Turbo Upgrade

Hello everyone,

A friend of mine can get all kinds of factory parts from various manufacturers at 10-15% below dealer cost and tax free to boot. I was wondering if there was a truck that came with a turbo that would be a worthy upgrade to the factory turbo on my 02 F350. I am looking for something that spools quicker than the factory Garrett turbo and would be good to about 400 hp as I most likely have PMR's. Did the gt38r ever come from the factory on a vehicle? I figure that would be the easiest to swap in but am not apposed to a T4 mount turbo. Thanks in advance for any info.

Justin

Those damn slush boxes and their torque converters Oh, well I guess I just have to figure out how to put a 6.0 turbo on my truck. Thanks.

Damn, looks like the 6.0 turbo really is too small for the 7.3. Oh, well.

Per CSIPSD

"Its too small on a 6.0... why would you want to install it on a 7.3... Get a T4 kit and mount a S300 series or Gt series..."

6.0 Turbo on 7.3

I know he is not the end all be all authority on this stuff, but it looks like he has had a lot of experience with various turbos on the 7.3. After doing some research it looks like this is a pretty solid combination:

Alliant AC codes w/100% nozzles or 238/30 hybirds (leaning toward the single shots for MPG and should be ok on stock hpop)
38r
Mild Gearhead, Beans or PHP tunes

So, it looks like I need to start with the pyrometer and then the PHP Hydra. After that, will probably by the Alliant AC codes and then the turbo. May be able to get a deal on the AC codes through my buddy but will still need to buy the 100% over stock nozzles. Too bad the 38r isn't stock on something.

OBS trucks are NOT a T4 foot. They are a T3... close, but not the same.

Of all the set ups I have run, the AC injectors and a 38R in the wifes Excursion is the best yet... I would love to throw a standard H2e on her rig one of these days, think it would make it that much better.

Thanks for the info. IIRC, she has PMR's in her truck, right? Does her injectors have the stock nozzles?
