Turbo housing newer 7.3 to a OBS

have any of you guys put on a turbo houseing from a newer 7.3 on a 1997 or OBS truck, will it fit around the turbo? Im putting a intercooler in my 97 F250 and my diesel guy said he forgets if the newer 7.3 turbo housings can bolt on to the older ones. I want to use the bigger diameter piping for the spyder and intakes thats why we were wondering if the turbo houseing swap can happen.

No the SD compressor housing will not fit your truck.

the super duty housing will not fit the truck but you can make the newer turbo fit the obs alot of people do this so that instead of running the D66 they can do the Gtp38R conversion


check link and here is a list of the parts needed real easy swap getting my manifolds this friday and i will have the complete swap kit
3" plenums (OBS had 2")
SD manifolds
SD up-pipes
SD turbo pedistal
SD intake Y (the start of your IC system)
All the hardware required to install this

Basically it turns your OBS in a SD on the airflow side of things. Lots of guys do it so they can run a 38r instead of the D66.

anybody have those extra SD parts laying around, or know where i can get them cheap? alot of the junkyards around here wont take that stuff off motors, you have to buy the whole motor. so im looking to do this project cheaper than a motor.

Why not just find an E99 intake spyder for $150-200? Or build your own using the stock y-pipe? That will be way cheaper and easier than doing an SD conversion.

if you just swap out the spyder would an E-99 intercooler work?

Any intercooler will work. The E99 intake spyder is the only one that will work with a stock turbo, unless you build one yourself using the stock Y pipe.

how hard would it be to get the compound turbo off a newer model and put that in?
