I know it's been done just don't understand it. What kinda truck you have? Lifted? Tire size?

The turbos compress the air before it hits the supercharger. On a lightning, the air is not compressed before it hits the charge, its only compressed once it goes through. The turbos essential compress the air molecules so more boost fits into each turn of the charge, then the charge compresses the compressed air even more. I had a tough time understanding the logic of it too until you start reading pressure diagrams and models.

33.8" tires with 4.10's

Nice pic Wayne. I've got a 1 year old son. Best thing that's ever happened to me. But you can keep the ankle biter.

Gotcha! But at 22# with a fully built motor with heads and cams you could see 700s. Think you will need more low end? A stall should allow enough boost to build! Would make for easier launches on the street with boost coming on later in the band. Right?
