I have a 6 point intake and exhaust and I'm getting bored.. Any and all suggestions for a dramatic increase for under 2k will be considered

More so than a 38r swap with new tune and up pipes?

You will have more increase in putting larger injectors, does that mean that is your next step, maybe, maybe not. Do you have a HP goal?

No goals really I like the idea of the turbo and up pipes because I can install it myself. The injectors are pricey and I'd have to pay someone to install them.

well you dont have enough money to do a 38R and injectors....

also is your truck auto or manual?

the problem you have is that at the point you are any more power is going to come at a high cost... plus you also need to figure that your going to have to do supporting mods like a built transmission.... adding more power to a stock trans is only going to weaken it even more...

I guess the real question I should be asking is what kind of power gains and maybe fuel economy would I see with a 38r/bigger up pipes and a new tune on stock injectors and hpop? My local Powerstroke shop is telling me close to 75 and is assuring me my tranny will be fine for moderate driving.

And are you guys sure it won't work? My shop never said anything about it not working.. They actually suggested it numerous times

It's a strictly Powerstroke shop, they do good work.. Guess they weren't thinking. So can your left nut suggest an equivalent 38r turbo?

you can run a 38r on a 99...you just have to change the spyder and plenums...it isnt impossible.

2'' to 3'' sounds like an upgrade that needs to be done anyways..
