Question on van turbo

How much performance would i get with the van turbo over the stock one or is it better to save the money and put toward a Gtp38r.

Re: Question on van turbo

What are you looking to do with it? If you can get one rebuilt and ready for like $300 then go for it.

It is nowhere near the performance of a 38r.

I love mine for towing. But if I was going for performance I would go 38r

Re: Question on van turbo

i like my van turbo, it does tow well but if your looking for more there are many options. 38r does its job very well i hear.

On the hunt for another truck....
