You're actually going to pay 1700 dollars for that? I wouldn't pay 300 for it. That's just another in a long like of bs chargers for the 7.3, all the same, all different names, all worthless.

Re: High Tech Turbo

Fwiw, you can get a Garrett 38r for the same price, maybe cheaper. Any particular reason you were looking at that one, or were you just looking in general?

Re: High Tech Turbo

It's an epidemic...

let's drop $700 in wizz wheels, ported compressor housings, high flow turbine outlets, and big whatever wastegate actuators...and pick up exactly '0' horsepower. and not have one iota more reliability than a stock turbo.

then, instead of getting any decent turbo...let's drop 14, 16, and now 1700+ freaking bucks on a POS re badged turbo, that has LESS performance than a STOCK turbo...

there should only be about 4 or 5 turbo's considered for a 7.3L...and only one or two in the sub 500rwhp category

stock 200hp-370hp
Garrett BB 200hp-450hp
Hypermax H2e 300-475hp
Garrett GT42 400-550hp
Sledgehammer 450-550hp
BFH 550+
Garrett GT45 550+

if you'll NEVER need to make more than 450hp on a single..get a Garrett BB.

Re: High Tech Turbo

A modded H2e is slightly smaller (~66-71mm) than a Sledgehammer(76mm)...it's a good turbo though.

No. I stated in my original post that I was looking into the 1.00 wastegated turbine housing option for your stock late 99-2003 7.3 that is listed for $260.00. Follow the link and scroll down to the third item listed.

Just looking in general. "Shopping around" a guy I work with runs one of there turbos on his obs with aftermarket injectors and he likes it.

Re: High Tech Turbo

I have heard good results from upgrading to the 1.0 turbine housing on a stocker. But I think you would be happier to save some more and get the Garrett BB turbo. That is my plan sooner or later.
