unfamiliar with ford

ok, so here is my situation. there is an opportunity for me to get ahold of a 2000 7.3L, but the thing is it has a blown turbo. My question is can you take a tubo powerstroke and make it a nonturbo? and if so, how>? is it as simple as eliminating the turbo and rerouting some pipe? i dont need a rage truck just a 4x4 for driving around in the snow for a shoveling crew

Yea, it'd dump way too much fuel, you'd have to put different injectors, tuning, different exhaust manifolds, different intake piping. I'm sure there's way more.

Why not just spend a few bucks and get a reman with some kind of warranty or at the very least a decent used one?
