Precision 7675 Turbo, Hooker Turbo exhaust manifolds the rest of the piping (cold and hot side) was all built specific for the truck. Aeromotive fuel pump, Holley fuel rails, treadstone intercooler, id 1000 injectors, Lil John Motorsports Stage 1 Turbo cam, AEM Boost regulator. I am sure I am forgetting a few things this is my first go with a turbo setup and it turned out to be alot more things involved than I realized.
