bigger exhaust/get rid of the muffler/cat (if you have a cat)
slap on a turbo

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

get a gauge and go to town on that pump...it'll smoke like a freight train....If I could find a standard cab IDI I'd add it to my collection any day, very very good trucks.... and I'm thinking the pump I turned up for a buddy only went 3/4 of a turn so be ready for that 1/8 to do alot!!

No it will not cut your mileage in half...at first it might cause you won't be able to keep your foot out of it....the only other thing I can think of is some old ford bus's used 6.9's and they were turbocharged...don't ask me how I know, but there happened to be a mine real close and I was able to inspect an old abandoned 86 International bus they had, and it was turbocharged and if you take all the tubing it will hook right up to your motor

You have me confused binder man. I thought 3/4 was a bigger number than 1/8, so how would the smaller turn put out more fuel??

no no no..okay my buddy's pump only had 3/4's of a turn from stock until it was all the way up....so I'm saying an 1/8 will be a LOT more fuel tan you think it will be.

You've got that right. We usually go around 1/4 with the installation of a turbo kit. We actually still offer them (sidewinder turbo kits) but not for much longer. We're going to discontinue them in December
