GTP38R?

Looking into replacing the stock turbo, other mods in sig, would the GTP38R be a good choice or is there something that may be a little better? I usually tow a toyhauler that's close to 10K#'s, with stock turbo the EGTs get a little warm going up the hills, the tow setting on my tunes is kind of "doggy", so I usually just leave it on daily unless the EGTs get too warm. Runs great with the trailer on flat ground, but blows a little smoke with the slow spool up when not towing.

I personally think it would work fine. May look at adding the 1.15 housing to keep the EGTs even lower. But the standard 38R housing is an improvement over stock .84.

Sd66 turbo but 38r should do you good too. I am pretty sure the 1.0ar housing is better for towing iirc

your temps seem high for post turbo iirc. Why did you not install the probe pre-turbo like it should be. Your temps will be very inaccurate and vary too much from accurate readings; they are not consistant. I think your temps translate to above 1250 deg iirc. I would not trust the temps from that location.

The probe was installed already when I bought the truck. It translates to roughly 200-250 degree difference with this set up. It is very consistent because it always measures from the same point in the pipe. You just have to modify the "limits" in you brain.

this is very very true.

no, it does not necessarily translate to 200-250* difference. Some trucks it's 300* difference. Some it's over 300* difference. Some trucks its less than 200* difference. The probe in that location is also slow-reacting. I wouldn't trust that spot for accurate egt reading at all.
