Exclamation New Turbo Help!!!

Just bought my first Powerstroke. It's a 99' F250 in mint cond. with 175 thousand on the clock. Got a great deal on it. Brought it one of the local Diesel perf. shops around here to get it checked out. Asked around and I was told that these were the people to see. The head tech told me that the turbo was cooked and it would need to be replaced. I knew this might be the case. I test drove it and it lagged a bit of power compared to the other diesels I had driven (mostly 6.0's and one 5.9) He told me he could get me a Hi-tech " Big Bad Woof " for about 1200 bucks. A few days later he told be he couldnt get the Hi-tech do to problems with his distributor. He ended up putting a Garrett and told me this turbo would be about the same as the Hi-tech. The truck runs great and is putting out about 17-24 psi. I was hoping for more boost seeing that he told me the Hi-tech put a max of 40 psi and I could run 30-35 no problem and without head studs. I cant seem to find this turbo anywhere and I'm wondering if its a stock replacement or what. It's def not a Garrett ball bearing. All it says on the turbo is Garrett 1.10 A/R . The rest of the stamped codes are as follows P/N is 182587809, D605481007, BCL2226. I just wanna find out whats goin on here. Any help would be great

Sounds like you may have gotten a stocker with the 1.10 a/r. It wouldn't be considered an upgrade over the stock turbo, or be classified as a Big Woofer or Garrett Upgrade.

You will need more fuel to make more boost... Must be an early 99 with that turbo number, thats why they didnt put the other turbo on... You have to change out the Up Pipes, Y pipe, Intake Manifolds, Turbo pedistal and colector to go to the later style turbos...

About the only upgrade for the early 99's is the D66 turbo that Beans sells. And its a good option for most...

Probably bring back up a dead thread but what the heck my 96 that I just got has the same turbo it says garrett and 1.10 A/R on it sounds like its comparable to the stock turbo did mine come stock with it? or is a 96 supposed to have it?
