The VGT SS turbo will work better with the injectors you are wanting. But if you can find an 03 turbo, it will give you a good sound and at a much better cost.

i would get the 03 like it was said, its cheaper and it will put you on the charts for sure if you plan on running the truck. that turbo lites good and holds boost all the way down the track

If you are planning stage 2's I would get the VGT-SS or equivilent. If you were to stay stock the 03 would be good imo.

I would make sure to get studs before going with any type of VGT SS and injectors.

Tow with it regularly and it dropped the EGT's and spooled quicker......Havent had one problem with the turbo so far.
