I know the KC would be the better overall set up, but at more than 1000 more, it hurts my budget AND its a few weeks out at best (ive already been told 2 weeks like 4 weeks ago).

Need to do up pipes, and rebuild my badly leaking fuel bowl ASAP. Figured while I was in there to do boots, glow plugs, gaskets, etc. Im at 185K on the odo. I mostly daily drive on the freeway, and tow 10K fairly often.

Was looking at either going to the KC38r turbo OR rebuilding mine with a riffraff wheel, EBV delete pedestal, high flow outlet and 360 bearing kit and a turbo master wastgate. This will be about 1K less than a new turbo.

I dont need to be the fastest out there, but would like to lower my EGT's while towing, and having more power for climbing the sierras would be nice. Would I be happy with the rebuild or do I really need to just pony up for charlies turbo?

stock injectors and hpop, 4" exhaust and DP tuner.

Rebuild it. You’ll be fine. BTW I have the Kc38r stg2. It’s a kick ass turbo but it will also kick your bank account as you’ve mentioned.

WW2 from diesel site is what I would use. Even their turbo is tops - everything they sell it tops. They too are local to me.

Here are some upgrades and links and or contacts

I highly recommend these as a MUST from a reliability standpoint.

I would get all your orings from dieselorings.com
For the up pipes use Amazon and they are under $100.
Use ford uvch and glow plugs. Skip the waste gate actuator. Was of money. Then just get a billet wheel and a 360* thrust washer rebuild kit.
