Turbo Swap

Is it possible to swap turbos from a '99 to an '04 and vice versa? Or is it a no go?

the 7.3 is a fixed vein turbo so there is no way to control the vgt of the 6.0's turbo. 7.3 already have a good sound I think. I mean its no 03 6.0 but its nice imo

I was gettin' ready to ask that cause I've seen you're good with turbos. Yeah, I agree, I was just daydreamin' I guess. Now, if I'm not dreamin', in the 6.0 turbo, you could get so much soot to make that part of the turbo not move, right?

Yes the vanes can get stuck and you have to clean the turbo. This usually happens when the truck sits for a long time or if someone is running a dirty or smoky tune or smoke switch. But it can aslo just happen. Mine stuck back in August, ford replaced it

Not the vane part of it, but the little things that kinda look like little tails, they pivot. Sorry, I can't think of what they're called right now. If you get so much soot around them they won't pivot. So it'd act like a fixed vane, right? Maybe I'm talkin about the VGT. Anyways, how do you go about cleanin' it? I work of the mornin's so mine idles a lot before I go to work to let the heater warm up so I'm sure it has a lot of build up. I'd like to get it cleaned out really good so the vanes don't stick.
