Will a Perkins 2674A237 Turbo work on a 96 OBS 7.3 Powerstroke?

Hi guys and gals, I'm a proud new owner of a 96 F350 CCLB 4x4. Right now I have a Garrett Turbo (I was told it was a larger than stock but research seems to show its stock) Its an AlliedSignal 1825818C91. I also have another turbo laying around and I was curious to see if it would work and/or be an improvement over what I have. Its a Perkins P/No. 2674A237. 53271013081(6/7)a are the numbers on the casing. I've tried doing some research but all I have been able to come up with is turbos for sale that seem to be for earth movers or generators or something. It may be a stupid question but just putting it out there to see if anyone can shed some light on the situation. Thanks!

If you want to use it you will need to measure the base of the exhaust housing, find one that will fit or make your own, then up pipes, intake to the plenums, and lets not forget about oil. So my point probably more hassle and money than what is worth

If it is off a perkins diesel, you might be able to find out the displacement, compare it to the 7.3, and go from there.
However, you might also be able to take it to a shop and have them measure it, examine it and give a rough cfm output on it. Bottom line is you still need to figure what mount it uses, route oil lines/ coolant lines, rework your entire intake and spyder,and then if you get all of that figured out ( many hours) you have to wonder if it will live under boost, and then try and find parts for it.

Not trying to rain on your parade, but its just not worth it Unless you can find a good source of info on the turbo. Again, not a stupid question, just imo not worth all of the hours. There are a lot of threads on the subject of mild power adders, the search button is your friend. Oh and
