turbo could it be made to work?

ok i have seen alot of threads lately on doin turbo swaps using turbo's off other engines, and well i have a early 99 with the original turbo. i was wandering if someone has a list of turbo's that could be transformed to fit the 7.3. im looking for something that will keep the engine reliable but will give me more power and cooler egt's. but also i have access to a t70/t67 turbo and was wandering if this turbo would be better than the stock turbo. now i know this stuff will not bolt up directly so mounts will have to be done but i am just curious as to what could be used to push more power and run cooler.

Early 99- 3.5" shackle lift, single stack, beans tunes, nvk3 pcm, 35's, billet tc, shift kit, tymer intake, some stereo stuff, 05 head lights, 05 chrome edition grill, HID's, 2 hella 500's(SOLD)

H2E is one. But you'd be better off just buying the whole kit.

You need to look at the airflow characteristics of the turbo and compare it to the stock one. First answer one question....why do you want a different turbo? Then the answers will become more clear.

My answer was to control backpressure, stock boost pressure was adequate for stock injectors BUT the backpressure was comsuming more hp than it was creating. With the large turbo I held the same boost pressure and reduced the backpressure by half. This means that it was requiring half the power to drive the turbine with the same results.

If you post more info on the turbo like: inducer/exducer of the compressor wheel and housing A/R as well as the turbine footprint and exducer and turbine A/R you will get more opinions on if it will work or not.

You have all the turbo you need for those little AB injectors. Not to mention to run a 38r you would have to swap all the crap from a late 99.

A D-66 bolts right in and would be an upgrade from stock.

the d66 is the only drop in for an early 99
