Staying old school in NC

Hello,
Coming to the forum to increase overall usefulness of my truck. Had it a long time and trying to make it a better heavy towing rig. It is a 1998 mostly stock 2500 4x4 5sp Quad recently converted to a 3500 with 1997 donor 3.54 axle. Truck has 137k miles. 4 inch MBRP, stock turbo, 90HP DAP VOC injectors, towing clutch Southbend, 10 plate and fuel dialed back to keep my temps down. BHAF. Love the newer trucks but mine gets it done and it has been paid off for 12 years now.
Thanks
Quinn

If you use the truck to tow and still have the stock charger with those fueling modification you are going to want to upgrade the charger for sure. Lots of good options out there, I would start on the second gen 12 valve section of the site.

Thanks for the welcome guys. My intention is to find the right turbo to keep my EGT's more manageable. I do ok watching everything on hills and my power is great. More than enough that is seems the engine will pull the trans out from under with 15k pounds pulling in the mountains, BUT it could use a better cooling turbo, but I really don't know what will work best with minimal to no mods.
