95 turbo upgrade

Hey guys,

I need your help on this one...
I've got 1995 7.3L powerstroke with the stock turbo on it. The old girl turned over 200K miles on me this past weekend. I need to know what turbo upgrade I need to go with to get as much power, pickup, and turbo noise as possible without sacrificing motor longevity. Also, how many miles can we normally get out of these 7.3 PS? The big old girl needs to last me quite a bit longer!

Thanks guys

I use my truck for just about everything... The occassional road trip... The occasional trailer haul averaging 7,000 pounds and up, to the occasional race with a stock 240sx or other little cuties that think they're fast.... When it comes to money, that can be a bit of a problem but I've got about 1k to play around with... You got any brand names you like? I'm new to the whole turbo upgrading thing... I've always wanted to be able to pull up next to a subaru sti or a lancer evo mr and be able to smoke em for 0 to the speed limit and beyond.

It all depends on what you do with your truck, your hp goals and how much money you have to play with, cause these trucks arent cheap to upgrade

Just a turbo upgrade isn't going to do ya much until you get bigger injectors, a better oil pump, possibly electric fuel pump, intake and exhaust. You'll probably see some power but your injectors are limiting you as well...

agreed, you have to have supporting mods in order to build more power, youll than need a better transmission to hold that power

and mileage i wouldnt worry to much about, Mine just hit 340,xxx on it and it still runs great. And Ive seen them with over 500,000

My 96 has 220k on the stock turbo....and it takes a regular beating.
If your not planning on any major mods, such as injectors, I/C..... .84 Hot Side housing, spool up quicker.

FIY If you want more power on a diesel you add more fuel.
If you want more power on a gas engine you add more air. Both to a extent.

id look into a set of injectors. But if you want to go turbo first.... then

Probaly a D66 Turbo would be your best bet for bolt on performance Just a bit over $1k. Or H2E if you have a bit more money to spend .

But id get a set of larger injectors. They will be like driving a new faster truck.

1994.5, 2.5 lift, 35s on 17x10 MHTs, Intercooled, Stage 3 injectors, Nitrous, 6637, Water/Meth, 3" DP, 4" Magnaflow, IDM, TS Chip, 4.10s, 33s, 4 Pod pillar. 6000k HIDs.

Converted From ZF5 To E4OD w/ PCS TCM-2000 Tuneable Trans Computer, 6.0L Trans cooler and Triple Disc TC.

Up next Install electric fuel, ladder bars
