Towing turbo; upgrade or replace?

I want to eliminate the surge and get the load moving with more authority. I've looked at the 38R, which is about $1900 installed. Is there any advantage to going that route v/s upgrading the stock 38 with ported housing, new wheel, high flow outlet and upgraded blow off valve? Which is more cost effective and would give the most bang for the buck?

Not looking for extreme boost, just solid and reliable power.

F250 sold.

Depends on how deep your pockets are. The Wicked-Wheel cured my turbo surge but isn't gonna increase performance. If you just want to cure the surge get the W-W from XDP for $75.

Just did a H2E install on my truck and WOW!!! Its quiet and has great boost throughout the rpm range. Not cheap but well worth it. They are also easily upgradeable with lots of options.
