dusted wheel....spring upgrade option...

well had the duct off the turbo tuesday to throw in a reman injector(thanks Dave, the core is on its way back!!) and saw that the comp wheel is severly dusted!

so that means a bigger turbo come spring...being an e99 i have to change everything anyway....so my options(the only 2 ways i want to go) are as follows

38r with up pipes and headers from DI (this is the way i'm leaning)

h2e setup,with DI headers, modded or un modded?

the future plans for the truck will be modest hybrids(238-250cc) with all supporting mods.

the truck is a DD that tows a few times a year

any reason to go with the h2e over 38r? prob end up being close on cost by the time its done

CCLB with some stuff done .....

Re: dusted wheel....spring upgrade option...

Don't waste your money on stock mount turbo stuff.

H2E for now and you have all the options to go bigger if needed. I love the way my stock H2E tows.

I wouldn't waste money on headers unless you are looking for HUGE power. And 250's aint huge power.

Re: dusted wheel....spring upgrade option...

def go with the h2e..way less back pressure the nthe 38 will have if your up or over 500.

i bet 50% of the people buy the headers just for sound, they should lower egts a bit too. but other upgrades will do more...i'd go with bigger oil,or a fluid damper before that.

Re: dusted wheel....spring upgrade option...

there are alot more options with the h2e style setups but the 38r is a good turbo but with all the stock pipes, pedistol etc.

On the hunt for another truck....

so the general consensus is that the h2e is a better choice for a daily drivier/ occasional tower and will be better fitted to small hybrids?

Re: dusted wheel....spring upgrade option...

The 38R WILL spool faster than an H2E.
I don't have any problem with the spool up of my H2E. Of course I just had a stock OBS turbo before and they don't spool quite as quick as the SD's do. The H2E seems quicker than a stock OBS turbo to me.

If you never plan to go bigger on injectors and don't mind the extra cost (bellowed up pipes, non-ebpv pedestal) the 38R would do fine.
