BD thruster 2

Hello I am looking to replace my turbo with a lil bit bigger one. I was looking at a bd thruster 2. have any of you guys been around them or have one I would like to know how they work. If I don't go with that I plan on going with that or the 38r. let me know what you guys think thanks for your help.

I put the BD thruster 2 on my 97 and have not been happy with it. My stock turbo with upgrated turbine housing got better boost and spooled faster.

It sounds pretty good on paper, but I've NEVER heard of someone actually owning one.
If I was low on funds I would do (did do) a van turbo.
If I had a little extra to spend I would go 38r

Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
