    A buddy of mine wants to put a turbo kit on his 2002 chevy truck. There is a company called SRK Fabrication that makes kits for these ready to bolt in. I was wondering how hard it would be to put it on? do you think someone that is mechanically inclined that just hasn't done it before could handle it?? I wouldnt think that it would be that hard, but i could be wrong.

    You may want to give Wheel to Wheel a call. Kurt Urban over there has a turbo truck that he drives. They could definitely help you out over there.

    I did not realize it was the same kit. I have no idea how hard it was to install on Jim's truck. I was never around when he was installing it. I never heard any complaints though.
