upgrade questions

OK,
I have a 2000 f350 and plan on doing some upgrades. I have been researching this site and a few others for ideas. I am a contractor and tow a trailer on a daily basis, anything from box trailers to flatbeds with with equipment 12-14k lbs. Truck has 185k on it and came with a k&n intake on it. My turbo is leaking oil and no longer spools, so this is what motivated me to do some upgrades. Sounds like I need to get gauges first. The isspro evs for $360 from diesel manors looks like a good deal. The dp f5 or f6 will work for the tunes I want and seem to be popular with other members. I will upgrade to a 4inch exhaust probably a magnaflow. I don't want it too loud. Now, the turbo is where I really need help. I rebuild the stock with ebpv delete and upgraded wheel and housing, go van turbo, direct bolt in or a complete system like the h2e. I want be getting new injectors for a while now. Probably not until I have problems with the stock ones. Please let me know what you think of my choices. I really don't know too much about these kinda things.

first of all get rid of the K&N thats probably what killed your first turbo, and lets hope it didnt do much to the motor...

second the 38R is a great upgrade and can make more power easy.... nice for towing.. its a BB version of the stock turbo.

Van turbo is a nice upgrade if you are gonna get sticks too..

anyway good luck.

What is the difference in the van turbo and a late/early 99 turbo?

I believe it has a much larger exhaust housing so its good to keep egt's way down for bigger injectors n such.

I have been doing research and this is what I have discovered about the van turbo. It has a larger exhaust housing 1.15 to the f series stock .84 and it doesn't have a waste gate. My question is if I installed this on my truck with stock injectors and no tuning will I be disappointed because it will take longer to spool due to the larger exhaust housing. Will top end with the van turbo be significantly better? I would love to hear some folks running van turbos chime in
