Holset HX50 in 97 powerstroke

Would a 22cm exhaust housing be to big for a 7.3l powerstroke??????(bad spoolup)?? Would it work for a twin set up???

Why would you need a charger that big? What's all done to the truck in the first place?

Yeah that is a really big turbo, a single it would not be good for anything I would think. For a twin setup, but even then you are going to need some serious fuel to light it I would think.

Way to big for your application IMHO. Looked it up and its designed for a 10-15liter engine, and is good for 470hp. The turbo alone weighs 35 pounds!

19cm is still way to huge. I'm thinking more in the 12-14cm range would be more appropriate. Unless you're going with rather large injectors at the same time spool up is going to suffer A LOT. It takes a lot of exhausted air to get the turbine spinning in a housing that big...

maybe you shouldnt post about things you have no clue about.

an hx50 will flow as much or a little more air than a h2e iirc. a 22cm housing from my experience will not spool well, however a 19cm should. I have tried both of those housings but on a modded h2e. without a set of injectors you probably wont gain anything by going with this turbo. it will work in a twin setup but will have to be used as the high pressure or secondary turbo bc its too small to be the atmosphere turbo.
