You'll like it. I tried to buy mine back from the guy I sold it to right after I bought my Super Duty 7 years ago. He wouldn't sell it a week later and I offered a lot more money than he gave for it. I got to drive it again a few weeks ago and it still runs strong.

Wasn't the Banks an aftermarket turbo for the 7.3 IDI before it was turboed by Ford?

Thanks guys.... I'm freak'n excited! That same truck here in Canada is worth more then twice that amount even with the high mileage it has.

I currently own an '86 F350 Xcab Dually 4x4 with 6.9L and it's a great work horse but because of its' age and living in Canada, it's rusting bad; but I will still keep it.

Just curious of how you are going to get it back to Canada. IIRC, it is in Houston.

It looks to be a banks kit. Banks does not make a turbo. On the OBS trucks, they put a smaller turbine housing on the stock turbo to make it spool up faster and make more boost than stock.

It is made by either Banks or ATS or Hypermax. So yes, banks might make a turbo. You may have gotten me on this one.

Let me rephrase, "Banks does not make a turbo for the powerstroke"

They make a compressor wheel, wastegate actuator and a turbine housing, parts.

Ok guys, I've got the truck home; drove it from Houston, TX to near Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for 30 hrs straight with only about 2 hrs break and it ran fantastic.

One question.... shouldn't this Banks Sidewinder have an air breather in front of it? There ain't none.
