Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

If your planning on staying with the stock sticks I would rebuild your stock turbo and pout a 1.0a\r housing on it. Spools up much faster off the line.

If your planning on larger injectors (Stage 1 or 2) then go with beans D-66. Its a drop in turbo.

Any bigger on injectors than you will need a custom mount or hyper max mount kit and your choice of some nice turbos--but you will need some $$$$$

Intercooling the stock charger will do a lot.

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

Ic and a 1.0 if your not gonna go any bigger than stage 1s! I ran my 2s2s with the stock turbo for aawhile spooled great no really problems ither than being wore out lol its all about plans for your truck. I did the t4 mount because I plan on making my truck a puller one day. So the custom mount was a better option! There aren't many ways to gain boost with out fuel!

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

I do a lot of towing with my truck (it's my work truck/personal truck) and I ordered the 1.0 turbine housing from Beans. I did this because I hear that it allows the turbo to boost in a lower RPM range, which I like for my towing situation. I don't like reving my truck to 3000 rpm when towing, thats just silly. So hopefully this turbine housing will lower the boost range down to somewhere that I normally use while towing.

But these guys are right, injectors=more fuel=faster/higher boost.

So you said you wanted fast spool up? Get the 1.0 turbine housing if you are NOT getting bigger injectors

More boost? Then get bigger injectors, reburn the TS chip (to match the new injectors) and stay with the stock turbine housing.

Here's the link for the housing I ordered. Should be delivered today actually.

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

so king7765 how are you liking that new turbo housing? my thing is i wanna get rid of the excessive black smoke yeah it looks cool but thats money going out the tail pipe and when i tow i dont really start boosting unless im at least at 2,000 rpms so what im trying to aim for is faster spool up i think the housing gives more boost? and better mileage i love the truck but im afraid to drive it cause my mileage is not so great its funny these turbo's dont boost just cruising down the highway however my 6.9 IDI would be making a constant 5 psi of boost going down the freeway and that truck would give me 22.5 mpg

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

In the obs trucks, its hard to beat Beans d66. It's affordable, a drop in replacement, and will support some respectable hp #s. If your gonna run big sticks with it, live tuning is almost a must, but Johnathan has a few trucks close to or over 500hp with it. I was gonna go with the d66 until I stumbled into a great deal on an h2e, otherwise I'd be running 1 myself.

Re: best 7.3 turbo upgrade?

I'm still waiting for the turbine housing and gutted EBPV housing to come back from getting Ceramic coated. Been 3 freakin weeks now! I hope they get it done soon, I'm getting bored waiting.

After its in... I'll chime back in with my thoughts.
