would be hard to say, they are quite comparable if the 38r has the 1.15


you can't go wrong either way though

400hp? The 38r will much cheaper and will give you some room to grow.

thanks so far from everyone. i was looking at the 38r untill i booked my appointment wit BTS for June 16th, 8am. talked to Brian and he suggested the H2e instead and said they could install while the tranny is already out. They said it would be easy. I usually do all my own work, injectors and such, but after tranny and turbo i am coming home through Colorado and am going to meet up with Jody from DP to custom tune my F6. so all will be done and hopfully my PMS will be satisfied..........Thanks again.... Sorry i will have to take my sh** eating grin and my BTS to Canada after but, it must be done.....

You will love the H2e... Might upgrade to the late 99 intake manifolds while your there...

Never mind... I thought you had a OBS...
