downside of the vans are no intercooler, and factory de-tuned... I have one as work van, it can barely get out of it's own way. Has a 11' work/covered utility box, loaded with tools, sits at about 11K lbs most of the time. So, if you go this route, be sure to straight pipe it, fab up some better air cleaner/intake, as there is no aftermarket one out there that I can find, get a good tuner, gauges, etc. I have straight piped mine, and that helped, but still need to fab up an air cleaner/intake. In the long run, I plan to find a cab and chassis truck that I can swap the bed/box onto, so I can be using a truck chassis, and ditch the van chassis.
