Question Turbo questions....stock vs New

Here I go again with more questions............
My stock turbo has enough surge for 2 trucks
I know the housing and wicked wheel would fix that, but how hard is that to do? Special tools?
Would it be worth the extra money to just get a better turbo? Eventually I'd like the hp #'s to be in the high 400's to low 500's, but I mainly drive/tow and only race to prove a point.

If your wantin to get those kind of power numbers down the road your goin to need a bigger turbo not just a wicked wheel and housing. Prob. look at a
H2e. Ive heard they are the best for the biggest numbers. Or a ball bearing tubro of some kind if you dont want to spend the cash on a H2e

thanks, the H2e sounds good and I know someone that has one for sale, but I guess a special pedestal is needed to mount it that costs 1700.00?

I'd go with the 38r, its a direct drop in and i believe it can handle up to 500 hp....

i would have to agree.. a stock h2 flows less air than a 38r. but modded h2 is a different story.

you should be happy with either choice

With the power you are looking to end up with, the Garrett GTP38R is the best option. It will support 400-500 HP and have lightning quick spool up as well. Let me know if I can help.
