I might be wrong but if you want a 7.3 turbo you need new up pipes a new pedistal and a new phlenum. I believe Beans or someone sells an entire conversion kit. I think i runs in the $1500 range.

I think the 03 turbo he is talking about is the 6.0 VGT that sounds like a jet. In which case it can be done, but its not really worth the cost.

Can be done but I don't know what you would need to do, besides have somekind of stand alone control box for the VGT System, custom pedestal, down pipe etc...

yepp +1 on whats been said, the 6.0L turbo is a VGT turbo, whereas the 7.3L is not, lots of conversions and things to be taken into account if this was to be possible, and i dont know about the gains vs the money and time to actually make it happen. Better off to just replace yours with an aftermarket one.

I think there's a member on here that has a VGT turbo on his obs 7.3. Anything is possible, it just depends on how much money you want to throw at it, time also.

Big bad lou has done it....and I have seen a truck with it done. It's a rather involved process but it's one of the coolest mods there is for a 7.3. There a thread on here I started.

I agree, can be done, but your way better off just getting a good aftermarket set up.
