Question Got me a van turbo.

My dad got me a van turbo today, so now, what do I do. What are your opinions on swapping the comp wheel or swapping the whole thing? Are there any dangers not having a waste gate? I don't have any gauges yet so I can't monitor boost and EGT, if that even matters. Will I have to worry about doing the boost fooler mod yet either way?

I'm going to rebuild the turbo here in the next few weeks while I rebuild my tranny, so I'd love for everyone to get a good pro/con discussion going.

Thanks!

Does it just bolt straight on or does it have a different pedistal?

You will need the beans van flange adapter. I just got done installing a new van turbo on my truck and I bought the beans adapter for it. The EGT drop was amazing. Probably a legitimate 300 degrees or more. I ordered mine with the banks wheel on it but I am putting my straight blade back . . . don't like the banks wheel and never had any surge anyway.
