Start saving some money, your wasting time and money by spending that much on the up pipes, for less money you could pick up Irates T4 up pipes and then you open up alot of possibilities for turbos. In your other post you asked about doing a D66 which is roughly 1300.

So you add that plus the 700 in up pipes and for only another 200 you could be into an Irate kit with S366 charger which will support up to Stage 3 injectors (at that point you have alot of reading to do and money to spend because all the supporting mods that come into play). You need to figure out your power goal and then start reading there are countless threads based upon your goal that will list out the mods you need and how much money you will be into it. Its an expensive addiction so you better be prepared up front for that.

Yeah . Idk what too do . I'm not looking for a race truck, I got another rig for speed .
I just want some more.
I was looking in to the whole garret convertion that seemed a little more logical to spend money on.

If your talking going to a 38r its a waste of money for you, you will have to change, up pipes, plenums, pedestal, in addition to the turbo which will put you in the same boat as above.

You might just want to invest in a PHP Hydra or other chip and try the standard tunes to see if that wakes your truck up enough for your liking its going to get expensive quickly after that.

its cheaper to piece the parts together than buy that kit.

you can get the parts necessary for a late 99 conversion easy and wayyyy cheaper.
bellowed up pipes 400 many vendors carry these.
intake manifold ebay probably 50-80 bucks.

pedestal late 99+ 100-120 bucks.
3 inch intake plenums ebay 50-150 bucks.
manifold boots 100 bucks.

a stock late 99 turbo ebay 300 bucks and if you want to rebuild it add another 90 bucks to that.

thats way cheaper than 2500 bucks.

how much more horspower do you want? a stock turbo with a billet wheel can handle up to 400hp. most guys never even go above 350hp.

but then again all that is more than 700 for bellowed up pipes..
if you are running a generic chip/programmer and havent got a billet wheel yet, id get new tunes and the wheel and see how you like it.

I think he wants to go to a 38r since there wouldn't be any gain in going from a e99 to l99 stock turbo.

I was lucky that my up pipes aren't leaking otherwise I would have been in the same boat with expensive e99 up pipes. If you read the threads you will quickly see a lot of post about do it one and do it right so that is why I would still say go to the T4 setup if you are planning on keeping it a while. You can keep an eye on the classifieds it seems like a kit comes up for sale every month but it goes quick.

Between 300 and 400 HP would be sufficient.
What I think I'm going to do is change the exhaust housing on the turbo to a 1.0.
And just replace the donut baskets on the up pipes .then put a good chip .

I was told the the exhaust housing is like a beer bottle and that how it flows. Real restricted.

Changing the housing will free up a dyno proven 20 HP and lower egts 200 degrees . And then a 80 horse chip or something would probably make me happy.

And when changing housing and lowering the egts the donut gaskets will last longer ( they have lasted 241xxx) so I imagine they will last just as long. ..


Then eventually if its still not a enough I'll look it to upgrading more. Lol
