Wtb turbo

It's time......apparently the waste gate is stuck on my stock turbo, and if I am going to spend money it is going to be on a different (larger) turbo. I'm a little strapped for cash but I have around $1,000 to spend. Aside from that I'm not sure which turbo to go with. I study this forum and get more and more confused.

So what I guess I'm asking is: Which turbo should I go with on my set-up for good streetability and also for towing. Something good to around 550 HP for starters. And also in my price range. I can save up more for the right part, but I am nearing the end of my girlfriends patience with this truck.

I think there are other people out there who would like to know what you all have to say.

You guys are always a lot of help, and I look forward to reading your responses.

Thanks for the link. The turbo on that page is for a 12 valve. Will that work on a 24 V?

Honestly, I don't know the dimensions. Did you have trouble lining up your Intercooler line? I keep blowing my boot off, it won't hold together long enough to build over 7 psi, is there a longer boot available or is there a rig I can do?

spray some hair spray around the boot and then clamp it down tight...be a man and use some muscle
