Installed Chip, now which turbo mods?

I have a ts 6 position chip in my truck, I have a riff raff OCR on the way, but when im floored i feel like its all motor and not much boost. What turbo mods do I need to get the most out of my chip and the stock turbo? Like a wastegate actuator, turbo wheel, ect? Truck is a late 99

Guys are pretty happy with 38R turbos, they are kinda noisy suckers though.

Im not having surging issues, but thats probably because my stock wastegate setup is preventing boost levels to make that happen?

Do you have gauges to tell you how much pressure you're getting? Also if your fuel system is all stock you could be running low on fuel pressure on the top end. My 100hp race tune only gets up to about 15-20 psi but my 65 hp dd tune hits 25.

My fuel system is for sure up to snuff. I have the riff raff frx installed. Recent fuel filter change, new fuel lines healthy hpop that does not leak, and 8 healthy injectors. It doesnt feel like its running out of fuel when im floored, it smokes a good bit on the higher tunes, i just think my stock turbo setup is doggin me. I need to install my boost gauge i have laying around for sure. I will also add that this morning i temporarily unplugged the red hose from the actuator, started my truck up and it ran pretty crappy, white smoke, and SES light on, just from idling in park. So i shut it off and re-connected and back to normal. I dont see how people gain anything from disconnecting the red line.

I can hit about 30 psi in 80dd . little more in race. You can tighten the stock waste gate
My truck runs smoother and the power is amazing with the billet wheel.
Best upgrade I've done besides the chip
