fitting vgt on 7.3

was wondering how to fit a 6.0 vgt turbo onto a 7.3. Ive seen it done in diesel power mag on an obs and on a sd with a "custom controller" What exactly is this? I got the impression that vgt turbos ran off of the computer as well as the air flowing through them. Would like to do this b/c it would sound awesome and would flow just as much air as an aftermarket 7.3 turbo.

Too much trouble to be worth it.

Get an upgraded turbo like the D66 or even the full H2E kit

The controller is for the variable vanes and is WAY more trouble then it's worth. Additionally the turbo setup is completely different... the 7.3 turbo intake side is at the top, and the 6.0 is at the bottom. You'd have to have a custom spider, uppipes, collector, intake system, pedistal, I/C tubes and boots etc...

It's a TON cheaper to just upgrade to a drop in.

This my friend is no where near correct. My TN BB will outflow ANY year factory 6.0 turbo

Additionally it'll live long at 40 psi, unlike the 6.0 turbo

just get a recording of a 6.0 driving by and play that on a loud speaker outside your truck and you can have the same sound then.

Screw it, do it. But take a lot of pics and a good ledger on what you spent.
