ATS ported turbo shroud????

have 99 f350 w 7.3. am looking to do a few upgrades. currently have banks ottomind piggyback chip. aem bruteforce. banks wastegate. banks brake and 4 inch exhaust. the truck is a dd and i am looking to do mods that increase performance, mileage, and lower egts. other plans include ram air hood. fitch fuel catalyst. superchips flashpaq to replace current chip and banks intercooler. just curious if anybody has used the ATS ported shroud and if it is worth 425. also any other ideas on mods would be really appreciated

Early '99 or late '99?

IMO a wicked wheel will do for ~75 what a housing will do for $425. That is if you've got a 'late'99.

Your biggest improvement can be had with a real tuner instead of the Banks crap.

it does stuff

His: '00 F-550

doesn't do as much


it took years to build an incredible site that went to the sh!tter in days

production date

driver's side valvecover, if it's still there. If not, door jamb, but they often differ.

Banks nut swinger, check out the sponsor section. It will open a whole new world of diesel performance. And yes, if you plan on keeping the stock turbo an ATS housing is a good option, helped my truck out quite a bit.

Re: ATS ported turbo shroud????

Welcome to PSN and don't let the Banks bashing bother you. Back on topic, I've done some testing years ago and if you do any pulling or drive in the mountains at all I found that the ATS housing will eliminate the surging you may have and deliver a nice sound from your turbo and a little performance gain as well. The Wicked Wheel (all brands are the same) will eliminate most but not all the surging. Using both did not show any improvement but was very loud if you drive for any given distance. My choice is the ATS housing and I think there is one in the for sale section. Plenty to read on PSN and a lot of great members to help you out when you need it.

Re: ATS ported turbo shroud????

THANK YOU for the useful advice on the turbo housing. i will actually buy that product now. i dont really get the anti banks thing that ive picked up on so far. i am pretty happy with how the stuff performs. im not looking to build a dragstrip monster. just good power mileage and RELIABILITY.
