Depends. What do you want to do with the truck?? It sounds like you have towing in mind.

i would do compounds. thats what i will be putting on my truck with 190's and should make great power. and be drivable. anytime you go with a big single you lose drivability and towing

Exactly, if you want a towing machine, then yes compounds are the only way to go but they are EXPENSIVE and you will probably need a tranny to support the large amount of horse power. Plan on roughly 600hp with 190/100s, a 62/70 high pressure turbo, and a s475 or s480 low pressure turbo.

Plan on an easy $12k-$15k by the time it is all said and done to run compounds.
