Banks or not, can't tell

Ok, i know little about diesels but i finally got one and i am learning. I bought this rig, 1997 F-350 cc lb xlt lariat 4x4 with a 7.3 psd. Owner tells me it has banks turbo, exhaust and inner cooler. I look at the turbo and it does not say banks. I do have gauges for Boost and Pyro and a receipt that shows stinger package.
Since i have no idea how to download pictures, can some one post some pictures of stock OBS engine and turbo form a 97 along with Banks turbo from the same. It has turbo lag, which may be normal. I took it to a mechanic but he could not say 100% it was banks. It does have a large downpipe and he told me the cat is still there and if it came out, i could see lower pyro and less lag. What say all of you.

Banks wouldn't be the entire turbo it would just be a smaller exhaust side housing for it.

Ditch the cat. Unless you California boys have to have them.

And??? the simple mode would be? please remember, you are delaing with a diesel dummy so speak simple. LOL

Us Cali boys do need them if a smog tech stuck his head under the truck but, since 97 does not yet need smog, it is on the chopping block. I am not sure if i want to remove and rod it out or try to find a filler pipe same length, what says you?

The entire shiny and rusty part is your turbo. There are 2 sides to it the shiny side is your air intake and the rusty side is your exhaust housing. The exhaust goes through the exhaust side spinning a compressor wheel that's connected to one on the intake side which sucks in air compresses it and forces it into the engine giving you boost

Thank you so much for the education. Looks like I am going be buying a 1.0 housing and ww2 wheel. Another post recommended these as I have the inner cooler and serious lag.

Hang on a second before you do the 1.0 housing. Is there any tuning done to the truck, chip or programmer? If not that is where you $$ should be spent 1st before an expensive 1.0 housing.

Let me expain the map line mod.
The map line is a black line that runs from the valley intake on the passenger side to a sensor on the pass side firewall. If you reroute this line to the driver side intercooler tube (looks like your boost line is already in there) it will greatly improve the lag you are seeing. Requires a hole drilled and tapped for the line unless you can get it to work where the boost line is located.

This mod paired with a programmer and chip will be far less expensive than a 1.0 housing. Plus with the chip or programmer you will also see improved fuel economy
