Ya I just did some research on it after I made that post. Guys are back and forth about whether its worth it or not. They said 8psi is about all you can go stock and I would have to spend a lot of $$$$ to make it withstand more and to boost it. Its paid off in a year which is when I plan on doing whatever it I decide so for now I'll order the the pulley and order the roller rockers from tom morana, exhaust and a tune. Should wake it up just fine to get by till I buy a little puddle jumper to get me to work and see if I can figure out the wiring to make the Explorer 5.0 work in my truck. By the time I spend all the money to build up 3.0 to handle more boost than 8 psi and the money to turbo it I could have a sick V8. Just have to figure out how to make it work.
Also is it just as easy to go to my local dyno and have them tune it or do you guys recommend using something like bama chips or Fred(rogue tune)?
