Upgrading my turbo -which one?

So my project for the winter is putting 238cc hybrids and an upgraded turbo in my '99 7.3. The problem is I have no idea what I should choose for a turbo!
Right now I'm looking at maybe doing a 38R garret turbo but was wondering what you guys thought for other options and why. The truck is mostly a daily driver but I sled pull with it all summer long. The truck currently has a TS 6-postion with PHP tunes, and intake and exhaust. I do eventually plan on putting head studs in it but that probably won't happen until next year.

'99 F350 xlt eclb srw auto 7.3 4x4: S&B, 4" Flowmaster, A-pillar gauges, TS 6position w/ PHP, HPx, Wicked Wheel, 33" Destination M/Ts*2011 MATPA Street Diesel champion!
'95 F250 xlt rc srw auto 7.3 4x4:260cc inj, K&N, A-pillar gauges, fass, T-500, BD modded turbo, Boost fooler, TS 6position, modded IDM, traction bars, 35" Fierce Attitudes, 8" mitre cut, D60
'02 F250 lariat ecsb srw 6-speed 7.3 4x4

Is it an early 99 or a 99.5 ? If its a early 99 you cant just bolt on a 38R, the early 99's basically have an OBS motor. You would have to swap parts like the up pipes, turbo mounting flange, pedestal, intake spider, intake manifolds off of a 99.5-03 7.3 motor ( I think there is some other parts too but I forgot ) to get a 38R on there.

Could also consider a T4i style mounting system. Would open your possibilities of turbos up to a whole new level, especially if you plan on shooting for even more power in the future.

As far as drop in's, the 38R and by the sounds of it, soon a new drop in from Precision better than the 38R (I don't know much about this new turbo other than that).

yeah i've had 38r and and now run an s366 and thats what i would recommend. after you buy a 38r with bellowed up pipes, non ebpv pedistal and high flow outlet you could have a s366 sittin on irates t4. much better design with ease to grow. i would even try the s467 with those 238's. other good turbo would be the gqssb from wop. doesn't look like youre gonna have those 238's turned up very high if you don't plan on studs. studs, valve springs, pushrods, fuel system, tranny. but thats just my input

The only thing to consider is your tech when you pull... You will more then likely get bumpped with a T-4 type turbo... a 38R might pass as a stocker and you can still pull in the normal class for your area.

T4 or T4i kits are HEAD and SHOLDERS better then a 38R otherwise.
