upgrading injectors... which turbo ?

Upgrading to swamps 200/200% hybrid injectors, banks techni-cooler intercooler and also a turbo but not sure which one would be the best for my truck I have it narrowed down between the Garrett gtp38r or the Holset H2e but if y'all have any better ideas for a turbo please comment ... also It says I won't need to upgrade my fuel system or my hpop on the swamps website but I figured I would see if some of y'all on here maybe thought other wise?... Also is there anything else I'm missing that I might need to do along with these upgrades? .... besides a new turbo mounting system if needed.
Thanks in advance

what cary said. I have a 71mm h2e which is a little to big and laggy for anything smaller than a bigger hybrid, but the 66mm version has proven a good match with 160/100 all the way to 250/200.

Why not a 38R?
Both are proven turbos, but one costs $1000 less.
Unless he's looking to go a lot bigger at some point, the 38R seems a better option.
Your fuel system will be fine, & assuming your hpop is in good shape, it will be good enough.

38r was designed as a stock inj replacement turbo for a SD, its ok for stage 1's but a modded h2e will kill it. Larger Inj's..you need more air and a stronger turbo. Add up all the costs including bellowed uppiped, evb delete base van outlet etc.

The 38R is a good option for that sized injector, simply because its drop and go... You can install it in a few hours and your good.

The H2e, or Modded H2e is also a good option, its a bit harder to install, but its one of the toughest turbos you can put in our trucks.

Ive put well over 100k on a 66mm H2e with many runs to 50-55psi and its not once skipped a beat.

The cost of the H2e can be offset by selling all the factory crap you dont need.

I agree both are a good option.
& anyone who can install the turbo could delete the ebvp themselves for practically nothing.
Assuming they have the ability to read and operate Google.

38r is still a throw away turbo and the turbine side/shaft is to small Imo. H2e is a tough turbo, and really having the t4i/t4 mounts makes pulling the turbo so much quicker. Its now a 15 minute deal to have the turbo off my truck even with a s475 race cover (have to disassemble turbo to fit it out.) I never recommend a 38r unless its a stock inj truck or 160/stock.
