stock turbo upgrades

Ok so im new to the whole upgrading a turbo scene. With that said. My dad gave me a like new (150miles) stock turbo form a 2001 f350 dually. Which he pulled form his truck back in 01 and replaced with banks. So what would you do to upgrade this turbo? also can you add ballpark prices? My trucks mods are 6637, zoodad, 4.5" straight stacks, gauges, and soon to come a custom tuned chip. So what would you do with this turbo? thanks alot!

My buddy upgraded his exhaust housing. I don't know enough about it, but hopefully someone here can explain that a bit better for both of us. I'm looking to upgrade my turbo as well, but don't have the cash to go to the 38r yet.

For a stock turbo, about $400 look into a ported shroud. i know ATS and a few others make them. It'll flow a bit better and prevent turbo surging.

There are only a couple things that you can upgrade on a stock turbo... a ported housing or wheel, can't do both, upgraded exhaust housing and wastegate. I have a Banks wheel and still get some surge, I hear that the ported housing works better. As for the wastegate, there are mechanically actuated conversion kits the help hold more boost.

Upgrades available as posted above should be based on what all your planing...just a chip you may not need anything...or 90% of the time a WW will solve the surge issues from a chip.

Exactly what he said, and in his next post. If you plan on going with bigger injectors just get a 38r. If you are staying stock don't waste the money on the above listed turbo "upgrades", the stock turbo doesn't like much power so it's not worth dumping money into it.

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.
