238/100 injectors need a turbo. EARLY 99!

Im about to order the parts for my build. so far T500 HPOP, 238/100 injectors, now looking for a turbo to go on it. I know the only bolt on is the d66 but i dont think that will handle the injectors the way i want. Looking for 500-550 hp if possible. I was going to go with the H2E and they are about 2400 for the hypermax and turbo kit. does anyone know of a different turbo that will pull those numbers for less $$$? or is there another turbo that would perform better (quicker spool). heard a lot about the 38R but i dunno if its capable of the power im looking for. Also im worried about turbo lag from both these turbos. This is my DD and rarely pull, Only when i have my 1200 LB RZR in the bed.

I like the BELL HFSB turbo for 1350 but they want 1800 for the hypermax mount kit and that blows me away. not really sure why its so expensive for the kit. is there a cheaper way to get the hfsb onto the early 99?

The 38R and billet wheel will handle that very nicely. IMO, 238's and a 38R is a great setup.

The e99 will need a few other things to run the 38r, about all the same stuff as the obs

I have debated the 38r but I haven't seen many in the 550 range with it. Seems like others go with a bigger turbo. Also I have read that it's somewhat laggy, I want a good all around dd not just high hp at high rpms, I rarely take my truck past 2500. Here is the video of the turbo that makes me want the hfsb. This truck hits 35+ psi before my truck could even get to 15-20 psi. And if I have to fork over the cash for the hypermax conversion I might as well get a step up from what every one else does. So what else do you reccomend besides the 38?

Mine isn't laggy at all. .

The lag can be taken care of in tuning.

Mount kits are expensive because a lot of time goes into them... I built my own..









Lot of time into that

The main reason I say 238's and a 38R is such a great setup is they easily make 500hp for suck a low price.

No need for a $800-1000 HPOP, or a $1700 T4 mount setup.

You can find a l99-03 spider, up pipes, pedestal, and 3" intakes pretty cheap sometimes. I bought all the above for $175.

Also, once you go with bigger injectors like 250's, now you looking at a stealth SRP 1.1 or an adrenaline HPOP. And really should seriously consider a T4 mount.
