Turbo for 7.3 Powerstroke

I am about to buy a new turbo for my 2003 7.3 Powerstroke and I need some advice on which brand would be the best turbo to put into my truck. I have been looking around and have liked both ATS and Turbonetics, but I was wondering if others could give me advice.

I live in Maryland. I use the truck mostly for day to day driving but occasionally haul trailors. Im not so concerned with money, but i dont want to spend an arm and a leg. I dont want a huge turbo but one that will still give me a considerable amount of power. If you have any suggestions please let me know and also the amount of horsepower i can gain from that turbo. Thanks.

John Wood, or a BTS.

Marty runs a BTS, i'm pretty sure he's pretty happy with it, and there's a few guys on here with a John Wood's Transmission, specifically strokinearly99, and there pretty happy with it as well,

You can't go wrong with either one!

Here's John Wood's website,

John Wood Automotive - Home


And here's BTS's website,

Brians Truck Shop


Hope that helps
