Newbie from MD. Looking for Builder/Installer

Postby Lowandslow92 » Sun Sep 24, 2017 1:45 pm

Anyone know of a shop close to MD or in MD. I have 92 ext cab 4.3 all original/ish. Truck is for my son. So I need it done professionally. Safe and reliable. As safe as 500 hp can be. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated thanks

Do you want a V8 swapped in to it? 500hp isn't too safe for anyone unless they are a smart experienced driver.

Do you have a budget in mind? Having a shop do it can be pricey. Buying one already done is a good option.

Don't get me wrong, it can be done but having a shop do it can be close to $15k-$20k with the labor involved at shop rate.

How old is your son? 500 hp in the hands of a "less than well seasoned" driver is a recipe for disaster. Seems like a better idea for a father son project, maybe a 350 hp 5.3, with a goal of 500 hp down the road, with some well planned mods. Lay the ground work in the beginning, with a stout rear diff and trans, let him get used to the power and handling, than add more power later. JMHO, :thumbup:
