Early 99 7.3 turbo rebuild

Is there a step by step turbo rebuild process somewhere or someone that can tell me?

I would strongly recommend upgrading to the late 99 or oversized turbo. It is more work but worth it.
I put a late 99 turbo with a wicker wheel in my truck, had to update the pedestal and all that. But then I drove it. I went from maxing out at 9-10 psi to making out at 28 psi.
It is so much more enjoyable to drive a truck that uses 10 psi at half throttle to accelerate.
Just a thought.

The truck doesn't belong to me, it's a friend of my dad. He has already bought a rebuild kit with an upgraded billet wheel. He just wants to see about me rebuilding it for him.

Rocktamer how much did you have in the conversion. I would love to do it to mine but have had trouble figuring the cost.

A little under a grand. If your interested I can point you in the right direction. It was $700 for the assembly, $120 for the pedestal conversion and $75 for the wicked wheel

Sure any directions you would point would be great. I'm not gonna do it tomorrow cause my turbo works fine. I figure if I acquire some things when I can then I'll be setup to swap it all out when need be.

Thats a good thing. I picked up the down pipes, plenum, spyder, and pedestal from the scrap yard. Then got the T4 conversion kit wit out all the accessories. Saved about $800.
Do some research, youll find what you need and ill answer any questions you have.

So the 1999 turbo and pedastoll is different from 2002 and 1999? I got a2002 and my boost is all funny. So this sounds like something I would want to do if the 99 are better
