Need Help!!! Turbo Question?

Well guys recently toasted the turbo on my 02 7.3 with a 180k. So my question is do I rebuild the a stock turbo with upgraded ww2. Or is there a better bang for my buck to upgrade the turbo with out changing injectors? I am running a dp tuner f5 switch. Also I mostly tow a 24 enclosed trailer. Thanks for the help in advance!

Well, it depends on your term "toasted".

When I read that, I think the wheels have hit the housing and there is carnage inside. If that is the case, I would consider a 38r or d66.

If toasted means far less like leaking a little oil, and you wasnt having egt problems before, I would think a wwII would be an ok upgrade. Are you gonna rebuild the turbo? After paying labor charges and buying a rebuild kit, you are about half way to a better turbo arent ya?

I do believe that the egts got way to high to cause the turbo to fail. That's kinda the boat I am in. Do I rebuild or do I upgrade? Just don't want the same problem again and if it means spending a little bit more to get a upgrade then I am all up for it! So the 38r would be a good turbo to replace?

The towing sounds like it is the problem if you are trying to do it on the hot setting. I would like to tell you that the stock turbo with the ww2 wheel would work excellent (it would definitely help) but I cant be sure. Guys have reported that wheel on a stock charger, cleaning up stage 1 injectors so I would think it would be fine for stock sticks. That said, the 38r or d66 would definitely work amd are the only 2 "bolt on" turbos for a 7.3 that I remember.

If you are curious, call dieselsite and talk to them about the ww2. They have done extensive dyno time with it on multiple combination trucks so they could help better than I can. If I had a scrap stock turbo that needed completely rebuilt and money wasnt much of a problem, I would just buy a better turbo. They have much more efficient exhaust wheels as well that really make differences.

Don't just rely on my opinion man! I would make a few calls and talk to others. I would have thought someone else here would have chimed in.

I honestly dont know on who has the best price. Call dieselsite first. I thought they had a good price.
