Turbo ????

My stocker just went by the way side, bunch of shaft play and a real bad noise now. so i need a replacement now. my question is what should i look at, i know i want to get rid of the surge issue, and mods are in sig with 127K on the motor. should i get an upgraded stock one with better bearings and a ats housing, or something like a gtp38r? thanks

Would the stock exhaust housing on the 38R give the OP what he wants? Or would he be better off changing it?

1.0 housing is all you need, IMO. Quick spool up and all around great driveability

pulled the turbo and will add pics later. but fins are pretty bad on the exhaust side ( missing chunks ) and bent on the intake side. I am looking at a 38r and adding a high flow exhaust outlet from ITP w/ ebp delete ped. does the high flow out let help that much?

The 38r is the way to go, though they are pretty hard to find right now. We have one available if you are interested.

Look for a 1.15 exhaust housing for it before you order the high flow outlet... Your running the same combo I was, but I was running 37's. I had surge issues with the 38r until I went with the 1.15 exhaust housing.

so i dont need the high flow outlet if i get a 1.15 housing. also i noticed that the rear of the pedestal has a bunch of oil build up on it and so does the left up pipe. does this mean my evbp piston is leaking?

and befor i buy anything, this is what i am looking to do. I dont want to do injectors, or big oil. I do tow pretty often and would like not to have any more surge. so befor i spend to much on a truck i may only have 1 to 2 more years maybe might see 200k. Is a rebuilt stocker with a ported housing going to do what iam looking for. because i dont see why a 38r is better if i need to get a 1.15 ar housing. Just trying to get the best bang for the buck and the 38r is pricey.

should i keep the truck and do the 38r or a simple fix and run to 150k and sell. i hate when big things break.
