Help With Turbo Choice

Need a little help in choosing a turbo. Been getting ALOT of turbo surge lately and figure if im gonna spend close to $500 for an ATS housing might as well spend the extra and get a bigger/better turbo while i got a little extra cash. Dont really have an idea of what to get though. I do alot of towing in the summer and plowing in the winter so looking at something for work and play. My mods are in my sig and sometime in the future would like to do injectors, HPOP, MAYBE fuel system, but that stuff wouldnt be for awhile...

So what do you guys suggest???

for the 75 dollars I would try the wicked wheel, if that doesnt cure it, drop a gtp38r in it, that is next on my to do list!

Standard H2e kit... Gives you something to grow with... Or a 38R with a 1.15 exhaust housing...

Would stock injectors be efficient enough for those turbos? and would one have to worry about breaking PMR's with either turbo with stock injectors?

Yes and no... A turbo change in and of itself will not gain you much if any HP, The turbo will allow you to burn the fuel better and cooler, but without tuning changes adding more fuel a simple turbo change will give you little gain in HP.

With stock injectors and a aftermarket turbo, your still going to max out at less then 350hp, very safe for PMR rods...
