I'm looking at buying a truck with big injectors and am wondering if it NEEDS a turbo right away. It's a 7.3 with 250cc 200% hybrids, on a stock turbo.
It has the proper gauges, and a good custom tow tune. I believe it's a "heavy tow" tune.
I know this isn't the ideal setup for towing, but would like to know if it would work for a little while. Getting the trailer would be the only trip and would be ~5 hours, all highway, mostly flat. Trailer would be under 10,000 pounds. I honestly don't think it's 8,000 pounds, just overestimating.
I would plan on getting a properly sized turbo but getting the trailer as soon as possible would be nice. This would be a one time thing on the stock turbo.
