turbo?

is it possable to put a 7.3 turbo on the 6.9? and not run the ATS or banks? im gettin a 6.9 with in a week or so but i would like it to have a little more power. or else is it possable to take the stock7.3 turbo and weld the flange on the exhaust and add in all the tube and all that, i dont think that they have a inercooler do they if so how big is it? or is there more to the 7.3 turbo that i would need to worry about? I dont plan on keeping the truck very long, it is going to just be used to haul some steel and then im going to sell it and buy a Fummins swap i think... the truck is the normal WI truck so its rusty. well the cab is, the fenders and doors are clean. thanks

I dont know too much about this,i've been in and out of diesels. i want to get this thing turboed if i could..

thanks guys! and gals

you'd have to fabricate alot of parts. manifolds, etc.

The vally doesnt have all the mounting holes. I would just buy a turbo kit for 2k it would end up being cheaper.

this is what i figure. i buy a used turbo from a 7.3 PSD 150 ish
make my own exhaust pipe to the turbo- say 6 dollars for the metal and the time it takes for me to cut a flange and weld it all up, it would take me half a day and i would have that done. then i would have to do the pipe for the intercooler and install the cooler, the cooler would run about 150 ish from what i've seen and then i just have to make a bracket for the turbo to sit on, make the oil lines and all the fitings and then mod the exhaust from turbo. so that would be about 400 to be on the safe side. the turbo, cooler and the cost for me to buy the metal,

im going to school for welding and im good friends with a guy that runs a welding shop and he gives me crazy good deals. so i think i could do this for under 500. or am i missing things?

heres the parts that i think i need,

turbo OBS PSD, from my understanding its all mechanical. nothing electric plugging in on it,
cooler
and exhaust and cooler pipe.

If you look at Banks set up heres the PDF file http://assets.bankspower.com/manuals...310-v3-web.pdf

they run a pipe (page 4 numbers 24, 60 and 68) it is a pipe that runs under the engine that takes the left side exhaust come under the engine to the right side and then go up, if you ask me, that would retain exhaust and make things run hotter, i was going to make it so there would be a Y pipe on the back side that would come straight up and meet in the middle and then the turbo would side on that. it would be a type of a mounting bracket i think that could hold the turbo still. does this sound right? or am i missing something? i know that i think its really easy and its gonna end up being harder then it is but still how much harded would it be?
