Turbos toast!!! Hybrid?

A few weeks ago my turbo started squeeling a bit and seemed to have lost all shaft play, it is now bad enough I have stopped driving it. It gets very hot and creates less than average amounts of boost.

I have been looking into hybrids and was wondering what and who everyone was having success with. I would like to keep this as cheap but effecient for continuing to make power down the road. I have loooked into a complete turbo but Im in the middle of buying a new home so money is a large factor.

Truck is a 98.5, 5spd, w/ edge juice att w/ stg 6, stg 2 AFE, 4" into 6" MBRB stacks, running 2 lift pumps one in tank and one on the frame with half inch fuel line and ats relay kit to both.

I would eventually like to be well over 500 hp if not way more but oney allows. I would like a turbo to get me as far along as possible as well as throwing some sticks at it as well in the near future(after new turbo and house lol).

Whatcha think???

1998.5 Dodge 3500 Ext Cab dually
Super B Special
200hp sticks
Edge Juice Attitude *HOT*/Stealth cover
in tank LP/Vucan big line kit w/ lp on frame/ATS relay
MBRP 6" Mitres/ AFE stage 2
Valair 13" 650hp clutch THANX DAN!!!

I make 488 with my setup s300 62/71/14 110hp ddps, edge juice with attitude and a fass. If your tight on money buy a used hx35 to get you by and then get a good turbo as the hybrid will not support what you want. Also recommend you get rid of the in-tank pump and get a fass or airdog 150. They work and will save you from killing a injection pump as the in tank pumps are garbage.

01 quad cab 4x4, edge drag comp, 4" exhaust, fass 150, 250 ddps, Jefferson State compounds 683hp so vp 11.91. AMSOIL front to rear. now back to stock 95 fummins in the works
