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

Can i ask why? i understand the cpu is programmed to assume boost and fueling, but besides that, sorry for the questions, just trying to get a complete picture

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.

For future reference, if that person has an idea tell them to keep it to themselves
