Turbo

I am debating on throwing a van turbo in my truck I have found a few at junkyards for like 350 but i am sketchy of doing this just because I Don't know why it is there and feel the yard man may not know what he is talking about my question is is it worth or just save for a 38r.. I am not running sticks yet but I will be soon or should I just do a wicked wheel and a 1.0 housing

Early 99 F350-Sold
01 Excursion-Sold
98.5 Cummins-Sold
02 F250- Stock

If you plan a turbo upgrade in the future, save your money unless you find a van turbo for under a 100 bucks.

No surge and nice spool up. It will support a little bigger than stock injector as well.


Trey if you are planning on sticks. Just wait and save for a 38r
