the 38 R is gonna have to be a full conversion for your truck. it will not fit without the following....late 99 and up pedistal, up pipes(or bellowed pipes), Y pipe(or cfm+ type intake manifold) and the three inch intakes, PLUS the 38R turbo....
the 38R turbo is ball bearing, so you cannot just rebuild it say something goes wrong with it. you have to buy the center section at nearly 800 bux, versus a rebuild for the d66 or no limit tuning version they call a Brute 66 turbo.
Id go with the cheaper option, as I did with my truck. with the 160/100s your setup will look exactly like mine. and your numbers will be right on par with the numbers in my sig. You will be happy. be sure to get good tuning for your setup. I recomend PHP and their hydra chip or tony wildman(I have both their tunes on my truck and I love them both), but no limit tuning is good, as is matt from gear head.
