Aftermarket turbo question

Ok my 06 f250 turbo has a bad turbo seal and i was told it cant be rebuilt, it has to be replaced. Not sure how credible that is but heres my question. Can i put on an aftermarket performance turbo that will give me less turbo lag without changing anything else. All i want to do is buy a really good turbo that will spool faster on take off but still perform good on top end without any modifications. . If so, can someone please tell me a good dealer or company that i could purchase one from.

Simple answer, No.
Any turbo other than the stock turbo you will have to make other modifications.

Yeah do a Powermax, it is just a slight upgrade from stock.

There is no way to get what you want without additional mods.

BUT there is a solution that should be the same cost as a OEM turbo. Get a PowerMax and an SCT with custom tunes. Best money spent right there!!

Not looking for alot from the turbo, but i have to replace it anyways so i thought why not get something better quality and maybe get rid of some turbo lag. Cant see giving 1000.00 for a stock one when i can get a better one for a little more. I guess im confused...

If it is just a bad seal then yes it can be rebuilt... Just search for a reputable turbo shop near where you live and they should be able to do it for a couple hundred bucks... They will probably pull it apart, put new seals and bearings in it and then re-assemble and balance it.

How is he supposed to do that with out a custom tune? With out a tune for the Powermax it will perform worse than the stocker.

If you would go with a powermax you will have more lag down low unless tuned for it. your best bet would be to buy a 04 inletpipe $109 with out the egr baffle and just buy a center rotating housing from tousley $600ish. all you have to do with the rotating housing is move the compressor valute over and turbine housing over. If you need a new unision ring the part # is 3C3Z-6C885-A $113
