turbo upgrade

looking for a turbo upgrade Garret 38r or holset h2e. or does anyone have any other ideas? looking for 400hp daily driver and reliable. i am running 175/146 singles from swamps diesel and a F6 dptuner, as well as 4" turbo back muffler delete and regulated fuel return, also an AFE stage 2 intake. but i have stock turbo and am looking to make things better. 430k kms (270k miles)
any reply with info would be great. what size wheels on turbo's as well as exhaust housings and such. 1800 dollars or 2500 dollars is not the issue i just want something that will perform well. i need the most power up to approx 70 mph and in the 1500 - 2000 rpm range.
thanks again for any reply's

I think a 38R is going to be your best bet. They are the most proven, durable turbo on the market for the 7.3L from stock to 450+hp. We have them on sale right now, let me know if I can help.

if the extra money is not problem the get the modded H2E setup... superior turbo, rebuilt almost anywhere. and you can upgrade to larger turbos if you want...

the 38r is a great turbo but if you want to upgrade then you will have to get an H2E mount....

My vote would be for the H2E as well. The 38Rs are decent turbos but if you push them to hard they like to start surging. And as stated above once you get the H2E set up you're ready for further upgrades.
