There's been a drought for a while--but we're starting to see more trucks out there with enough power to turn the tires without being in low-range all the time. Damon wanted the most reliable power increase he could get for his 5.3L, so he had a Magna Charger supercharger (running 5 pounds of boost), a K&N air filter, Gibson headers, and Magnaflow exhaust installed for an owner-estimated 400 hp at the flywheel. This combo makes for a lively little small-block (enough to do damage) that we wish GM would offer us from the factory.
