I understand all of the benefits of the Turbo and that its delay can be beneficial, but there is nothing comparable to the instant pickup of a supercharger. Stick with it! I'm definitely going to be following this project.
Don't hold your breath too hard, it'* gonna be a bit before I can really start on it lol

sounds like your syncros are bad, and a big truck is different from a car trans, my fil says that all the time. big trucks have stait cut gears for strength and i dont think they even use syncros. but a car trans the way they cut the gear it needs the other gear to be pretty close

Yes I know that. I'll probably just use the 4 speed that'* in it now until I blow it from the power then get one. Also nothing says I have to buy all the parts brand new from them
