97 turbo help

I have a 97 with a turbo vane that is bent. My filter housing broke some how and the turbo sucked a piece of plastic in it. Lucky for me I just started it and was able to shut it down before it did serious damage.

My question is can I take a turbo off of a 99 7.3 and install it on my 97. The only reason I'm considering doing this is because I can get one for free, (my buddy rolled his 99.... that was a sad day). I just need to know if this is possible. I think it would work since both trucks have 7.3's. But we all know how Murphy's Law works. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

You can do it, but you will need to superduty pedistal as well, and the super duty up pipes off the manifolds.

If the turbo shaft is still good just replace the compressor wheel with a wicked wheel from dieselsite.com

He has a wicked wheel in a obs. All the things tyler said is what you need to swap. and if you can do all that for free i'd do it.

i would stick to a 97 turbo, you can either get a wicked wheel and put it in or get a reman turbo for the 97 for like 500-600 bucks. with the 99 turbo the exhaust housing is way to small to have on a truck without an intercooler, the egts will be too high. you will need a new pedistal and a way to control the waste gate since the 97 doesnt have one.

No you are right. OBS wheels are Wicked wheels.
