Early 99 turbo upgrade

What do you think is the best route to go on upgrading the turbo on my early 99? My goal is somewhere around 425 to 450. I've been thinking about the beans D66 because it is fairly cheap and just drop it in and go. Or should I get the h2e kit? Let me know what you think.

There are lots of choices and if that's the HP range you want to be in then save yourself the extra $1000.00 and get the D66. Just ask Ryan and he can set u up with the rest of the parts to get you there. I'm only going the GTP38R because I found all the parts to mount it to my e99 for $175 from a wrecked truck.

I have read that the D66 can support 500 hp . Is that true or is 450 the max on these things?

I'm sure it can. Just call him, email, and ask Ryan.

Look at a t4 kit. The d66 is a good turbo but can be maxed out fairly easy, h2e kit is t4i and only fits certain turbos so its a pain (trust me, I have to have a turbo custom made for my needs). T4 will have way more options.

I completely agree, but for the HP range the OP wants the D66 will get there no problem and save $1000.00 and you can use that to get T-500 and regulated return fuel or custom tunes on a TS type 6pos.

Yeah I would love to have 600 hp but who wouldn't . It just would not be practical for me being this is my dd and I will be towing a 10000 # fifth wheel. With that being said I think 450 would be a great hp range and I will have fun with that. Now maybe one day we may do a serious upgrade but that would be way down the road. Maybe if I found a good deal on a t4 before I bought the D 66 I would go that . But do you think the D66 would last along time as far as durability ?

I'm sure it would as long as you you use a good quality synthetic oil. I use Amsoil but that's just me.

Funny you say that. That's what I used to use for the first couple years. For a full synthetic I could never quite get to 10k miles without a noticeable decreasee in performance and a noisier engine. It may work good for you though. The rotella has gone up in price alot around here so it wasnt that much morefor me with a discount I get on Amsoil. At least for this winter I'm trying out Amsoils new 5W30HD. So far I like it, engine is much quieter and starts quicker too. Its fairly cold in NW Ohio. I'm gonna do an oil analysis at 8k and see how its holding up.
