A stock 7.3L factory N/A can hadle a turbo as long as you don't over boost. if you get a turbo that is wastegated then meake sure the boost doesn't go past "x" psi. sorry i don't know what psi the n/a engine is rated at. It does depend on the condition of the engine as well. if the engine is near the end of its life then no point in puting a turbo on it.

it can definately be done you just have to compensate for how powerful your turbo is by modifying your engine to handle the abuse. im researching the same thing as i just got an amazing deal on this huge turbo for my f350. im not getting a kit though the whole setup is going to be custom. also studding the head is one way to compensate.
