Need help. Best turbo upgrade for 7.3l

I have done a lot of reading on this myself I've found that the gt38r turbo has the best turn out for a direct bolt on but if your studded and can fork out the money to buy the h2e conversion setup which is bad a$$ but just depends on how deep you wanna get into it....

If I do the h2e do I need to do head studs? Didn't think the 7.3 had problems with that. And i keep reading people doing their rods. with these teo turbos would that be something else i have to do. also I have read that h2e you get it customized. Who do you get to do that? Price is no issue for me for that turbo just don't want to fork out money for one and regret not getting the other one lol. Another thing I wanted ask to was since I have done my injectors it is way louder. Could this be due to a weak hpop? Or just the way it should sound

For a direct bolt on I would go with a gtp38r. I wish I had gone with a t4 kit so that I would have more turbos to choose from. I do like my 38r though for being relatively cheap and easy to install compared to a t4 style turbo.

The easiest route to go is the GTP38R. It is a ball bearing, direct bolt-on turbo. It does have it's limitations however.

The other was to go is to use a T4 style turbo. With this setup you will need different up-pipes. There are a lot of turbo options once you switch over to this setup.

Here is a link to all of the turbos we carry for the 7.3L... Turbochargers - Turbo and Charge Air Upgrades - 1994.5 - 2003 Powerstroke 7.3L Truck - Ford Powerstroke

Let me know if you have any questions.

If I decide to go with the t4 setup should I go with the h2e? N if so should I get it customized like I keep hearing people say or just go with the off the shelf version. I also don't know where to get it customized.

I kinda want to go with the t4 setup with the h2e but would want it customized And I don't know if the setup I have can handle it. Someone was talking about head studs. Would I need to do them? N what about my stock rods can they handle it?

The H2E is a good setup. You can just go with the off the shelf version.

Since you have a 2000 you will have forged rods. They should handle the power just fine.

Head studs are always a good addition. Do some research into what other people have done with similar setup's. There is a plethora of knowledge on all of these forums.
