Fairly new to turbos and to the diesel performance side of things. I have a 2000 F250. Bought it a few years ago. Previous owner has a edge 3 stage in it, bit older, I have never plugged it in and changed the setting all he told me is it was in the economy so stage1.
The only performance thing I have done was throw a mbrp 5" straight pipe under it. 4" down pipe obviously.
rebuilt my turbo a year ago. I was thinking of pulling it off again and throwing a High-Boost Compressor Wheel in. Not sure on brand so open to recomendations.
My main question is should I also do a Banks Power High Performance Wastegate Actuator #24401? XDP sells them.
I live In MN and it is -5F here today. I am a bit confused on looking through other threads about wastegate info mainly because i seem to get lost in the "lingo". I think guys are removing them and plugging the hole but is this smart to do when I am this far north?
Thanks for your help, like I said I just get lost in the lingo and shortened phrases. I know my way around a snowmobile like the back of my hand but the diesel is my next learning curve.
I am not looking for huge gains. Plan on leaving stock injectors as long as possible. truck has 165,000 and going strong. I am towing alot. nothing super heavy but 3k-7klbs is fairly common. Just any little things and as much economy when I am not towing or towing for that matter. keeping egt's down ect ect.
Only a FORD hauls my Arctic Cat down the road!
