van turbo?

hey guys. ive got a question about turbos. i just bought a 2001 f-350 with an afe stage 1 intake, php chip, 4 inch straight pipe to 5 inch miter cut stacks. i am experiencing some surge when i hammer on it a little bit. i was looking at buying the ATS ported housing because its an almost guranteed fix. a friend of mine told me that the van turbo is a great drop in replacement that will provide better performance, cure surge and lower egts....plus you can find one for a couple hundred bucks more than just the housing. is this true? thanks for the help!

Re: van turbo?

Van turbo would be a good upgrade. Just get a van turbo adapter and a wicked wheel and you will have no more surge.

Van turbo is a drop in replacement you just need to get the adapter for the exhaust housing.. i dont know if in the long run if its cheaper than the ats housing but it is a good option to cure surge issues. I think all said and done after i had mine done ive got about 400$ in it after selling my stock turbo.. only difference in the van turbo and a stock turbo is the exhaust housing size. stock is .84ar and van turbo is 1.15ar and non wastegated.

do they not last as long or something? i mean the ATS housing is a $430 part that shouldnt need "maintenence". im not looking to build this truck or anything. i just want a reliable, daily driver, and towing truck.

Yeh should last as long as any other turbo. Ive not had a problem yet out of mine and ive put around 15k on it. I rebuilt mine myself and installed the WW and non ebpv pedistal.. Should hold up just fine....

No it spools up slower than the stock turbo due to the larger exhaust housing. Its pretty laggy on the low end, mine spools up i think around 1600rpm or so.. but once it spools egt's barely go up compared to the stock superduty turbo.
