97 7.3 Turbo time

Its time to order a turbo for my 7.3, stock one didn't last to long with the stage 1's. I have stage ones in it from TW, TW chip, PDR intercooler, Early 99 intake plenum, going with a BDP dominator 66 turbo. Question is them aluminum intake manifold BDP has, They say they wont fit my truck due to turbo placement, I would need to be running the h2e or a newer style turbo. I take it there not lying but does anyone make something like this that will work? Looks like the bigger opening would really make a difference, my intake plenum does have the bigger opening and im just running reducer boots to the stock manifolds. they say my turbo will sit to low and the manifolds are too tall, should i just stick with the stockers? Also is the 17* hpop a direct bolt on as my truck kept throwing the cel every time i put it to the floor. That should cure that problem right?
Thanks

The 17* is a direct bolt in and that should cure your CEL problem, as for the intake manifolds I think youll be ok with the stock ones

Alright, no big gain in opening up to the 3" to match my plenum?

I cant answer that question with 100% certainty but I would say that with just stage 1s and a D66 the 3" plenums wont gain you anything really

About the Intakes, I had a talk with Dale at Tymar and he told me the intake plenums wouldn't make much of a difference if any, if that helps you out. The D66 is a good turbo, I am very happy with mine.

First off welcome to the org. Second get rid of that edge Ez, stacking doesnt work on a powerstroke so it is doing absolutely nothing. The 17* HPOP is the high pressure oil pump that comes in 99.5-03 7.3s 94-early 99 comes with a 15* and when you start going with bigger injectors you may need to upgrade to a 17 or bigger set up to keep up the oil pressure

Yup, was hitting 30-35lbs and very dangerous egts with the stage 1's, this is also with an intercooler. I see most people dont have this problem, ill be honest, my service body weighs 2000 extra lbs and i drove very hard, drag racing at the track every week, dont know if it was the weight of the service body combined with that but i was seeing very dangerous egts and that boost seems alittle high on a stock turbo, dont it?
