What to do? turbo

my turbo is surging under heavy load. also, i think my small oil leak is coming from the pedestal. now my question, my truck is mostly stock with everything in sig. i plans are for FF 160 1shots down the road but no time soon. should i keep stock turbo and put a ww2 in it or upgrade to 38r? i have thought about a s366 but it is a little pricey and more than i want to spend. i do plan to get rid of my ebpv, is it better to delete them and reuse pedestal and outlet or get new?

Just do the WW2 for now. No sense spending $1400 while you don't need the 38r

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

yup, you can even do the first gen w.w., or the ported compressor housing. The s366 is more expensive then the 38r is because your getting bellowed up pipes, with the kit...(different turbo mount config).
