i have an 01 7.3 i just put the a gt38r turbo on and i noticed im still getting alot of blow off and surge!!! my question is do i need to run a blow off valve if so who sells them, and do u guys think i can run my old banks big hoss wastegate or is it the same as the wastegate that comes on the gt38r?
i have also recently bought a 38r and i'm having trouble. it only turns 23lbs of boost and sounds like its blowing a lot of air the truck runs really good empty but it feels like its under power with a heavy load. i have a big head wastegate and i've unhooked the hose to the gate trying to build more boost. a cant get an ideas from anyone on here. what kind of boost wil yours turn
