I have one on my 88 . It helps a little but it still hardly matches a stock Powerstroke.

IDI's are mechanical diesels so there are no chips or tuners.

On the left side of the injection pump is a small oval cover plate and under that is an adjustment screw. If I remember correctly you may need to bar over the engine until it comes into view. I don't recall how much you need to turn it in, my old memory bank is thinking 1/2 to 1 turn clockwise. I installed a turbo from Hypermax on my '89 I use to have. They also had a four inch exhaust kit that had a beautiful rumble. Getting on and off the "gas" was heavenly because of the pronounced turbo whistle. It REALLY woke up the truck. I found it fairly easy to install for the very limited knowledge of vehicles I had back then. Everything came off easy because my truck was barely a year old when I installed the turbo. I may still have the adaptor to move the air intake to the high pressure area in front of the windshield if anyone wants it, don't have the connection hose for it I don't think.

the turbo kits are relatively simple to install. as far as more power turn up the pump. the metering screw is located on the passenger side of the pump under a 5 sided cover held in place by 2 hexheaded screws.under the cover is a rubber gasket so you will know you are there. you will need a small mirror and a light to see the metering screw. the motor will have to be turned till the screw is visible. you will also need an alan wrench. if i remember right 3/16. 3 flats or 1/2 turn will paint the sky black but also caused me some overheating problems. 1 flat is about right. good luck
