6.0 purple colored turbo?

Looking at a 2004 6.0 stroke. test drove it today and It didnt feel or sound at all like my '06. Looked under the hood and found the turbo looked aftermarket. It was purple in color and the truck owner didn't know what size make or anything. The current owner traded trucks (f350 for f550) with his cousin about a year ago and the mods were done by his cousin. I would like to go back to a stock turbo but not sure if the wiring for the vgt turbo is still there? Anyone know how i would go about finding if the wires are present? Or what make the current (aftermarket) turbo is? any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: 6.0 purple colored turbo?

Most likely its an ATS turbo. The wiring for the vgt is a yellow plug with two wires should be laying by the oil filter somewhere.

My guess would be a ATS turbo. Ask him to contact his cousin.

Re: 6.0 purple colored turbo?

yeah hes been trying to get ahold of him for a list of all mods. He knows he did headstuds egr oilcooler and a new tranny 20K ago. I really want to just get into a fairly stock everyday truck right now. What are these turbos worth compared to a stock 03-04 turbo? and if he can't track down his cousin anyway I will be able to tell what mods he might have done? injectors ect?

Just keep the turbo and add some injectors.

The Aurora 3000 is a 58mm charger like stock, only fixed geometry. Good tuning could go a long ways in making it fun to drive.
