GT38R or a TN BB, both run about $1700. An insane amount of money would be what I paid for my turbo, $3K. Plus you will need tunes, guages , intake and exhaust. That is where it gets insane.

TN BB? What does the TN stand for...I know the BB is ball bearing. I ask because I have also been looking and was pretty set on the GT38R but I heard some people discussing the quality of it (or lack thereof) and if I spend that much money, it better be right.

TN is short for Turbonetics.

This one right here: Diesel

Not a problem. We were all new once and had to learn. That is why this site is here.

You'll have more lag going to a bigger turbo until you get bigger injectors. Larger turbine, more mass to get moving, takes longer to lite.

Say you were to get this turbo, would you hook the waste gate up or leave it unhooked like the stocker??

What other mods do you have. I have absolutely no turbo lag with my mods, as a matter of fact I let a mate with an almost stock 7.3 drive my truck recently and he had a problem with what he described as my "touchy throttle" on take off.
I did my modifications in stages and the most noticeable improvement to lag come from the intake and the ATS compressor housing.
