Street driven p-pumped 7.3, what turbo?

I know when you spend the money to get the parts to p-pump a 7.3 you wouldn't expect someone to run it on the streets. I am going to put it back together with a stock short block with forged rods. The pump has been rebuilt to stock specs before I bought it and only has either 7 or 8mm plungers but has the nice quick fill cam. I also installed a 5000 rpm gsk and adjustable fuel plate. With the plate slid all the way forward it only puts out 210cc's of fuel. I don't have injectors for it yet either. Since I cant mount a turbo in the stock location I have been thinking about getting something different to use. Is there a turbo on a semi that would be good to use on this? I would perfer something cheap and easy to find for now. When I get tired of tinkering and think I am comfortable with making adjustments on it the pump is going to be sent off and the short block built.

Re: Street driven p-pumped 7.3, what turbo?

Really depends on injs and how much fuel your pumping.
If it is a pee trickle vs ol faithful.
My uneducated guess would be base it on est hp.
Choose the turbo that supports that.
Turbos donlt care what is powering the injectorsl just how much fuel.

Right now it is just get it running, get use to it, and have fun. This isn't a daily diver and I'm trying to make this a learning project (be it good or bad). I don't want to spend a ton on a turbo that i will out grow when I get the pump built and have a lot of fuel. I am just looking for a junkyard turbo that would be usealble with the fuel I have now.

Do you want to stay with a single charger? Or possibly go with twins in the future?

Re: Street driven p-pumped 7.3, what turbo?

210cc's hmmm..... would a GT42 or something similiar be sufficient?

I may be way off track here, just thinking by the amount of fuel he says he's pushin

I think a single for now for simplicity, if I could a find a set of turbos that would work together I might be interested in doing twins. My plans are just to have fun now with cheap stuff and then when I have the pump and engine built have a nice set built up.

Re: Street driven p-pumped 7.3, what turbo?

If it wont fit in the stock location, will it fit on top of the engine at all? Is this going in a superduty with a hood? Not really many places to put the turbo except under the wiper cowl on top of the engine unless you make custom headers towards the front.

You could mount the turbo on the passenger side where most people put their atmosphere turbo for twins. Moremph is running his single there.

My guess for a charger would be a 42 or a S471 or S476. It really depends on your rpm and the amount of fuel you can put in the cylinders.
