Re: turbo question
I am no turbo expert but in my recent findings from the nation on my setup you have one problem with this senario, this turbo wont work on your truck because if its an early 99 like mine you have the smaller turbo intake and intake runners. Also the turbo pedistal is different, up pipes and so is the intake spider.
This is an easy fix if you find the newer intake, spider and up pipes of a 99.5-03 they bolt right up. I just bought a GTP38R, but almost ended up with the BD turd of a turbo (dont even ask) but these guys here steer'd me clear of that mess and I am sure I wont be disapointed.
