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