What turbo??

Okay so I just recently installed a set of Full Force stage 1 injectors. During the install I thought I would inspect my turbo as I haven't been building as much boost as usual, and EGT's have been a bit higher as well.

To make a long story short I am replacing the turbo but do not know what route I should go. The truck is a daily driver/work truck and lives hooked to our dump trailer. It grosses 15-20k lbs day in and day out. I cannot have a laggy turbo, and I want as little smoke as possible.

So far is a list of my options:
1) Rebuilt stock unit with bellowed up-pipes, EBPV delete, and WW2 from Dieselsite. - $1500+
2)D66/DIY 66 with bellowed up-pipes, and EBPV delete. - $2200+/-
3) T4 mount with S366 - $2200 and includes bellowed up-pipes, and no ebpv to delete. Also allows room for growth in the future if I decide to go bigger.

So far I am leaning toward the S366 but am concerned it might be too laggy with the stage 1's. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance for any help.

P.S. - My turbo cannot be used as a core, that is why the prices are so high.

If you dont plan on adding power down the road i would go with the first option. Where did you find a DIY 66?

Interesting cause the link on my phone to his SIG only shows the '01 f250 and a '71 Mach1. Nothing about a '96.

Must be that normal "different servers used" trouble where some people see different sigs... I can also see the 01' listed but just below is a picture with the information and mods listed for a 96'

BTW OP, I have a good e99 turbo that I believe will bolt right up, or if your bent on a new one, I suppose you can use it as a core or even rebuild it yourself? Just some options for you.

How controllable would the smoke be with the stock turbo? Also I almost feel like that's a waste of money in a sense, but I don't know.

Barder turbo offers a DIY kit. You just assemble it. Pretty awesome.


Yes the truck in question is the 96, sorry for any confusion.

I've heard good things bout the barder, but stock turbo is fine for stage 1's, if your going to 2 or small hybrids I'd aim for the DIY 66, but anything bigger go ahead and go big, but if you want to keep the truck mostly for work and a lil more power to tug that weight just go 238/100 and the DIY 66, every set up but the stock one will be laggy with just the stage 1's

Upgrading to a 38R would clear up the smoke for sure, but I'm not sure how long it would hold up to towing 15-20k day in and day out. I would call directly to Garrett tech support to see what they have to say. I don't think they would give you a sales pitch either since they make all of them.

No need to apologize, that's an issue with Autoguide.
