what turbo to get?

Im having quite a hard choice..
I wanted to rebuild my turbo but the cost to do the rebuild and do some addons is going to cost about 300 shy of a new turbo.

Im between the BD Turbo Thruster or the Garret GTP 38R both are nice but i want some opinions on which one may be better

go with 38r. its a ballbearing turbo instead of journal bearings and is proven up to stage 2's.

I really like mine. I don't mind the whistle at all. Seems to be a good fit nowadays for even up to 250/200's if you want to ho that high or for just a stock replacement. Tuning has come along ways to make it very versatile. Just keep checking around and sometimes you can catch a good sale going.

Gtp38r is ball bearing for super fast spool up, can handle stage 2's, and is not rebuildable

BD is a trust bearing turbo, spool will be similar to stock, apparently can also handle stage 2's, it's quieter than the 38r
