Sure. You are moving to a 1.15 turbine housing form the .84 housing.

So how does it compair to a Garret or H2e performance wise? Will it flow as much cfms?

In other words, early next year I'm gonna do a turbo swap, Would this be a more cost effective route to got with the mods in my sig plus big oil and headstuds down the road? The truc is a d/d that I do tow with every so often, plan on taking to the trac now and again, and maybe some occational truck pulls.

if you plan on going with more mods just save and get yourself a turbo that will suite you from the begining rather then waste money on a turbo that will not. i dont knwo what your planning on but if any of it requires a Garret BB or H2E the van turbo will not suffice.

Thats what I was woundering, if, with the mods in my sig, plus big oil and head studs and also maybe hybrids down the road, if the van turbo would be adiquit?

While we arfe on the topic of forced induction, how does the GTP42r compaire to the 38r? I tried looking for it on the web but couldn't really find anything.

hybrids + van turbo = no

Go with a modded h2e. Do as I say, not as I do.

As far as the 42r to 38r question, there is no comparison. 42r can support around 600hp. 38 is winding down in the 500-525hp range.

Hows the 42r do towing though? I don't know if I'm gonna tak this truck that high in hp's. PLan on getting another toy for that down the road.

so if I stay with the stg2 singles I would be fine with a 38r? or an H2e
