Any GTP38R's sold with WW already installed?

Had almost saved enough $ to buy a new GTP38R, but then I had to replace ball joints and hubs Anyways, is there anywhere that sells the GTP38R already with a WW installed, or do you have to buy separate, or would I even benefit from a WW? Mods in sig
TIA

You know I haven't seen the turbo with one but I haven't really dug into the turbo market too much. I had to put one on mine cause when I put my ts chip on while pulling a load the turbo would do the surge deal and was chirping very loudly. I got the regular ww and it eliminated that plus it added a nice whistle. They just came out with a gen2 ww that people are saying they gain 5-7 lbs but gotta fork out like 220 bucks or something like that.

I am kindof torn between just getting that WW2 for existing stock turbo, or getting the 38R. This last time taking the toyhauler out it was real windy and it was the first time I've heard my turbo surge since I've done the stage 2 injectors and beans tune. I do LOVE the turbo whistle, about the only thing I am jealous of on a friends '03 6.0, that turbo whistle was sweet on that thing. Leaning towards the 38R just because last oil analysis done showed that the turbo may be going out, I haven't pulled intake to check thrust yet.

It's very noisy... when Brian went from a stock to 38R in his 2000 (manual ew) it got annoyingly loud on the way to work. I dunno if it's just his truck, but after putting the 38R wheel in the noise was extremely bearable during highway speeds but still growled when he put his foot on it. So nice...

No problems with mine. I don't think it sounds much louder than my e99 setup I had. IDK. If dieselsite has them in stock Bob will put one on for you. Just ask. At the time when I got mine the 38R was on backorder so I just got the WW2 from them and the turbo from Riffraff.
