turbo/injector??

I just found out a s366 and hybrid sticks would work great for what I would like to do but...... now come back down to earth and see it would be way too much $$ for me right now just to have fun and kick some dodge buts... anyway what would just a 38r and good tunes do for me or would I have to put sticks in now??

How much better is a 38r over my stock??

You won't see a huge increase in power because for that you need more fuel. It helps spool better and lower egts but the chip is where the power will come from up until you run out of fuel.

So I should just stick with my stock turbo until I get injectors? I am doing the regulated fuel return, oil cross over and tunes. scan tool is a must. I am thinking PHP tunes

That is up to you. You will need both so doing them at the same time or turbo first is just a matter of timing.

thanks, I am still trying to figure out if the $2000 cost for a s366 is worth the extra over the $1500 for the 38r.

The T4 kits certainly give you more options but it is a much larger up front cost. They also don't appear stock like the 38R does.

I wanted a 38R but now I am thinking modded H2e...

I am going to try and do turbo, injectors, hpop, and regulated fuel return at the same time. Saving my pennies now...

Good luck.

From what I have read both will do it but the drive pressures will be higher with the 38R.
