What do you mean by it gets warm? Are your EGT's getting to hot? A 38r is a direct swap if you still have your stock turbo now.

A 38R would work great for you as far as a drop in replacement goes. If you have plans to go with bigger injectors in the future, you may want to look into converting to a T4i style setup. We offer the Bell HFSB if you are interested in going that route.

Then you would be perfectly fine with a GTP38R.

I have had a lot of newer and fancier trucks and I love my 7.3 noise or not lol If im gonna go through with putting the 38r on would it be wise to go with a wicked wheel for it

wicked wheel for the 38r makes it a little more efficient.
you can read up on it and decide if you want it or not.
relatively cheap mod that gets you a little more boost and better power curve

edit: i dont know fi you went wicked wheel gen2 for the stock turbo or the 38r. they make both now.
i think a wicked wheel gen 2 with stage twos would be a little hard on the stock turbo after a while.
