gouges/nicks inside turbo manifold??

i have a 1999.5 f250 7.3 PSD.

i recently changed the clamp connecting the intercooler duct to the turbo manifold and noticed there are a few big gouges and nick in the turbo manifold. does this mean anything???? any problems, etc. occuring?

also, does a 2001 7.3 turbocharger fit in my 1999.5, 7.3 PSD? i have an extra one and it doesnt have any gouges or scratches in the manifold inlet. just in case i should replace the one on my 99.

ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS

Turbo Manifold???

Are you refering to the Compressor Housing and the actual Compressor Wheel??? If you have chips and scratches on the Compressor wheel/housing (inside) you have some filtering problems. Get a better Air Filter! I personnally wouldn't put a post-99.5 turbo anything on a 99.5. The 99.5-03 7.3L turbos are getting replaced by people with the pre-99.5 compressor wheels. (Surge is a PITA!)

I hope I answered your question. Sorry if I missed the point a little!

Yeah ditty is correct if you do any kind of mods such as tuning you will probobly run into surge with your turbo! The whicked wheel is one way to correct or help alleviate the problem.Yes the 99.5 to 2003 turbo is the same so you can swap them out.

im not referring to the turbo compressor, im referreing to the manifold that is bolted to the compressor, it has the 2 intercooler duct pipes connected to the manifold that is bolted to the turbo itself..the nicks are in the manifold...thanks for the responses..

im reffering to the manifold, not the compressor wheel. the nicks are in the manifold which is located behind the engine cover and bolted to the turbo. it has the 2 intercooler pipes connected to it.

thanks for the advice.....so should the manifold be ok if it has nicks in it?

Are you talking about the y-pipe? Hmm yeah I dont know I believe that is a cast piece. Could be from the casting at the factory. That is interchangeable also with 99.5 to 2003 psd's

Take a picture if you can?

As everyone else says, it is a casted part; so who knows what happened with the sand or whatever when your part was being cast? They're all going to be a little different than one another as far as surface finish is concerned because of the casting process.
