 for six so $110. They are required to avoid piston valve contact that is posible when going over 3500 rpm.

I'm not sure how everyone else installs (genos garge sells a tool to do it w/ the head still on) then but I'm going to pull my head and install a marine head gasket at the same time. If I had a bigger turbo I'd install head studs ando-rings too.

the stock ones clicked will give you a very touchy throttle, if you want too i beleive 3 clicks tighter on either side will allow you to fuel to about 3200, i would suggest just getting the kit, $96 from citydiesel.net for a 3gsk, $110 for a 4gsk, the 370s do make power, they are very smokey and will haze at idle due to the incorrect spray pattern for our automotive pistons, there designed for marine pistons, but yes they are cheap power and can flow a ton of fuel

:iagree Using thinner washers with 370's gets them in the head deeper which helps but they still haze especially when its cold outside.

so why only get springs for exhaust and not intake? not necessary on intake side - ever? :

370's will not harm anything other than people/things around your exhuast pipe.
