Van Turbo

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.

I'm gonna say the van turbo is a pretty decent upgrade if you can find one cheap.

The 1.15 exhaust housing will lower your EGT's, and the 1.10 Compressor housing will get you more volume of air, instead of just more psi.

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???

It will take it a little longer to light with the bigger housings, but when it does, hold on!

Are you looking for a faster truck empty or are you looking to make the truck a better tow rig?

The way I understand it, the Van turbo is very nice for towing but does not much for the truck when empty.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
