I got everything installed, the pipes were a snap. The new GTP38R turbo is awesome, I don't know if its just because my old turbo was in really bad shape but it feels like a new truck. Before if I put it to the wood I might eek out 14-15 PSI and I would not build any boost at all just driving down the road. From a start I would have to apply at leas 3/4 throttle just to get my boost gauge to move. Now I jumped out on the highway thinking I would accelerate normal and gave it 1/2 throttle. My PSI boost gauge pegged out and scared the crap out of me. The the truck shot forward like a sports car and the turbo whistle was intoxicating. Next thing I know I'm running 70 like its nothing, I used to have to push it hard to run 65. She ran a cool 5 PSI with cruise on 62 MPH (normally it would be a -1 PSI on cruise). Now on Monday I get to replace my Banks Chip with the Hydra.
For reference the total time to R&R up-pipes and new turbo: 8 HRS
