Hi,

my friend has a 2004 Silverado Quad Cab 4x4
It has the 6.0 V-TEC V8 engine (gas)

He asked me what the guys of the alley would suggest he would do to the engine to make it a bit peppier and get some more ponies.
His budget is a few thousand, he doesn't want to go all out crazy but he'd appreciate some advice from the truck guys/gals here at the alley.

Thanks for any ideas!

I think you might wanna consider the basics before thinking about a blower. Banks offers this kit that consists of basic intake and exhaust mods. Looks like it includes cold air intake, headers and full exhaust. Not sure about price but a few thousand will not cover a supercharger.. Let alone install and tuning.

Supposed to be good for gains of +24 hp, +27 lb-ft torque and 2% better mileage. It would really compliment the increased breathing of the blower if he wanted to do that later. Lot's of other manufacturers offer intake and exhaust, I just ran upon this "system" from Banks. They've been around a long time but I can't comment on quality and I doubt it is cheap.

If he wants the supercharger, I'd recommend he take a look at whipple and kenne-bell. Both offer roots supercharger that would make an boatload of torque from the 6.0 liter. Here is the whipple.

and the kenne bell.

Hope this helps.

Tell him I'd be more than happy to tow him around town for a bit with my Lightning - that'll wake his truck up a bit. ;)

Can't help ya much...nitrous is the quick and easy solution for many cheap ponies. Less headache than going blower with that thing I'd imagine.

If he wants a supercharger for it, I would go Whipple with a GM vortec. Kenne Bell for a dodge.
