03 Turbo

Hello,

I have a late model 04 and am replacing my hg's and studding it. I'm doing the normal upgrades while its apart and have the ability to get an 03 turbo in great shape. I have a 5" straight exhaust and from everything I've seen and heard here will love the sound of the 03.

My question is there any downside to this. There is nothing wrong with my stock turbo. I guess the only reason for the change is:
1) Mine is already out
2) I like the sound

Before I do anything I thought I'd ask.

As of now the truck is stock. The 5"exhaust is in the box and my plan is to worry about getting it running right before I tune it or anything like that. Upgrades on hand now:
1)EGR delete
2)New oil cooler
3)Banjo's
4)BlueSpring
5)gauges
6)AirDogII
7)Coolant filter
8)5" straight exhaust
9) zoodad mod
* if I keep my turbo will upgrade to the 07 turbo drain tube (not sure if that can be done with an 03)

At this point I'm more or less BROKE!!! Between machine work,gaskets and the above I'm tapped. Then there is this turbo. Its not free and doesn't come with the stand so I gotta add that in. I'm single so a couple weekends without going out and I can swing the turbo.

Thanks for any an all info

I want an 03 turbo on mine... It just depends if you can handle a louder exhuast.
Some people can't handle it, personally for me, THE LOUDER THE BETTER!!!

The 03 Turbo sounds amazing, and you really don't need to buy a different pedestal for it. The 03 can be installed on a 04-07 pedestal if you leave out the back mounting bolt (its a PITA to get at anyway lol). By the time you bolt up the up-pipes, down pipe, and other two bolts, it isn't going to move. And, the 07 drain tube will work on an 03 turbo.

The question is just how bad do you want the whistle?

I'm home at lunch, you guys were so fast on the reply.

I'm down with the sound and I was just checking on any downside.

What should I be paying for it? We kinda just talked about it and haven't named a price.

Thanks

eh i'd pay 450 for a good lower mileage/rebuild/recently cleaned one... sell yours afterwards and you will only be paying 150 for the turbo

I gave $850 for mine Brand New / Totally rebuilt ...however you want to call it..... with a 1yr - unlimited mileage warranty .....rule of thumb for something used , is never go over 1/2 of what new will cost you , unless it is Cherry or gets you out of a bind ..if that makes sense ?
