Are you looking for performance or just a replacement?

Do you have anything else done to the truck? Many other mods would be more beneficial before a turbo swap. Exhaust first,your year down pipe was designed to fit not flow. Need to upgrade exhaust first. Inter cooler would be another good upgrade. Not sure what all your looking to get out of your truck but I'd look at other areas before a turbo.

Than I would definitely start with other mods. Especially the exhaust. Anything with a replacement down pipe will help sound and flow. Remember with a turbo diesel you want good flow to keep EGTs down.

I'm sure any that maintains pipe size is fine. They are all free flowing.
