Clutch and turbo help

So I just bought a 94.5 7.3 powerstroke as a parts truck to put into my 91 f350, I have everything apart and it looks like I will be needing a new turbo and clutch soon, I found a good deal on some 160cc 100% injectors and I wanted to know what turbo would be good with them and what clutch would hold up to them with normal daily driving and maybe 1 or 2 truck pulls a year. Also where do these engines normally leak oil from?

oil leaks are common from the disptick where it meets the pan. the turbo pedistal, any number of o rings on the top side of the motor, and on the early PSDs like your 94 the inspection cover on the trans can rub through the back of the oil pan.

you can run a rebuilt stocker, a D66, and H2E, or get a T4 mount and run any number of turbos, i have 160/100s and a D66, w/ a 1.1 housing and a WW2. i find it laggy i am going to switch to a smaller 1.0 housing and see if that helps

for a clutch go bigger than you think you need. I have a Con O from southbend thinking that was all i would need. so far it is holding fine, however if i went with a Con OFE the first time around i could have saved some money. i will upgrade that when it needs it

I was gonna go with the con O rated for 350 horse 750 torque because that's all I can afford and I was going to wait on a turbo for a while, what kind of boost numbers are you getting and do u have a custom chip or anything ?
