Re: 38r question

no need to upgrade anything. A 38r is a very nice turbo all the way up to 500 hp i belive and is still just as driveable if not more driveable than a stock turbo at stock power levels

Re: 38r question

You won't notice the full benefits of it without the upgrades, but you'll be fine with stock stuff.

Re: 38r question

There will be a little more lag with the 38r than the stock turbo, on stock sticks at least.

Go ahead and go with the 1.15 non wastegated housing

Re: 38r question

I say go for it, I got one running stock sticks for now and its just a great upgrade for towing and everyday cruising. Very nice pronounced whistle too.

I dont think there would be much more lag then the stock turbo... Remember it is a BB turbo not a JB like the stock turbo is.

And way put on a 1.15 housing if not needed.

Same here... Unless you plan on going with bigger injectors soon then you don't need the 1.15 housing. If you do go with it the turbo will just take longer to light with stock injectors and you may end up not liking how laggy it is.

Re: 38r question

When I first put the 38r on my orange truck with stock injectors, I didn't notice any more lag.

Me neither, and I live at high altitude. Lag is the same as a bone stock turbo.

I still currently run the 38r with stock injectors.
