TURBO TURBO TURBO!!!!

i am looking to get a new turbo for my 1999. i have talked to a few people and have heard a few things. i would like some other opinions tho. Ball bearing or not? obviously i know bigger housing and the basics. what will hold up the longest and get the most out of my money? any particular brand name better then others. would it be better to rebuild the one i have myself?

THANKS!!!!

Which turbo all depends on what your plans are with your truck I'd go with the Garrett 38R if you don't plan on going very big Stg II or III Injectors but any bigger than that and even the Stg III's I'd go with the Hypermax H2E this is a great turbo and can be modded as you add more power up to 550hp or so

It cost more but you get what you pay for standard H2E runs around $2400 w/ all mounting hardware and a modded H2E $2900
