    I don't think you NEED to do anything to it, but I would try to beef it up as much as possible. There is going ot be a ton more horsepower going to it. Plus, I doubt you are going to drive like you do know.:D Pedal to the floor!

    tranny will be fine, although the price for a supercharger, injectors, manifolds, belts, hoses, intakes, is probably worth more than the truck and is not made to be towing anything.

    sure you could use it for towing, the torque is instant. It is just all the extra heat that will be generated. What kind of blower are you thinking of? Are you going to get an aftercooler? Are you looking at a roots style or a centrifugal blower? All those questions you have to decide on pros and cons the centifugal blower will be easier to mount and should come as a kit with all the stuff to make it work, the roots one you will have to do some intake manifold mods.
