Sounds like you've got some pretty big plans there with the new engine, sc, and headers. Which sc btw? Im guessing its RSM

I just bought a 3500 top end to swap in, but that wont get put on for a while.

yeah its the rsm one, i was thinking about doing a turb instead though, and selling the sc, any thoughts?

Turbo is going to be more expensive than the SC. However, a turbo will have much higher potential than the RSM SC. Considering the fact that you already have the SC in hand and wont get very much for it if sold. Id just stick with the SC. Everything for a turbo will need to be custom made. There are a couple things others have suggested when using the RSM unit though. For one, use the MAF and get it tuned, replace the rubber shielded bearing with a metal one, and I remember seeing something about a keyway on the shaft. There are plenty of threads about the RSM kit, Id suggest you check them out.
