The GMC pickup is a Sierra here. They had a "High Sierra" trim level before that,on the Jimmy and others, circa 1970's and 80's. I've never seen anything named Chevy Sierra.

This is going to be fun :) So here's a List Of parts a Buddy provided to get for Supercharger upgrade.



Supercharger

ARP Head and Rod Bolts.

Low Comp con rods and Pistons. Perfect Ratio is between 8.1 to 9.1 nothing lower and nothing higher

Upgrade valves, valve Guides, retainers ( Preferably High rev Dual Spring Retainers )

Skim Head ( Use only Metal Head gaskets. Nothing else )

Upgrade all Belts

Twin 4 barrel Holly Carb using supercharged setup

Upgraded Branch+ Exhausts

Upgraded Pullys allround.

Boost, Oil, Water temp gauges, Fuel Pressure Gauge as well

Boost Controller Switch

Try to get a Mallorey distributor. Perfect Timing for this setup will be at idle anything from 16 to 24deg

Make sure u get a decent fuel pressure regulator aswell



Recommendation - Is To bore out the block to 3.2, fit bigger lower compression pistons.



Above Supercharged setup should be good for around 300kw.

Am waiting for a TWIN T4 Application Or a Bigger Turbo Application
- Will keep you guys updated
