Exclamation URGENT TURBO PROBLEM!!!!! PLEASE HELP!!

I am in the Navy and I transfer in 2 weeks to Maryland from Oklahoma so I have a HUGE drive a head of me so this is a high priorority issue. My turbo blew on me last thursday and I found a turbo off of a 2003 F250 for $350 on craigslist. I took the turbo and my truck to my friends who has worked on ford diesel trucks for the last 23 years for a big dealership. He noticed that the turbo I bought has a different mounting bolt pattern. Can I just get a new turbo stand from an '03 and use on my 2005 6.0 or what? If i buy a new turbo stand and it will work, will the new turbo fit the Y pipe in the back? I know it can be done, because I have heard of people doing it to get a louder turbo. I dont care for that at this point, I just need my truck fixed before I transfer. Please help this has to be done quickly. I have to haul a trailer with my truck in a couple weeks. Thanks everyone!

I am not an expert on 6.0's so dont put your faith in me but I do believe its just the pedestal that is different.

You need the pedistal, and the drain tube from a 2003. The bolts from the 03 have spacers/are longer as well. Not a big deal. The 03 turbo is actually fairly desirable as it is a LOT louder.

Awesome guys. I like the sounds of that. dazdillenger, do you know what something like that would run me? I will be calling some salvage yards tomorrow to see if theres anything they have in stock. Hell, Im willing to pay the price from a dealer ship if I have too. I only payed $350 for that turbo. As long as I get more people confirming that I only need a new pedistal and drain tube, im going with it.

My truck has a 2003 turbo on it, and it's a 2005. Do a search for 2003 turbo, and you will get more info than you can imagine. IT WILL FIT!!!

Good luck!
