Arrow Turbo questions

Ok, I have a 2002 EX with the 7.3L I need a few ideas/questions answered because I will be honest, Im no GURU. I have the factory turbo and I want to upgrade. Everyone tells me that the Garrett "Ball Bearing" version of mine is good for a few HP, but its better to pony up and spend $1500 for the Stage 2 upgrade by either Garrett or Banks ect. ect. Now for the good part.

Rumor mill has it that you can take a 94-97 turbo (compressor side) and mate it to my stock turbo (2002) for the same larger intake and the 30% more air flow. Is this true??? If so, has anyone done it and what's the results?

Been told that the stage 2 turbo on the older 94-97 Powersrtokes was a waste of money and that gains were minimal, but the compressor sides match up to the 99-2002 turbos.

Help from the 7.3 gurus??

What size injectors are you going to get? That will determine what you should do for the turbo.

I would do stage 1s or small hybrids. You have a PMR motor so you don't want to go to big of injectors. 400HP is the limit for those rods, you'll need good tuning to run injectors also. I'm going with stage 1s for mine and keeping the stock turbo but I'm adding a 1.0 wastegated exhaust housing to help with the exhaust temps.

I just put the 38r on my 02 Excursion and would do it again hands down.I plan on putting new injectors next year but the 38r with my bully dog at 15lbs of boost is the same as my stocker at 23lbs.The only differences I see from your ex to mine are the downpipe ( mine is 4" ) and lift kit ( I went up 2.5 frt and 2 rear).

I hope so. I'm excited to see what Bill can get out of that engine and be reliable. I'm sure it will be impressive and informitive too.
