7.3 questions PERFORMANCE RELATED
Ok, I have a 2002 EX with the 7.3L I need a few ideas/questions answered because I will be honest, Im no GURU. I have the factory turbo and I want to upgrade. Everyone tells me that the Garrett "Ball Bearing" version of mine is good for a few HP, but its better to pony up and spend $1500 for the Stage 2 upgrade by either Garrett or Banks ect. ect. Now for the good part.
Rumor mill has it that you can take a 94-97 turbo (compressor side) and mate it to my stock turbo (2002) for the same larger intake and the 30% more air flow. Is this true??? If so, has anyone done it and what's the results?
Been told that the stage 2 turbo on the older 94-97 Powersrtokes was a waste of money and that gains were minimal, but the compressor sides match up to the 99-2002 turbos.
Help from the 7.3 gurus??
