Get with some of obs guys, but it is my understanding that a modded H2E is the way to go for the obs trucks since a GT38R won't just bolt on. Of course depends on power levels you are looking for though too.

put a stock SD turbo on it is a good upgrade and you can run the 38r too

I thought the obs trucks needed some extra parts to make them work, in which case the h2e should be cheaper and similar, maybe better performance.

if you upgrade to a SD turbo style, you will need up pipes, mounting flange from a 99.5 and up truck. You dont NEED a intercooler, but it would greatly help. a stock 99 and up one works fine. you will need a set of boots, pipes and the Y pipe of the turbo and the bigger 3" intakes on the heads.

IMO, if youre going turbo route, go with a direct bolt on D66.

I have one on my early 99, and I love it! spools good, has alot more airflow and will support up to stage 2 injectors and 40 PSI.

you can go with a hypermax H2E, but its very expensive and you will HAVE to have a intercooler then. H2E's run upwards of 2500 new for the setup. you'll need injectors if you go that way. Stockers wont spool it well, and you'll burn it up.

I think diesel site sells a set for 1500 or so for the whole kit. I have a SD turbo that needs a rebuild and some uppipes that need new doughnut gaskets. I will sell them cheap if you decide this route.

the garret Ball bearing turbo is 1499.00 on there

the H2E is at least 2250, and thats with no intercooler piping and such:
