Ok im gonna try my question here. Tried it on another site and got only 1 reply.. Hoping soming of you guys can give me some input.. Have an 01 F-250, was looking to upgrade my turbo with a turbomaster wastegate, WW and compressor housing. But after reading some other forums i was thinking about going with an non-wastegated e-series turbo with the WW.. Do you guys have any input on this and are there ny of yall running the van turbo and how do you like it?
The van turbo is kind of a "baby step" in the turbo upgrade process. It's still a stock turbo, still only good for around 30 psi, the only difference is its non wastegated and the exhaust housing is larger (1.15 vs. 0.84). It's not a bad option if you don't plan on going wild with power mods, otherwise I think I'd just buy a ported shroud housing and a 1.0 exhaust housing for the stock turbo until you get ready to upgrade to something like the 38R.
prob gonna go with the van turbo, but wondered if the bigger turbo housing would cause turbo lag on the low end? will this cause my truck to smoke even more than it already does until the turbo spools up???
well i dont to a lot, but i do quite a bit of interstate driving so it seems it would do better there around town would what id have to watch i think.. just wondered how much lag id have on the low end before it would spool up and if its signifigant and would create more smoke and keep my egts up?
