GSK Install

I was wondering how hard a GSK install is to do. I know were its at, but do I need special tools and does the pump have to come all the way off? I am pretty mechanically inclined but does the kit have any instructions? Also whats everyones opinion on wich one. The 3000 or the 4000. Is there a huge diffrence in the two? And if I do a 4000 do you have to do new valve springs. I can hit 3,200 rpms right now so what is a 3000 going to do? Thanks everyone.

I think its easy, especially once you get the hang of it. I go in the side and everything is right there. Just make sure not to loose the half-moon key for the throttle. I did once : that little thing is important, and dang hard to find

The 3K will fuel to 3000 so you can probably rev 3500 or over, but it will stop pulling around 3000 depending on how you set it up. If you ever want to turn over 3500, get the valve springs for sure.

Is there that much of a diffrence in stock to a 3000 GSK? Should I get 4000 and springs. Is it worth the extra money. Can valve springs be done in my garage?

Definitely worth the extra money. If you don't want to buy the valve springs still get the 4K GSK and don't install the smallest spring in each side and you'll have a 3K.

Valve springs are fairly easy with the right tool http://www.genosgarage.com/prodinfo.asp?number=LC16750

what will a 3000 and a 4000 fuel till? What are safe rpms without springs? Will going to the 4000 help pull my trailer better and make the truck a little faster? If I do get the 4000 can I run around for a couple of weeks till I get more money for springs? Is there anything bad about running the truck at that many rpms. Sorry for so many questions.
