will a late turbo upgrade fix smoking problem

I installed stage 2 AD injectors and a 17* hpop now smokes like heck. Will a late turbo upgrade solve smoke issue?

What kind of late turbo are we talking about? What kind of truck do you have?

It's an early 99 and I'm thinking a late 7.3 turbo will work.

I think those are just about the same. You'd be better off doing an intercooler.

Early '99 was intercooled


A cheap alternative would be a van turbo off of an E-series van. There are some deals here and there, and they go pretty quick. I'd say they are in high demand among people who don't want to break the bank

Yes it already has an intercooler. I thought the later 7.3 had a larger turbo.

If your intercooled then you have a late 99. The early's were still the OBS style. But The lates had different injectors and all the same size turbos

EDIT::I did not know the early's were intercooled. How much smoke are we talking about? What chip are you running?

The only thing OBS on an early '99 is the 15* HPOP. The rest is different
