Gt38r on mild truck

Got a late 99 with the zf6, has 4" turbo back straight pipe and boost and egt gauges. Its a hard working truck, pulls a lot of trailers and sees a lot of empty miles too. Is it possible to run the 38R with stocks injectors to help get more air to the motor? Also thinking of getting a php 6pos chip. Would I have to get more than the standard tunes with the new turbo?

You won't see benefit from the turbo without the tuning. What more are you trying to get out of the truck?

What EGT numbers are you seeing now? Ya it'll help but you may not need it with a good tow tune. It will certainly improve performance though

if you want lower egts for less cash i would say do a ebpv delete and free flowing outlet.
thats what i plan on doing next and it lowers egts around 100 degrees for about 160 bucks.

and a custom tow tune from any of the reputable dealers such as php, gearhead, tony wildman etc would lower egts compared to a off the shelf programmer or chip.

Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

I really don't want to delete the ebpv because it gets real cold here in Wyoming and the valve really seems to help warm the truck up faster on those -20 mornings.

So the turbo would only be advantageous if I was going to upgrade injectors.

I have basically the same things on my truck that you do. I do have a flashpaq on it that is going to be on its way to the junk pile soon. But anyhow, I did notice an increase in power. I did the ebp delete as well. I'm very happy with the increase and can't wait to see what happens with a good chip in it. I would do it gain. It is pricey though but IMO it was worth it

Increase in power from a new turbo or the ebpv delete?

Hard to say about the ebpv delete since I did that and the 38r at the same time, but the turbo was a pretty big improvement
