Turbo

My bud has a 99 24v and has a built tranny, air intake, 90hp injectors and a smarty. He went to a local shop for pricing on stacks to replace his 4" exhaust, and asked them what they would recommend next. They said he has plenty of fuel and could use more air next. They use BD products; so his question was does anyone recommend BD, or somethin else (hes open to ideas cuz hes sittin on $2500 to spend on upgrades). :idea:

IMO an a5k would be way too big for that amount of fuel. In my experience they are pigs on the street, a 71mm comp wheel is big for a single. I would say with his set up, get a bone stock s300g or 62/12 or 62/14 and throw a fueling box like an edge comp in as well if he doesn't already have one.

i agree with sstockton. s300g and 62/14 would be good choices. and A5k is too big for a daily driven single. just my :2cents

My only experience with the A5k is on a friends 05 common rail, that is putting down 891 on spray with that charger, and it is really laggy on the street if you're trying to drive it normal. If you don't mind a ton of smoke, and a bit of lag down low, which can be fine for some, its not a bad charger. If you're using the truck to DD and tow with, that isn't always fun. Just my .02 though.

The 5000 is way to big for that engine and fueling combination. Run a Phat shaft 62/14 all you will ever need and have awesome driveability. I will PM you some pricing.
