Is there a way to install the OTA update to the Sprint S4 without losing root? Rooted using TWRP.

you can just update the firmware and leave the boot loader alone. the link is in my signature for unknownforce's firmwares

other then that im not sure if there is a method to have the OTA and not loose root.... voodoo OTA rootkeeper still does not support 4.3

Mine kept root through the 4.3 ota using SuperSu survival mode. I don't think it's guaranteed though some were not so lucky.
