no not right now, i will see how the power is with the 5.4 and the 1356 in low, i cant see the need to be too much lower than that. if the 1356 fails ill do something else.

yeah i had trouble getting up to that when i was naturally aspirated but with the blower i cant get rolling pretty good now, assuming i have 4wd. haha
