Why? You could spend like 6-700 hundred on a stock turbo or spend 1300 on a real performance upgrade with a warranty. I wouldn't put 1 penny in a stock turbo

Alright thanxs for the suggestion. Is it worth it to get the 38r garret or is it better to get a diff brand that is better for a 2001 7.3?

Re: stock turbo work ?

The 38r is a great drop in turbo. There are also great turbos available which utilize a different mount such as T4 and T4i. You may spend more at first on these other turbos because of the mounting kit, but there are a lot more turbo options available with that style of mount. My personal favorite is the Bell HFSB. Highest quality turbo you can get in my eyes.

38r sets the standard for drop ins, I would try a sd66 though

I will say a 38r is one loud mofo, so you might take that into consideration

Re: stock turbo work ?

depends on what you are doing with it. For towing a ported housing will stop the surge and will tow well with some tunes, with the stock wheel. Like I said it just depends on your goal and how much you want to spend.

Re: stock turbo work ?

The new wicked wheel 2 does amazing things for a stock turbo. No housing required. But if you plan on doing any further upgrades I completely agree with the other guys. Dont spend money on a stocker just replace now. I'm at that place now.
