Im lost here: Need suggestions on turbos...

So my cousin has a 97 with baby swamps and then normal 6pos chip. I think its a TS. ( no custom tunes )...

He wants to go up to a D66 for now, as the baby swamps on the TS chip tuning it pretty smokey. Plus a little more power is a plus too.

I was doing some browsing and I see that there is a DIY66 and the Beans D66. Any other options out there? I dont know where to start looking at for him, so any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks guys.

BTW Im a 6.0 guys, so this is all new to me.

for a stright drop in D66 is about the only option (I've got a E99 and in the same boat). Unless you either 1. update to all SD parts (about 2k) or 2. go all out with a "normal" mount t3/t4 type set-up such as the h2e whitch has its own pedistal (3K+ depending on brand/type).

but more important fact he/you are missing is to get custom tunes and that'll be more HP and less smoke

It seems like you have to drop the trans to install a turbo? Or maybe its easier to drop the trans? lol.... I cna have my 6.0 turbo out in about 15-20 mins no problem.

1995 Babby Swamps and TS 6 pos

I have a 95 with Baby Swamps, TS 6 pos and it does not smoke and runs very well real strong especially when Turbo kicks in. It is very smooth and I believe it has the 150/146 injectors if I am not mistaken. I keep it on 6, the PO said he puts it in #1 when towing and #2 when cold outside to start other than that it stays on #6. The rebuilt motor was 100,000 miles ago. Truck also has a A&B intake. I hope that helps sounds like we have similar set ups.

Okay maybe he just needs better tunes first. I know how critical tunes are for the 6.0s... I wouldnt think TS would ship their switch with terrible tunes. Anyway thanks all.

Chech the contacts where chip is wired to computer very easy if there is a connection that is not perfect and needs to be cleaned this possibly could cause what is happening. I wish I knew more buy brand new to the 7.3 diesel community. Best of luck!! I have one question how is the 6 pos switch mounted on his truck could you send me pics? Thank you!

So I'm running a 66mm turbo thats made by PDR Diesel, It came with a 1.0 housing for a quicker spool. It cleaned up my Baby swamps, even with good tuning (swamps and live tuned customs) It was smokey and hot with the stock TP38, the 66mm charger cured this big time. Simple bolt in, 360 thrust bearing, 1.0 exhaust housing, Billet Compressor Wheel. 66/88 Comp wheel.
All for $100 less than a Bean D66. for a better turbo.

Baby swamps aren't enough to spin a 66 properly. Rebuild his stock turbo with a WWE and new gearhead tunes...... just my opinion

I dont have any issues lighting my 66mm with my Babies, 1.0 Housing helps with that though I'm sure.

Also the blade pattern on the compressor wheel will also dictate the results. If you have a 11+0 style billet wheel then you will be taking a step backwards when compared with a 6+6 syle billet wheel or cast wheel.
