HELP! WHAT TURBO DO I HAVE????

Ok my 99+ F250 (in avatar). My OEM turbo took a crap a while back a friend of mine had a Garrett turbo he took off his truck before he sold it. He said it was aftermarket, this was before I knew anything about P strokes. I bought it for $200.00. How do I determine what it is so I know how hard I can push it??? Its way bigger then my OEM one & the inlet tube is 3 1-2 inches or so wide were my OEM one was tinny. This thing sounds like a 747 under the hood, u can hear it from about a 1/4 mile away whistling comming at yea, from the outside.

Thanks for the help in advance!!

If you can hear it alot more in the cab than a stocker, theres a possibility it could be a 38R.

Re: HELP! WHAT TURBO DO I HAVE????

its probably 2-3x louder, the surge at 15-18 psi that the OEM one had is all gone. makes 33 to 35 psi WOT on the highway.

Re: HELP! WHAT TURBO DO I HAVE????

Heck ya! That was a few years ago I had no idea what it was or was worth! I got probably 35k on it so good deal.

38r ??? good turbo??? expensive???

Now am I safe to upgrade to stage 2's & already have a CAI, gauges, upgraded tranny, ex is 4in strait to 7in stack. I have a Custom tune chip from DPS he said to bring it back for a free tune if I ever do any major changes & he would re burn in.
