Turbo Upgrade

Does anyone know of an upgrade turbo that bolts up on the OBS. Not looking for crazy, just a little help to pull the 5th wheel. I don't have any troubles now, would just like some more efficiency. I want to add an intercooler and need to make up for the PSI loss.

Dominator 66 or convert to a late '99 setup and get a GTP38R.

D66..... But with a 17* hpop, diy fuel and some 200cc or 230cc hybrid injectors then tow all day long.. A D66 or he2 with no mods will not help much.

Stage 1s and towing a 5th wheel with stock turbo? Wouldnt you end up blowing that thing up going up a big hill or something?

but anyways....go with the D66 or a H2e. I have heard the H2e is alittle better but i cant say it is myself cause i dont have one lol.

Get the D66. That's what I'm running and it does a great job towing my camper. I picked up 30 hp and 35 ft/lb with this turbo. I dyno'd the truck before and after the turbo to see what gains were made.

97, it's runs great uphills. My EGT's have never been over 1100 even up a 5%. Beans has the D66 right?

Nah, right now I have a stock turbo and 200cc hybrids and it does OK, a little hot right now though.
