Got 38R???

Got a 38R.....hope this turbo spools quickly and whistles!!!




With my 6spd I can lug it....hope it handles that without surging.












Hope my girlfriend doesn't find out how much the turbo was....or the fresh overhauled engine actually cost!

Re: Got 38R???

With all my mods, my truck runs awesome with a 38r on it, plus I get these WTF? looks when driving down the road. With my DP tuner in 60-tow mode spool up is not an issue.

Re: Got 38R???

I have no problem spooling with a 6 speed at 5K altitude. It comes on faster than the stocker and has never surged on me, even if I lug it
