03 turbo install

I might be installing a 03 turbo on my 06 and I was wondering what all would be needed besides the turbo to fit right in? do I need to change out anything? what difference can I see at all if any with the change up? What would yall recommend the going rate for a 03 turbo only?

The pedestal needs to be changed as well as the rear bolt is in a different location. Other than that the it should drop right in.

I got a re-man '03 w 1yr warranty -unlimited mileage for about $ 800 with core exchange

You could have got a brand new Powermax for $1200 with no core, sold your old turbo and come out about the same.

Just the whistle it produces. Its alot louder than anyother turbo on a 6.0. Put a straight pipe exhaust on your tuck and you'l understand!
