the simple answer is search theres alot of threads on here about this. but superchargers around around $5000+ from places like raptor and capa n turbos are more expensive i think

super charger would be better on the 5.0ltr as they pick up earlier and the 5ltrs are a little dohy down low. A turbo would be interesting to see setup as theres not alot of room around for it and the piping and the actual turbo.

I think a correctly sized turbo for the 5l would work well. You wont have lag as it has got decent capacity to start with.

Your probably right there, ive never driven a turbo 8 only 6's and some of them have horrible lag until the turbo finnally starts to come on
