93 f-350 idi looking to turbo it, got some ?'s

Hello all, well first off i used to have a 96 f-350 powerstroke but last year in December i ended up having and accident and totaled it. Broke my femur and impacted my tibia, now about 4 months later I'm back on my feet, back to school and walking on my two feet again with a new truck. I ended up finding an 93 f-350 idi that i liked and was tired of waiting to find a nice powerstroke. As far as the truck goes its pretty nice: 89k 7.3L diesel, brand new rebuilt E40D transmission from ford(we had to put this in right after purchase as tranny died on the ride home), xlt package, 3 in. body lift, and its sitting on 35' all-terrains.

So I am hopefully getting a job soon when my leg is a little more healed and I really wanna stack it but I want to do a turbo first. I was curious if the banks sidewinder turbo is the only one that bolts right in on the 93's? If not then what are the other options? Also any other suggestions that work well with the Idi's? I don't know a whole lot about them and I am in no way a veteran as far as trucks go.

Thanks
-Henry

PS. I can throw up some pictures if anyone would like.

ATS, Hypermax, and banks all sell turbo kits. You can buy them new, or used. The new Banks and ATS are wastegated, and the hypermax is non wastegated.

These trucks are mechanical so you can turn up the pump for more power, all at the price of a 5/32" allen wrench. It wont be fast, about as good as a stock PSD, but they last a long time, are reliable, get decent fuel economy, and are cheap to maintain.

Thanks, is there really any huge difference between the three turbo's? Whats the difference between wastegated and non-wastegated?

Thanks!

Justin covered most of it.

Wastegated: More boost on the low end but less top end boost
Non-wastegated: Less boost from a stop but more on the top end

I had an older non-wastegated Banks on my 94 and I liked it alot. Would still have the pickup other than the accident......

From what I have gathered the best turbo is going to be Hypermax. I say that due to the rave reviews of their customer service. All of them are going to put out similiar power numbers.

The thing is that once you turbo it and start messing with the fuel adjustments you NEED/MUST have an EGT guage installed. You can easily burn up an engine without it.
