Cheapest way to go right now would be 2.5" pulley and 60# injectors with an HPtuner tune.

If you want more than 300+ to the wheels, youre going to have to replace pistons and such whether you want to turbo it or not.

HPTuners? is that something i can use now, GM Stage 2...CAI, would the tune help any more? i thought when the stage 2 was installed it was retuned as well.

HPTuners is its own standalone system that can reprogram a ridiculous amount of variables in the ECU.

Stage2 cant run much less than 2.8" without problems. HPTuner can be programmed (and has been) to run the right fuel, etc, for a 2.5" pulley and bigger injectors. The MAF-Translator cant pull enough fuel for 60# injectors, so you'll need HPTuner to run that safely.

That's the current best setup so far that i can tell.

Or just follow the GM build book if you want to go balls out.
