Re: Turbo Help! 5.0 302
If the turbo kit does anything that ties into the PCM, then, no, it won't work. If the turbo is completely independent of the PCM, then I don't see a reason it won't. There are differences between the H.O. 5.0 and the standard 5.0, (firing order, for instance), but a stand alone turbo should be just adding boost through induction. However, bear in mind that the engine in your truck probably wasn't designed for high performance in it's stock form. If all you're doing for a mod is adding the turbo, I recommend keeping your boost mild. You may also end up with a nuisance CEL
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
