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.

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
