Pretty sure its in the 600 range, but HOT egt's from what i remember reading. If i could do it over again i would have apent the money upfront and got a better turbo setup.
1350 gtp38r
500 DI uppipes
250 Intercooler boots
250 WW2 for 38R
= 2350, coulda dropped a little more coin and had a much better setup that is rebuidable. Whats your plans?

Better is a relative term. A 38r might be a great turbo for whatever he has in mind.

Not ideal for 600hp though

I agree, thats why I asked what his plans were. Its not a bad turbo, just not the best if your planning on big injectors.

500hp - 550hp range is what I'm looking for.
230/100, 38r with riffraff billet wheel, head studs, no limit tunes F8, CTS for gauges to include fuel pressure and egt, 4" exhaust stainless, built trans, 6637 air filter.
I'm also thinking about replacing the bellowed up pipes when I install the turbo, should I?
I have a brand new stock fuel pump if needed I'm thinking about doing the twin stock fuel pump setup. I'm sure I left a couple of things out.
Thanks for all the great info thus far.

You are at the limit for a 38r really.

A better setup would be an H2e or an S467 turbo with those injectors.... Even a gated S366 would be fine or Swamp's 6674 which is a s300 chassis.

If you want longevitity you don't want the turbo to be the cork in the system without a wastegate

That said... The 38r with the wheel will do that power level. Yes you should do bellowed up pipes while you're there

I would seriously be thinking about a different setup for the money your going to spend. Back to my previous post, your looking at roughly 2400ish in a 38r setup and being right at the top of its capabilities. I plan on a similar route but was thinking 250/200's and a gated 468 from irate when funds allow

Schlutzer what brand up pipes?
Do they make a stainless set?
Are there performance up pipes?
