6.0 turbo

I have an 05 f250 with the 6.0...Getting head studs redone this spring and also have a bad turbo..im looking to upgrade it also but my question is..do I have to stick with a vgt turbo or can I do a non vgt..looking for better performance. .I do a lot of towing with it too

Yes you can run a non-VGT, but it's gonna require SCT custom tuning.

You can switch to non vgt, but you have to also buy the set up as well. I think a s362 would probably do well with towing and make good power.

Whats wrong with your turbo? I had a bad oil ring in mine and tore it down and rebuilt it for $55 with a parts kit from Garrett.

sounds like your turbo is probably done. If is is screaching at idle it could be wheel to compressor cover contact.

Are you doing anything else to the truck. It could be a good time to upgrade to a bigger turbo. Maybe a stage 1 vgt... or I hear cutting edge makes great kits to swap over to non vgt.


Did you say you are redoing your headgaskets again??? whey did they fail???

my vains were stuck too. cleaned them up good with an angle grinder and a brass wire wheel and applied anti sieze to the unison ring. screetching could be bad bushings which comes in the rebuild kit I mentioned. Its worth a look inside to see if you can rebuild it unless you just want to spend a lot of cash on an upgrade.
