Turbo Question ?

Does anyone know if the E-SERIES turbo pedastal mounts different than the F-SERIES?

IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE IF IT DOES THE MOTORS NOT GONNA FIT IN MY BRONCO and my mechanic is moving in 3 weeks and I can't afford to lose more time looking for parts.

I'm about 95% sure that the pedestal is the same on the F-series and E-series. I will do some digging just to be sure, but I think you should be ok.

Everything I've found indicates that there is no difference in the pedestals. Maybe someone else will back me up on this, but I think you should be fine.

Well, you guys are kinda right.... Its the same as the superduties, just different turbo. The van turbo is a common upgrade for superduty guys, its a non wastegated turbo with a 1.15 exh housing which helps lower egt's plus it wont surge like the stock superduty turbo will. An OBS turbo will not fit on a van turbo pedistal. They (superduty/ E series) use a v band clamp to mount the turbo onto the up pipe collector where as the obs uses a 4 bolt flange. Also the OBS turbos bolt to the pedistal from the bottom and the superduties bolt from the top, that is why they are so much easier to remove from the engine...

I assume he is using the turbo that came with the engine, so he should be fine. You will deffiinetly have problems if you are trying to mix and match parts from obs and superduty's.

the OP is having a problem of the manifold hitting the firewall. That is why he's seeking out old body style turbo parts.

No I'm not trying to mix OBS parts with the superduty ones like lukecline said I am having problems with the E-Series manifolds & pipes hitting the firewall which is why I am looking for F-Series manifolds, up pipes, and a y pipe. The E-Series manifold setup is completely different than the F-Series, of course I am just learning this now!!

The reason I asked about the turbo is because I know the turbo is real close to fitting in there and I don't have much time to waste since my intall guy is moving his shop in 3 weeks and he told me my truck needs to be done before then. There is a picture of a Powerstroke in a Bronco (scroll down a bit) but I am almost certain in is an F-Series motor. Maybe you guys can make out the year but I certainly can't. I am the only AZZ that would buy an E-Series motor for a project like this!! I just couldn't pass up the deal it was $1200 for the motor complete minus the ECU.

Looking for Help / Advice with my 96 Motor

That looks like an F-series engine to me. I think if you buy the F-series manifolds and up pipes they will bolt up alright. The bronco engine bay is the same as an F-250 or 350 roughly, so you shouldn't have problems after that.
