Would it be easier to put a 6.0 from a Denali in it? Maybe that and a chip would get enough TQ boost?

If he wants to keep same engine, the Vortec/Paxton type blower is more efficient as far as heat build up, easy to package too.

Belts are for holding your pants up. Through a turbo on it.

The belt comment is great.

The roots style design of the magnacharger is going to give that truck more torque right away. It may not be as efficient or end up with as high of peak numbers as a paxton or other centri's (or turbos for that matter) but I'd think it wold be a better choice for pulling a load. JMO
