Future project; help

Hey guys, recently got an 05 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi and I'm looking on making it or adding higher performance parts, I want to cam it, add a single turbo, etc. I want it to be fast and use it as a weekender. The problem is I don't know where to start and also looking for a shop to do this. I have had bad luck on previous projects, one being swapping an NA motor with a TT into a 300zx Nissan, it's a nightmare so thinking on leaving this project to the professionals. Not that I'm scared too do it, I just don't want to take longer then what it has to take. I know mopar is expensive so I have to start somewhere small. Any ideas ? Help ? Got the SLT model with infinity audio system , tow mirrors; don't know if that means anything, I'm new to the mopar world but I'm up for it since I'm a cars/trucks/bikes enthusiast. Looks come after performance for me. Feel free to add an comments. And for those people with the negative comments, keep them coming cause it's motivation to prove you wrong.

The 05 IMO is the best platform to start a project with. There is a couple turbo trucks on here that can help you get started..

Welcome, there are a lot of places to start. But if you are serious about a turbo then forging the bottom end would be a good start. A low compression forged rotating assembly and a good custom grind turbo cam would yield nice power once the turbo is in place. If the turbo is not a guarantee then longtube headers and a good cam will net good results. In either case a higher stall torque converter will be beneficial.

Yep forge the engine first of going boost. Then either get a rear mount or have a front mount fabbed up. Longtubes is suggested very good torque from them along with 4:56 gears toss in a nice boosst cam and enjoy

Go front mount turbo all the way. You'll never regret it. Forge your engine.
