Turbo Upgrades Needed

I wanna buy:

Adjustable wastegate

Larger turbo housing

Wicked wheel

Larger turbine housing

Who has the best deals on these and what brands and where should i purchase these from?

Let me know what's the better brand, place to purchase, ect...

I'm looking to rid the truck of turbo shuttering/surging ect...and boost up quicker so I think I would be fine with all but the turbine housing for now.

X2 on the 38. By the time you spend all that money you have a good start on a 38r payment. Even with all those upgrades your stocker will still only handle 25lb boost numbers for only so long before it craps.

Good point about the 38R.
The wonder how much more in price and performance the 1.15 housing is over the 1.00 housing?

Is buying the other housing a must or worth the cost after upgrading the turbo?

There are vendors who do sell it for the same price with the 1.15 housing already installed.

It isn't a must to do for the 38R. But it sure helps top end, also can reduce the surge issues when you have big tires and stock gears with low rpm's.

I do have big tires, I run 38x14.50 Toyo MT's. I'm not sure if the gears are stock or have ever been changed out. I will have to see if I can figure it out or not. I'm probably going with the 38R with 1.15 housing, stage 2 single shot injectors, DP tuner. I'm hoping to be around 400 rwhp and 700 rwtq which will be a good daily driver/tow truck for the boat, atv's ect...

Thanks, I think I will too. Probably more than enough for what I'll ever need out of a truck like this.
