Turbo Differences?

My 2000 model 7.3 has a bad turbo in it. Instead of rebuilding or buying a new one, I was thinkin of takin the turbo off of my 02' to replace it, then buy a new one for my 02'. My questions is...what is the difference between the Garret 38r and the H2E? Those are the two that I always hear about.

H2E will take forever to spool and really is only necessary if you want to push beyond the 500HP range. The 38R will support you up to a little over 500HP and spool similar to stock.

Sounds like the 38r is the more realistic buy to me...?

Schwitzer S300. Comes in a variety of compressor/turbine wheel sizes so just shoot Swamp's an email on what mods you have and what you will be using your truck for and they'll give you a custom build quote.

This is what they gave me:

custom H2E mounting kit for early 99 (you'll need an H2E mounting kit as well. Swamp's Webstore - Hypermax mounting kit (only), no turbo included)

Custom S300
Swamp's Webstore - 62-66mm custom S300

Mine had 66mm inducer, 74mm turbine wheel, 1.15 A/R turbine housing, and it bolts right up to the H2E mount kit.


For an auto, they will give you a larger inducer as the autos keep the boost up.

This seems like something to explore as well. I think I will email them and see what they have to say. Thanks for the info.

With such a big upgrade project a turbo is, might as well evaluate your options

The GTP38R is a great turbo too, it's just the problem nowadays is finding a place that actually has them in stock.

Gotta be careful with turbos on eBay, because there are A LOT of fakes on there.
