Aftermarket turbo help MPG?

Anyhow since i have to buy a new turbo for my '04 i was trying to decide between just getting a factory type replacement or getting something aftermarket. I am not looking to build big power or want to change injectors but i will be adding a tune, full exhaust, egr delete, studs, and a new oil cooler while i am at it. Anyhow just looking for a little input. Thanks

Check out the Powermax turbo upgrade. Have heard lots of good things about it and is comparable to the factory turbo in price.

A non vgt turbo will be less restrictive. Even if you get a similar size. Elite diesel and river city diesel have some. Elite diesel is still working on their site so you can also call them about their turbos.

Yeah, internal vanes not the compressor wheel blades. Not sure if that was what you were thinking.

Yes the internals, So that thing should sound like an F-16.

It's not the vanes that make the difference in sound. It's the number of blades on the exhaust wheel.

I have an '04 stocker for sale. Truck had less than 57K when it was removed. Never blew head gaskets, or had an oil cooler/egr failure. Never towed more than 3 or 4K. Only mods were intake, exhaust, and tunes from Innovative. Was making around 29psi with extreme street when it was removed.

2015 F-350 6.7L, CCSB, SRW, FX-4

2004 F-350 6.0L SRW XLT Sport, Ex cab, SB, FX4-Gone after 10 years as original owner


There are very few personal problems that can't be solved by the proper application of high explosives!



Initial Success or Total Failure-EOMFD!

Single non VGT on a 6.0 = crappy daily driver/towing machine 90% of the time unless you have a lot of tuning work done. Ask me how I know...
