The only turbo other than a stock reman available for an early99 is the D66 turbo from Beans Diesel, $1325. It is a stock turbo that is machined out to 66mm(stock is 60mm) and uses a 1.0A/R(stock is .84 A/R) exhaust housing. It uses a billet exhaust turbine wheel, it looks beefy! It is good for 40psi of boost and is a direct bolt on. Nothing needs to be changed to install this turbo. It is a great turbo. I ran it for some time and it is now another .org members truck by now. I used it for towing, drag racing and sled pulling. It flows enough air to clean up a decent amount of fuel.

A TN BB($1550) or GT38R($1550) will need to have the following parts changed out: turbo pedestal($100), turbo intake Y($100), intake plenums($75) and up pipes($170). Not that hard but a PITA and it will cost you some money however it will run good.

Now you have to decide.

Tell me more about your truck or just fill in your signiture. Spool up is never going to be as fast as the stock turbo. All other turbos are larger therefore tha parts are heavier. Tuning can help the spool up.
