turbo for stage 2s

Im planning a winter build for my 2000, that will include turbo, sticks, fuel system, and possibly an HPOP.

My plan is to go with a set of stage 2s frome rosewood. My big concern is that Ill need a snail, that will not only help clean up the sticks, but will also keep the temps down Towing our 16k Horse trailer.... staright bolt in would be my prefrence.

What kind of power are you aiming for? Is towing 16k your typical use for the truck?

Im looking to hit the 400sh mark but am not really too concerned with the numbers.... Im just getting bored with the truck.

As far as the 16k trailer I tow it maybe 10-15 times a year going to field trials with horses and bird dogs, and maybe another 5-6 times a year my wife will use it to go to horse shows.

Ideally we would have a dually to do this but when we bought the trailer we already had the truck. I am trying to figure out how to swing a dually in the next year but this truck still needs to be able to do it.

I move hay and feed around with it 2-3 days a week which might be 1k in the bed or 12k on the gooseneck. this truck is the work horse on our farm as well as my daily driver so it needs to be dependable.

With proper tuning your stock turbo will be fine.

The 38R would be the only drop-in replacement that I would recommend. The QSSB turbo we offer from Bell Turbo would be an awesome option for a towing application, but it requires a mount kit, so a little more labor intensive when compared to the 38R.
