7.3 Turbos ?'s Educate me.

The injector thread was a huge success, at any time there's someone reading it. I hope it will continue since there seems to be a huge amount of knowledge in here just waiting to be told.

Now Turbos.

Just when I think I'm starting to grasp the subject my mind gets blown again. So many names and #'s and i'm lost as to what they mean.
Can someone or many please take the time to give their say?

Of the stock OBS/SD turbos what are the diffs and how much power can be had with the various mods?

What Turbos are available (bolt on) for the OBS and where do the belong on the HP pyramid?

Same for the SD 7.3?

What is available in kit or DIY to go even bigger (semi) or compound?

Which vendors sell what and what are the synonimus parts, like 2 vendors selling simular 66mm turbos under different names? I think if we knew why we were buying we'd know what to buy.

Thanks!

Doesn't roll with anyone or tag along to be cool...

For the obs bolt on are you talking drop in? If so the only one is the D66.

Diesel power had a Comp TP38 install on MM's CCLB OBS. There might be more.

I haven't talked to Mike lately, but I believe he's towing with his.
I'll ask how his is doing.
