Turbo question

Anyone know if the turbo that is on the 6.0 is the same as or smaller/larger than the one that is on the 7.3's. If it's larger has anyone ever swapped them?

I don't know about the size, but there are some huge differences in the fundamental design of the turbo making a 6.0 to 7.3 swap very difficult if not impossible.

All of the 7.3 turbo's (from pre-powerstroke-early '03) were a fixed geometry on the vanes. The 6.0 introduced a Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) and are much more complicated beast, and need the PCM programming to control the vanes and the boost.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. At least now I won't tear it all apart and realize it.
