Turbo work?

I have a 99 PSD with a DP tuner, stage one intake, 4inch strait pipe, itp boost fooler, and pyro and boost gauges. I want to buy a complete rebuild kit that comes with the banks wicked wheel for $160. I was just wondering how hard it will be to install all these things and do i have to get it balanced, or if i take my time and do it right should it be good enough? alos, what else do u guys recomend i do while i have the turbo out to maybe get some more power or make my stock turbo more effiecent? Thanks

The 7.3 stock turbo is the easiest one to rebuild, according to a guy on Ebay who sells a complete rebuild kit for $99. He has owned his own turbo shop for 20 years and many have used his kit and say it is good. You shouldn't need to have the WW balanced, but don't expect any difference either.

What was the build date of your 99? If it is an early99, you already have a WW from the factory.

Early 99 (Born on 11-20-98) F350 CC LWB 4X4
north of 480hp and south of 13.7sec

Why does everybody say gut the EBPV? Then I am going to say prove it after you answer.

It eliminates flow restriction AND eliminates the possibility of a malfunction and it sticking CLOSED. I haven't done it yet, I should have done it when I installed the WW but I did the lazy mans way and just took apart the turbo housing. I still have an O-ring oil leak to fix too, so I'll have a combo repair day.

But not now, AFTER duck season.
