Re: Newbie Turbo Questions
Is there a big difference in power between the three?
Yes.. and a large price difference..
1.0 ex housing - $200-250 + $80 rebuild.. It flows well but with a chip you will run out of steam pretty quick.
Van Turbo - $400-600.. Flow more Air. Lower EGT's.. Mine is a bit smokey if I bog down.. it will billow smoke..
38R - $1500. Flows lotsa air and has the option to hit 475-500HP with supporting fuel and injection mods.. Does not smoke alot w/ proper tuning. The downside of this turbo is that it is pricey.
These turbos are great turbos for DD and people that do not plan on injector upgrades.
I may catch some crap for saying it but I am happy with my truck b/c it is a work truck. If I wanted to play and really get some nice numbers I would get the 38R.. but the sticker shock was too much for me.
And I got my van turbo w/ a ceramic coated exhaust housing for $430
Got any questions throw them out or PM me.
