stage 2's supporting mods

thanks for taking the time to view...

i had a few questions i hope you guys could answer for me, first off i have a early 99 sd with the 6spd, i recently just got a motor out of a 95 van that is a ford reman motor with 200 miles on it that i am looking to build and swap in. i want to build it with stage 2's,

my question mostly involves the necessary mods to support stage 2's from rosewood.
-turbo-will the one from the van i got work, i cant find a FAQ page for turbo info. so as of now i have the stock turbo off the 95 van and the stock early 99 turbo.

other things i will need?
-17*hpop
-tymar intake
-newer PCM PMT1 or PMT2
-gauges
-exhaust

would head studs be necessary?

thanks in advance!

Well with the stage II's I just got, my mods are: industrial stage II's, adrenaline, electric fuel, tunes from matt @Gearhead, exhaust, 6637 intake, gauges. Stock turbo for now till i can afford something else. Head studs arent necessary with good tuning, but it never hurts to have it.

Im not to sure about the van turbos. I would get a d66 if all the bigger your gonna go is stage II's. I plan on going to 250 hybrids when i get sick of the twos so I'm hoping when the time comes, I can afford a turbo thats up to the task the hybrids

Not to derail the thread but how bad does your truck smoke red stroker? I am buying a 97 obs with a 5 speed and am wanting to do stage 2s with a D66 but do not want to much smoke while towing and daily driving.

Everyone says its fun and sometimes it is but when your towing heavy stuff it kinda sucks cause It gets all over the stuff your towing and I dont want to have to always be looking out for a cop

i have the intercooler already, since my rig is a early 99. the van turbo has a 1.10 ar on the comp housing and from what all i have read thus far it seems that the exhaust side is a 1.15 ar. it does have the ebpv in it but i would have no problem gutting it if this will satisfy the stage 2's for necessary air flow. so in all that rambling i guess my question is will this van turbo work? what would i need to make it work? an ats housing? gutting the ebpv?

well the truck is completely stock extended cab long box 5 speed 110K miles Im buying it from the original owner of it. But I have some money saved up for mods and from tax returns.

But the plan is I wanna do stage 2s a D66 an adrenaline HPOP 3in down pipe upgrade the clutch with 6 Pos with wildman tunes intercooler and probly do my own fuel system. I want it to be a nice driver with decent power but mostly I want it for towing a lot more than my current truck.
