Impulse buy... 03 turbo.

Ok.. so I bought an 03 turbo. Coming with the vgt and pedastal. Think I got a decent deal. I know I am really not going to gain anything but a whistle right? When I stud her I'll get a MTW turbo and injectors. Anyway I am probably going to clean it. But is there anything I need to really change besides the pedestal to make it work. I already have an updated drain and fill tube. Thanks guys!

You don't even need the pedestal
Jst use the 05 pedestal, and not use the back bolt.
Two side bolts, and four pipes will hold that turbo in place more then you can imagine!!!

Many guys do the exact same thing

It's coming with the pedestal, so spend 2 minutes extra to swap them and do it right. Only 4 10mm bolts that hold it in.

The 03 pedestal with its stupid legs raised up in the air make it a beach to install the turbo compared to the 05+ pedestals... I would....take the 03 pedestal and throw it at my neighbor..



Just joking, but if you don't like your neighbor....well then
