97 Turbo upgrade?

What is everyone's opinion on a 7.3l Turbo upgrade. Only Turbo I van find is the garret OEM rebuilt turbos on eBay. And also out of curiosity, has anyone had any luck twin turboing a 97 7.3? I'm running a stock Turbo. But kinda curious when I go to stage one injectors if I could beef up my Turbo or not.

I'm actually getting my injectors and chip from them. Anything in particular I should look for? I remember reading about a D66 setup? Is that any good? I know I'm limited as the OBS have such little space for anything. But thanks for the response. Ill check em out!

Theres plenty of upgrades... d66 is a good ugprade, h2e is a great upgrade.

People have done twins on the 7.3, but its a LOT of money and self-engineering.

Yeah I looked at there site looks like the d66 is a good one they say stage 2 injectors or smaller and I guess it's a stock replacement so should bolt right up pretty easy. But I would call them and talk to them about ur setup.

on stage 1 injectors, rebuild the stock turbo and run it! stage 2s go with a d66.... bigger i would do a t4 mount with S3/4 series turbos.

So what do you mean rebuild it? Like beef up the wheel? Clean the housing? Or just that rebuild and clean. Keep it OEM? I'm only going to do stage 1 injectors. Don't have the money for stage 2 or 3 for a daily driver.

Cause everyone recommends the wicked wheel wen ur running a stock turbo with upgraded objectors. Id get the 1.0 housing and rebuild the turbo like he said and keep a stock wheel cause it is the wicked wheel they recommend and run it. do u have a new hpop yet? Id invest in one of those before u do injectors.
