Re: 6.0turbo on a 7.3

I'm actually looking at doing it myself. The VGT control is the hard part. Still trying to find a module that will drop voltage in relation with building boost. The 6.0 turbo is a little small for a modded 7.3 though. Was looking at a dt466 turbo too. I have a d66 now and barely can stand the lag of that. So looking for alternates that doesn't involve twin turbos. But if your looking to tie the VGT open you wont really hear the whistle anyway cuz thats what make it light when just driving around. BTW there is a video on you tube with one a 7.3.

Re: 6.0turbo on a 7.3

I was thinking of moding the boost control to a mechanical like a wastgate would have to play with the springs a little we have a diesel junkyard down the road from me and I have some friends there they help me find what I'm looking for what els could we get a Vgt from

Re: 6.0turbo on a 7.3

I built my turbo from three different ones pedestal came from the 444e the compressor and shaft came from a 96 7.3 and the snail came from the 99 I used my lathe to bore out the center and ported and polished the rest the wastgate controller came from a cumins 8.3 I'm getting a good spool up and about 27 psi need to check the back pressure

Re: 6.0turbo on a 7.3

If your going to mechanically control it I would go for the HE351VE turbo off the cummins and there cheap too. The 6.0 turbo has no way to tie into the VGT because its all internal because its controlled by oil.
