You can put the 03 in for the 05 without changing the pedastal if you just use 2 of the 3 bolts. I know a few people doing this without any current problems.

The 03 is a non VGT correct? If so, I would assume the 03 would be a more reliable upgrade? Or is it a better flowing/higher boosting unit??

No the 03 is still a vgt but it it has 10 blades instead of 12 like the 04-07 turbos. The only difference you will have is that the 03s have an insane whistle.

The '03 6.0 is a VGT, you could also get a 7.3 in '03 so make sure it's for the 6.0. People are after the '03 because of the loud whistle it makes.

How are the '03 as far as reliability ? did they have ball bearings or bushings ?
My turbo is trashed ( sounds like a beercan rattling around in the exhaust LOL ) and I have a line on a '03 if it will work without any modifications ...I use my truck everyday so I cannot be down trying to "FAB " up stuff to make it fit

( guy says came off his '03 and it was for a 6.0 .. original mounting pedestal included w/turbo )

All 6.0 VGT have bushing style bearings, they rely on a thin layer of oil between the bushing and shaft. You will not need to modify/fab anything as long as you get the pedistal with it.

Thanks Lilpooh !
I want to get the PowerMax Turbo but just can't swing the funds right now... lost my job as a Class 8 Fleet mgr after 18yrs due to company restructures...working again but at nowhere near my old salary !
I know my turbo can't hold up much longer and if I can get this '03 and make it work hopefully it will last till my income situation changes for the better and I can get the new turbo ..
