Well Now.....

So Saturday afternoon, switched out the fuel filters (YUCK the old one was black) and the air filter and again I kept looking at what I thought was the turbo...... wondering...... is Garrett an OEM turbo or am I just a girl and have no fricking clue.........

So I googled TurboByGarrett.com - Ford PowerStroke

Well looky there, that's what mine looks like! Wonder what else isn't stock???????

Garrett is the stock turbo for the powerstroke, the one in the picture is a Ball Bearing turbo by garrett, if you have one of those, it will be very loud. I would get the serial number off the turbo and see if its stock or a b/b

If you had a ball bearing turbo like that one you would know it. Most likely yours is the stock Garrett unit that came from the factory on all 7.3s.

Yeah unfortunately like they said they did come stock with one, but unless he got it new you never know.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isnt the elbow to the 38R different???

I am pretty sure the inducer size is bigger... thus, it comes with a different elbow...
