Re: 38r questions

about 500 or a little over 500 is max they will do from what i have read... There's always a little giggle gas you could throw in

525 is as far as we have pushed one, 600 with nos is achievable.

But at 600 with nos how long will it last. I have not seen any excessive wear around the 500 range.
For 600+ I would think something that makes more air would be a better fit.

Re: 38r questions

so whats would be the next step up from a 38r that still has a quick spool up? isnt the 38r a drop in too? or does it require an adapter kit? i was hoping for a drop in.... any suggestions

Re: 38r questions

38r is your only drop in option. You'd be suprised how much abuse a 38r can take. If you want more fuel only HP capablility you should start looking for a modded H2e or gt42 but those require different mounting kits. You also start losing streetability and towing capability if you start getting really big.

Best towing turbo I have run thus far is a modded H2e...
