How much boost?

My Garrett 38R with the 1.0 housing should be here next week. How must boost will these things make, and how much can my motor handle w/o headstuds? I'll be driving from Montana to Alaska via California in 3 weeks, and i really don't want to blow the truck up in Canada, lol!

with the 530 hybrids... probably 40 lbs... good idea would be headstuds...

with stock injectors I wouldn't worry about it...

I'll be installing the injectors and the turbo at the same time. Headstuds are on the list, but the money tree is out of season right now...

35-40psi with the hybrids. You can adjust the wastegate on the charger to blow open where ever you'd like though. Adjust to 32-33psi and you should be pretty safe. You going with different tuning for the new injectors?

Pick up one of those turbomaster wastegate controllers... then it is easy to adjust...

You should 100% consider a 1.15 housing for that turbo. You will see lower boost numbers, cooler EGT's and less chance for surge. With the hybrids you will need new tunes, I would recomend DP tuner or the likes. Your new injectors will not run right without single shot tuning.

Yeah, I'll be getting some custom tunes for the Hybrids. The local diesel shop can burn any TS tune available, has anyone used TS?

I see how it makes it easy to adjust your boost, but I didn't really understand how it is so much better than the can style... $150 seems kinda steep just for ease of adjustment. Am I missing something?

You don't have to have it. Just makes it much easier.. and it keeps the wastegate shut better... the stocker will bleed a little..
