My 6.0 is in the shop

So my 6.0 has 190k miles on her and she is bone stock. She just went into the shop for the the usual Head studs, egr delete, oil cooler replace, heads redone if not cracked, all the normal gaskets replaced .....
I decided on some other extras suck as 4inch turbo back exhaust, act tuner installed with a hand full of tunes. FASS fuel system, bigger radiator, ficm upgrade...

My question for you guys is I have the option now to do injectors and turbo.

MY concern with that is will my stock tire size be good enough to hold the power, and will my transmission hold up as well as my drive shaft. Im not looking to hot rod in the truck. How ever with that much power who knows what will happen.

Transmission and driveshaft will be ok for 190/30s and a stage 2 turbo. Tire size is easy enough to change but just roll into the throttle vs just going WOT and you will be fine. Its all in what you want and what you intend to do with the truck honestly. IMHO if I had the extra money for injectors and turbo I would go for it.

If you are spending money, get a KC turbo.

This would be the charger to go perfect with those 190/30's.
