Turbochargers only make boost under engine load, not at idle. If you womp on your engine in neutral you can usually see a few PSI, but until the injection pump starts throwing fuel to meet a load the turbo isn't going to work.

what a piece, i dont even think its nice eye candy, the whole mega cab long bed thing rocks, but other then that im not to impressed w/ it. i guess what i see is alot of things to go wrong w/ it. what if it does get used and you break a suspension part, from what i can tell theyre all custom pieces soooo itll suck having it fixed, on the other hand if ya got the money and thats what floats yer boat more power to ya just not myfirst choice is all.....what do i know im only 24 lol

Those are installed there specifically for the fool that buys it... They will definitely have their head up their ars... so the LCD's will give hours and hours of great entertainment.

I like the SRW longbed Mega 4x4... but not that one! Paint is ok at best and interior is terrible and looks unfinished. Under the hood is gaudy and hacked and the suspension looks too fragile... I can't even think of what this truck would be good for...

For 130K I would expect some more power mods than a bullydog and exhaust, why not go to the dealership pick up a stock truck and configure it the way you want it thatd leave you about 90K to do what you want.

Off road truck??? With a long box??? No skid plate under the transfercase??? Interesting that the only bid seems to be 35K.

I'm 18 and think that is ridiculous. Way way way over the top. However it does say "show truck" from " SEMA". Not sticking up for it or anything, still think it is terrible. Wouldn't spend the money on it. to each his own.
