In the market for a new turbo!

Well I think the old turbo is taking a dump... not 100% sure yet, but I'm getting there. Anyway, there is no sense in replacing a stock turbo with another stock turbo! LOL, that would just be sac-religious! What turbo recommendations do you guys have for me? I pretty much want a bolt on replacement, don't want to have to change pedestals or anything. You can see my mods in my signature. I really donít want to have to change head studs either. May do injectors one day, but I think thatís going to be the extent of it. Let me know what you think.

I would get the TN because it has been reported to spool faster then the GT38R and it has not reported to surge. Either turbo does not have a core charge if you get it from a reputable shop. Then I would sell your turbo and housing to recoupe some of your cost.

I have not run either turbo but only read about them so I am only reporting what I have read.

Keep Strokin'

Actually a VAN turbo would a cheap upgrade. No wastegate and bigger housing.

Turbonetics, D66, or Garrett 38R... all drop-in's. Will all spool well and pull a LOT harder top end.

When did banks start offering rebuild kits for turbos?

A banks wheel is a good wheel. The better spool up you talk about I am sure you say it comes from their "quick spool" housing, right? Now here is where banks engineers and I have always tangled. How do you call a 1.0A/R housing quick spool when a .84A/R comes stock? When you increase the exhaust housing size you create lag not faster spool, keeping all things the same other than the turbo.

I do understand the quick spool housing was originally designed for the OBS trucks that came with a 1.15A/R from the factory so I see where it is called a quick spool. So change the darn name to "slow spool" and I will leave well enough alone. My dad has a banks housing on his OBS and it does spool faster but we are talking about super dutys and not OBS trucks.
