'97 7.3 turbo?

new guy here finally deciding to mod my truck. I have a 97 350 dually cc with 7.3 and 88k. Bone Stock! Ive recently purchased intake, exhaust, tuner, intercooler. I was wondering as far as injectors and turbo. Plan on install of all parts at the same time. Which turbo is the best for me? Injectors too? I want to do this all together. Away on a deployment currently and plan on using my downtime for the install. Any info would be excellent

Really depends on what you plan to use the truck for, I would upgrade the HPOP to an adrenaline, T500, or SRP1 before injectors, bigger oil is always good.

Jealous of the 88K btw

that is on the list, i mainly tow my dump trailer with the truck and plow too. I have weighed in with the truck and trailer at 30k plus several times. Pulls it like a dream just want play around a little. Was thinking about stage 1's but i only plan on doing this once. So stage 2's and a turbo was the idea. mabye an h2e but that might be too much for me. Was thinking about a turbo froms rons with the upgrades and the pedestal.

D66 turbo works perfect with 2's, they also make a stage 1.5 which might work well for you

There are LOTS of excellent injector builders....Rosewood, Full Force, Casserly, Beans....I am sure I am missing some

YES, upgrade the pedestal, it is an oil leak just waiting to ruin your day

looks like stage 2 premiums from rosewood and still not possitive on the turbo. rons looks good but not sure if it works well with stage 2's. if his turbo will work with the stage 2 injectors thats my plan. anyone sure if his turbo with pedestal will be a good combo with rosewood stage 2s

What tunes are u running I hope not an edge but hell I'm jealous too, and with that kind of mileage I hope it looks as good as the mileage reflects. So I hope you find a better beater to plow with.
