7.3 turbos?

Hi everyone I am from the 6.0 crowd, but my brother is looking at maybe buying my dads 7.3 from him a little info on the truck is its a 2001 f250 ccsb 7.3 it has a k and n intake and a 4 inch turbo back exhaust. I know the 6.0 ppl on here have a lot of respect for mtw turbos and that is what most ppl run. my question is what are ppl using in the 7.3 turbo wise looking for less lag and more power throughout the rpm range thanks in advance guys

No need for a custom turbo, we don't use vgt so there is no need to try to pimp a vgt turbo. You can go to a t4 setup but really if there aren't future plans for big power a 38r is a pretty solid turbo up to the 450-475hp range and will spool well with stock injectors. The king of turbos for the 7.3 is a garrett gtx4294r but that is a $2800 turbo and a mount kit will run you $1400 but I wouldn't run that without bigger injectors.

With that turbo and stock sticks can you see 450 at the rear wheels? And is there a lot of other mods to make that happen?

No, I'm saying after 450-475 there are better turbo choices, the most a 7.3 will ever possibly see on stock injectors is 300-330hp.

its a few extra bucks, but if i wanted to "upgrade" turbos, i would go with one that you can rebuild, if shiat hit the fan. The 38r is not rebuildable. Check out the T-4 setup with S366 turbo...

S366 Complete Turbo Kit, Ford (1994-03) 7.3L, stainless steel

366 will flow more but will spool a little slower since it is journal bearing and has a bigger turbine wheel but will have more top end.

So will it spool like the stock turbo or slower? Or is it just slower then the 38r?
