I'm an STS Dealer.

First you have to know how much power you want to make, then I can give you a price.

My prices are much lower than the MSRP at STS.

Keep in mind, on a stock motor, you can only make around 7-8lbs safely.

7 psi is a safe boost level for stock engines. If you want to test the waters, shoot for 8.5psi. But IMO, that's it. If you want to build a nice forged engine then you can get on up to 15 to 20psi with the STS setup.

Having an '03, plan on getting an '04 fuel pump cuz it has 10 psi more fuel pressure. Go ahead and start looking for gauges on the for sale forums. You'll want a wideband a/f gauge, EGT and boost gauge. Find those from other members so when you spend the $$ on the turbo it won't be such a big hit buying EVERYTHING at once.

Plan on meth injection for cooling since you want 7 to 8psi of boost. Get the STS meth kit from kenihemi and you can use the smt6 to control it perfectly.

Tell her it went towards drugs and Hookers, that way the truth about it going in the Hemi doesn't sound so unreasonable.

it's easier to plan on 10k. 5k for turbo and 5k for her boob job. Then you secretly benefit both ways but she won't see it that way and you'll be tickled. lol
