Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

Black would be a function of better chip tuning. My truck doesn't smoke much while using the tow tune, stageII injectors, intercooler, and the 1.0 housing. Spool time is noticeably better than with the 1.15 housing. After I installed the injectors I got curious about reinstalling the 1.15 so I reinstalled it. The truck turned into a real dog. Went back to the 1.0. Also got 385 hp using the tow tune and 408 with the old 2003 race tune using the stock muffler and electric fuel.

Just another 408hp '97 California Truck with a stock muffler

5 speed, 35 inch tires, 3.55 gears, stock 1.15 exhaust housing, charge air cooler, Swamps 150cc and Swamps tuning.
truck tows great, spools fast, very little smoke in the tow settings and it spends 95% of it's time at 8000+ elevation.

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

i dont have an answer but im dealing with a similar question. my 97 f250 only boosts like 10psi so when looking for a new turbo i came across the bd turbo thruster that boosts 35psi. is that too much to drop in with no other mods??

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

BlackBetty, just a turbo won't gain you more boost. Your truck only boosts to 10 psi because your injectors are stock. My turbo is stock and I hit 33psi with it. You NEED bigger injectors for more boost. I have premium stage II's from Rosewood diesel...... and many other things.

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

ok so what mods do you have to add with the injectors? i thought adding that much fuel with no other upgrades would hurt the truck just as much? sorry im new at this haha
