looks about like an sd66 but they don't say what size inducer it has. precision had a drop in that was pretty tough but they quit makin it. do you feel like your turbo is too small?

Turbo ?

I think it should be large enough. I"m kind of excited about turbonetics T4 base for the 7.3. Between my friends and I that pull tractors, we have alot of decent turbo's that we could swap in and out to see what works best.

well lots of places make t4 mounts, but turbo size depends on injector size and with stock i wouldn't do over 66mm.
