You won't find much on them because they aren't capable of making the 1000hp most people want, when they spend 2g on a turbo.

I wouldn't call them overpriced. It's probably the way to go if you want to make lots of power and still be streetable. And the sound is ear candy.

Thats the point, I want to make around 400 to 450ish and still have good fuel economy, tow and be a daily driver, not looking to build a compatition truck, at least not in the near future. probably only gonna put in 90hp injectors and use a fuel box to control my power needs for what i want. When you say the saound is ear candy, i take it whistles pretty loud, like a big peterbuilt?
