Not with any regularity. I may be able to tie it in with work travel sometime and stop by. Or just make the trip.

Found the QSSB
Wide Open Performance - Online Store

Doesn's come out and say if the price is just the turbo or the whole kit. May give them a call tomorrow.

Re: 38R or H2E?

The h2e can be modded the gt38r can't,
the h2e can be replaced for 600 the gt38r can't
The h2e will have less bp at 500+
The gt38r bolts on 99.5 and up
The gt38 makes more noise, good for some, bad for others.
The gt38r can use a ebpv. Brake if you want.
Qssb is more similar to the h2e then a garret

Re: 38R or H2E?

Sometimes I wish I would of got the h2e I would of got the new up pipes when I swaped out the stock turbo. The 38r does sound pretty sweet though you could always add a gt47 and have a compound set up.

Re: 38R or H2E?

The H2E sounds pretty sweet also. Only downside to the 38R, is you are maxed out when you buy it. The H2E can be modded a hundred different ways. The install kit makes it higher initially, but upgrades are cheaper. If you have an early 99, the H2E is about the same.

Anyone know if the QSSB has as many mod options as the H2E?

Re: 38R or H2E?

sometimes I love a lot of turbo noise. then on long trips it can get a little annoying too. but i love it more than hate it.

Sounds like the smarter option would be to go with the H2E. the cheaper way would be the 38R, but may look back and wanna kick myself in the junk for not shelling out the extra dollars for the H2E...

Re: 38R or H2E?

I have ran both and they are both good turbos and a huge improvement over stock for sure. If I had to buy one of them today I would choose the H2E because it pulled so much better on the upper end. It stayed strong all the way through. I ran a std H2E for a while and then got a modified H2E from Bean and I was very happy with it. In all fairness I am comparing the modified H2E to the 38r and there was no comparison to me. The std H2E was not even close to the turbo the modded H2E was though.

The QSSB seems to be a very good turbo also from what I hear but I have not had personal experience with it. I am sure you will be happy either way but in my case I had the 38r and then went to the modded H2E whereas I wish I would have just went straight on to the modded H2E.

Again, I dont want to discredit the improvement the 38r will get you. Very good turbo also.

I kinda sound like a politician jumping back and forth
