I have a 38r with the default 1.0 wastegated housing and stock sticks. Slightly less boost but it's higher CFM. Spools great and will allow me to upgrade sticks whenever I stop wasting money on other junk. One thing to help you out if you do get one, tighten the wastegate down before installing the turbo, it was practically open when I got it.

i have run the 38R and now the GQSSb with 250cc/100% hybrids. loved the 38r, but love the GQSSB more. spool is about the same. i havent looked back on the 38r one bit.

see i am going to be running slightly smaller 238/100. i am glad to hear that you had the setup and liked it, that is what i am going to go with. do you really think the difference between the two is worth $1500? Just wondering. Also from what i am hearing its a total difference between running bigger sticks and turbo than stock. True? I think stock is ok but slight pussy. Not enough for me

I definitely think it is worth it. I would also suggest contacting Irate Diesel and talk to Jake about a turbo kit from him, would save u some money also compared to GQSSB. wide Open Performance.is great to deal with too. Getting a T4 mount alllows more turbo options than just getting a 38r. I wish i would have gone with the GQSSB in the first place. U will have less back/drive pressure with the GQSSB or equivalent
