First diesel truck and I got a ??

New to diesels and the forum. I bought a 2000 ccsb f250 and know the guy who traded it in, he says its an upgraded turbo. Any way to tell?

Ask the guy who traded it in.

Take a picture of it and post it. We can tell you pretty easily. I'd guess his upgrade is simply installing a wicked wheel which technically is an upgrade, but a minor one. Beyond that, make sure the truck is running like its supposed to and be proud of your new truck!

Looks stock to me. Might be a wicked wheel on there or the dude fibbed a bit. Would have to pull the intake tube off to check for a wicked wheel

I thought he was fibbing a little but I wasn't sure what other turbos Garrett made or how much boost a stock one made.

Yep that's a stocker. Pull that black pipe off and you'll see the impeller. If it has vanes that are different sizes then it's a wicked wheel. Helps to cure turbo surge and flutter.
