Not to mention every day I see new stuff especially about appearances and start trying to add that in too XD it never ends
Yep, any questions about turbocharging the atlas engines, feel free to drop me a line at jeremy at lime-swap dot com. I'm more comfortable with the electronics side of things, but I've been fortunate to have been exposed to many different projects.

Here's a good example. Autoroc is the standard bearer for high, reliable boost on the I6:
I wrote that before I was able to come across some forged parts.Capote
It is confirmed to handle 17Ibs stock. I'm aiming for 400+ as well. So you're gonna have some forged internals made up? I'm not going down that path, only due to how expensive it is, since nobody makes anything aftermarket for this engine (internally) unless requested by someone.?"
Not quite accurate.
I have started to rebuild the knowledge base after the vortec4200 cratered earlier this year
The 4l60e we have can handle up 400hp*, with a Turbo you'd easily surpass that depending on how much boost you plan on running. Your best option is to upgrade all the stock components. You wouldn't have to swap it out at all. There's plenty of high horsepower builds out there with 4L60e's.Sounds good to me. We've been busy up here getting my friends 350 running. We dropped in a newer 3.5 and figured we would swap in new everything. Then had to chase gremlins...
Anyway, on now to figuring out if the 4L60e can handle power. Also still cant decide on what turbo I want. The one we found for the Cummins was 230$ but haven't settled yet.
In other news I'm also debating on what to do with the 4.2. 07, just hit 101k miles.. new gaskets/seals, head bolts, etc.
