isn't a new one just a little bit more than that?Found one for sale and wondering what they are worth and if they are any good???? I am havnig problems with mine and the surgin issue. Would this be a good improvment for the truck in my sig??? they are asking $1100.00. Let me know what you guys think
So the GTP38R isnt a "big spool" turbo. It will just spool smoother and get your boost up faster?? Correct? And how does the GTP38R do on surging, cause thats what i would really like to get rid of. My stock turbo goes nuts. And i cant tow anything now with out having problems. And i know i can tighten my waste gate, but that wont competely get rid of it. And thats what i want to do.We just did an install for the next issue of Diesel Builder on a '99 F-350 with right at 200,000 miles on the new PowerMax kit from Garrett with a GTP38R. His baseline run made 238 horsepower and about 550 on torque with a Superchips (early model one). He was making 23 pounds of boost and after installing the Powermax Without adjusting the wastegate or programming he was making 19, however, it now spools up alot faster and feels strong. The ball bearing GT has an 88mm compressor wheel and the stock unit is 80mm. It feels smoother, runs smoother and whistles loud. We decided to bolt on a MBRP Cool Duals to see if we could get some good power out of it. But we will have to wait, we are going to the dyno monday to get the final numbers.
I will post them when we get back.
As for the price, I think the entire PowerMax kit is about 1800 NEW.
