Stock Turbo Upgrade Questions

Ok I just watched an old Powerblock tv session they did for 7.3 stock turbos.
You use your stock turbo and basically build an improved stock turbo. New compressor housing, new turbine wheels ans waste gate?
the guy said a stock turbo will push 20 psi and this "upgraded" turbo will push 32 psi.
I can not find a part number to look up what it cost or do some research on the thing at all. Can anyone tell me if they have done this. And if its a good upgrade?
I have a 03 powerstroke. And am looking for something like this.
im confident I can switch out the parts just want to hear from someone that has done it how the truck run after!?
thanks in advance for the help!
also if anyone can help me with a model number from banks or a better company that puts out this package id appreciate it!

Re: Stock Turbo Upgrade Questions

Almost all the sites, Diesel Site, Beans, Ats, so on and so on, sell the parts. Ported shroud comp housing and wicked wheel, looking at $500-600 depending on where you buy the parts. Closer to the lower end. I'm pushing every bit of 25lbs on the stocker but more pressure isn't always good. It can still only flow a certain CFM. You have to remember pressure is a measurement of Resistance. Not air flow. Depends on what your needs/wants are on which way to go.

6" lift on 20x10s and 37s, studded, deleted, Powermax and Livewire with Quicktricks tunes, exhaust, intake (Wife's Truck)

Re: Stock Turbo Upgrade Questions

Waste of money, you can spend 800+ dollars to pimp out a stocker or spend 1300 on a 38r which actually is an upgrade.

Re: Stock Turbo Upgrade Questions

Thats why I stated what is your plan. Like said above you could spend almost the same money on the stock and get a 38r with about 30% more air flow.

2003 F-250 CCLB 7.3L
4" lift and PMF traction bar/block setup running 35s on 20x12s. Intake, exhaust, PHP Hydra w/ Gearhead tunes, gauges
2005 F-350 CCLB 6.0L
6" lift on 20x10s and 37s, studded, deleted, Powermax and Livewire with Quicktricks tunes, exhaust, intake (Wife's Truck)

Re: Stock Turbo Upgrade Questions

38r is more airflow and more sound...better for some others find the noise gets old towing etc..
some dont mind it either way.

but if your upgrades are very mild you wont gain anything major by the 38 and pimping the stocker isnt bad at all goal is very important.

but you can spend more on a stocker then a better turbo if you go all out.
ie 400 housing, 200 wheel, 400 up pipes, 400 intake, 200 waste gate controler, 150 spider with egr delete etc....now your in a range of a variety of far more suitable turbos.

if your goals are not bad i would wait for a 2nd generation wicked wheel and call it a day.

Early 99 f350 4x4 crew cab, auto. pmt2 pcm
2001 cup holder ,T500, MAX AC ASSIST AC mod, Diy Twin tymar, TS chip, Powerslots & Hawk pads, ford AIC, ..... with big fat want to list.
