Re: turbo

I assume you are talking about a 6.0 turbo? I wouldn't think you could use one because they are variable geometry turbos. You truck is not set up to control a vgt. Some 7.3 guys will chime in with good 7.3 aftermarket turbo choices, but don't expect them to sound like a jet. That's a vgt thing...

Re: turbo

I've heard the 38r makes some pretty good noise.
