Time for turbo?

Hey fellas,

I have gotten to a point where I may want to go to another level with my rig in terms of performance. It has 160k miles on it. Got the Hydra chip, exhaust, intake, etc. If I did want to get 38r turbo, what else do I have to do to the truck? HPOP? Injectors? Obviously custom tunes from PHP for sure. I want more power and lower EGTs and also more turbo whistle is always neat.

Thanks for any input.

you dont have to get injectors or hpop.

its an upgrade even on a stock truck. but it will help you fully utilize new injectors.

Just doing a turbo wont hurt the truck? I still have to get custom tunes from PHP correct?

When do you have to run injectors and HPOP?

The 38R is a drop in replacement turbo that will work just fine with stock injectors and HPOP. I have personally run that combination.

I can't speak for PHP's tuning, so you may want to get a hold of them and ask them if they modify tuning for just a 38R.

You only have to run bigger injectors and HPOP when you want to go above the power limits of stock injectors.

What sort of HP gain are we talking? Lower EGTs are a benefit as well, correct?

How much louder is this turbo?

The turbo as said is a direct drop in. It is a good bit louder than a stock turbo. mostly the off idle acceleration has a sound like a cartoon ghost would make if that makes any sense. sort of a howling noise but not really annoying if you like turbo noise.

no other mods would be needed for a 38R. I'm still running the tunes on my truck that were burned for the stock turbo as I am lazy and don't feel like sending my chip out to be running stock for a week or so....

No horsepower gain on an unchipped truck.

The truck is chipped! PHP Hydra and it works flawlessly. Do I need to adjust the waste gate or anything on the truck when I do this?

You still won't gain any real power until you go to bigger injectors. It will lower EGT's in the meantime though.

Understood. Stage 1 ejectors from BD diesel a good choice to couple that with the turbo?
