6.0 Turbo in my '99 7.3

Got a 6.0 turbo from a guy the other day. Planning on replacing the 7.3 slug (turbo) thats under my hood with the 6.0 turbo. I got a place that will do all the installation. I had heard there was someone who had built a controller for the vanes in these turbos. I am willing to pay this person to build me one of these for mine.

I don't know how much a 6.0 turbo will do for you. Without a compressor map you going into it blind, hoping it will work. The 6.0 turbo, obviously, is make for an engine with 1.3 liters less then the 7.3, so your probably going to be pushing the limits of the turbo, just in stock form.

Gimmie a minuite and I'll see if I can find that video.

If I can't find anyone to help me out with the controller, I guess I'll be forced to try an sell the Turbo. It only has around 33K miles on the 6.0 Turbo. If anyone would be interested.

Just would love to make this one work.
