1995 HX40, need specs!

Ive got a 1995 f250 with the basic mods, DP, BHAF, 10k blah blah

Plan on making some parts so I can mount an HX40 or 50 to it. Im tired of reading into aftermarket modifications and after XXXhp you need X turbo. Well X turbo is going to run you $1000. Yeah right, might as well get a cummins and put $1000 into it and have big sticks and a turbo.



Correct me if Im wrong but the Garret is a T4 flange right? T3?

Im going to make an extension flange to bring the exhaust out of the valley a bit so the Holset will clear everything. I am thinking over the passenger side valve cover to try and keep everything short seeing as there will be no IC. Then just run a hood stack.



What I dont know is...

1. Under the stock turbo I know that the oiler needs to be plugged with a plate. Can anyone give dimensions of the hole sizes etc? Can I tap into the OE oiler and run it to the Holset?

2. Which leads to my next question. If the stock oiler is plugged, can I drill and tap somewhere around my oil filter and mount a feed line, like most cummins motors have.

3. Im sure I am forgetting some things.




Budget is small. Im going to buy the turbo, a DIY stage one kit and steel pieces. I am in machining classes until spring and my fabrication skills are good.

Maybe a detailed schematic or something, I would like some dimensions because I dont want to tear the truck down to measure something. The truck is in good running order right now.


I would like around 340hp.

Off a cummins. Absolutely no difference on the hx35's. The hx40's are a touch bigger, but still not worth the hassle in my opinion.

Ya, pretty much. It's actually rather pointless. The hx35 is very comparable (in wheel sizes and max pressure) to what we have stock. And hx40 is just a touch bigger. Now an hx50 is a good deal bigger, but I'd wager with how much that turbo cost and how much it would cost to make work, it would be easier to find a direct drop-in for his 7.3.

You can find hx50s for around $400.

I can make most of the things I will need. I just need the questions on oiling answered.

hx40 or 50, mounting is pretty close to the same. When I get to that point I will decide.

Take an 1/4" aluminum plate and cut it down to be able to fit over the rear feed/return lines and bolt ontop of them, mark where the oil feed is( the small hole) and tap it for a hose fitting. theres your feed, if you removed the lift pump( E-fuel) you could punch a hole in the 7/8 freeze plug for where the LP used to be and thats your return, i'm unsure of how you want to mount it sooo you could possibly make the return with the old one. Just make sure you use the o rings between the plate and block other wise you'l have a huge mess hope this helps!
