03 6.0 turbo fit a 02 7.3

I am wondering if the 2003 6.0 turbo will fit on my 2002 7.3??

Any help is appreciated.

I am almost certain that the 6.0l turbos will not work in the 7.3's The 6.0's have veined turbos and the design will not work.

I'll let the more experienced answer with the proper info

It's been done. Is it worth it? No. Even if you put the time and money into making it work right, the 6.0 turbo is still almost too small for stock injectors.


If you just want a louder whistle get a WW. If you want an actual upgrade, look into the WW G2 or a 38R.

The 6.0 turbo is a variable geometry turbo. It will not work on a 7.3. The PCM has no idea what it is or what to do with it. If you did bolt it up the truck would have no power and smoke like a freight train.

Here check this out. May clear things up for ya.

Not trying to derail here, but 6.0 injectors are bigger than 7.3 injectors as far as fuel flow and the 6.0 charger cleans ours up fine. A 6.0 turbo would be more than enough air for 7.3 injectors. Would be a pain to get the turbo to work though. Just my .

Yes it'll work. All you need is some duck tape, wood screws, and a flux capacitor.
