you can bairly even see it, its covered by so much

its going to be very hard for the after market to squeez a bigger one in there. And also performance tune this thing which will create higher EGT's

I dont know why ford didnt wrap the pipes.

Emissions System
The Scorpion's EGR system feeds exhaust from the passenger-side manifold at -----------1,472 degrees------(and the turbo sits on top before the dead center tightes could be) to a new, hot-side Pierburg EGR valve. This means the control of EGR flow is done before the EGR goes through the cooler-no other diesel in a pickup does this-in order to prevent EGR sludge buildup in the valve and engine.

The aftermarket is going to have to design a turbo for this truck first. A single stage won't operate like the factory one does. Also, from a heat transfer standpoint, this is the best design that Ford has come out with to date because the EG aren't going to spend much time in the engine. That's why they reversed the plenums on this engine.

my comment up top. They will want to make a new turbo but they donít have to and why did you bring up that it wont work with a single stage, of course it wont. Redesigning one isnt the hard part, it is making a bigger single shaft 2 stage to fit in there and the exh tubes.

Actually, Not......

The 6.7L is designed to be worked on with the CAB ON...everythign can be accessed with pulling 4 BOLTS.....and the entire COOLER PACK comes off the front of the engine...

The Time to pull Turbo's, Injetors, and other parts have been cut in HALF, compared to the 6.4...

If ya don't believe me, read some of the Press Release information....I have no need to since I was IN THE PRESS RELEASE BACK IN SEPTEMBER!
