From what I hear, the 38r is very good. But there could be some custom built one that is better. I am going to be upgrading my injectors and turbo pretty soon as well. Would you pm me some info on your stage 2's? Any general info about them as far as power gains, price etc...

my buddy has a 38r on his truck. only stage 1's and a couple other small things. the truck will wrap a 30psi boost gauge faster than you can blink an eye

you can run a van turbo with stage II's which works pretty good but for the price you just can't beat the 38r unless beans can start pumpin out the d66's for the sd

It is a direct bolt on replacement. You might consider getting a high flow outlet if you want to get rid of your EBPV. Also new pedestal o-rings.
