i'm overhauling the 7.3 stroke in my newly acquired 97 f350 cclb. this will be my primary tow rig. it will have stock injectors and hpop but i;m going to get a 100hp chip after intial breakin of engine. so i'm wondering what turbos you guys are running like dislikes. would it be better to go complete aftermarket turbo or stock turbo with say a banks hot housing.

keep the stock turbo and go with stage 1 injectors from rosewood.

the injectors in a OBS are the limiting factor they only flow 90 - 98 cc(have heard conflicting numbers) . you will never use 100 hp tune on stock injectors.

i stay on the 75 hp tune cuz on the 100 it is a dog. could also be my junk causing it. that is why i ordered a t500 and rosewood stage 2's.
