I believe that banks has a kit for this. It comes with everything you need to install the turbo on your truck. Price wise if Banks does carry the kit for this it would be the way to go. Because you would get everything you need. You would not be tracking down parts,, and trying to piece this together.

I have installed a couple of the banks kits in the past on a '89 and a '92 idi 7.3. They are not that difficult, except for having to bash in the fire wall to clearance for the down pipe. If I remember it takes about 4 to 6 hours in the driveway to get one done. It really makes those old 7.3's wake up

I put the Banks Sidewinder on my '94.....I'm very happy with it. The tech @ Banks told me they will be dicontinuing this application around the end of the year. I did get a notice in the mail a few weeks ago that they were having a sale on overstock and discontinued items. Might want to contact them asap. I took my time and was done in a weekend. They include very detailed instructions and the kit had everything in it. Hope this helps.

I also got the complete exhaust from Banks and put it on at the same time. It was a bolt on deal although i welded the connections myself. They slip fit together and clamps are provided in the kit. If you are using your stock exhaust, you can get adapters and clamps at your local parts store to mate it together and then have an exhaust shop do the final work/welding.
