Hello psn. I’m looking for a new turbo for my 97 7.3. I’m trying to push 500 hp and around 900 ftlbs of torque. I have an intake and I know I’m going to need injectors, hpop, etc etc. I’m also going to manly use this for hot street and some towing. any ideas? Thanks!

Agreed, so many different variables to what turbo you end up with, number one being, "What is your budget?"

So the budget difference between 475 hp and 550 hp is huge. It's pretty much double if not more. Since you said some towing I would lean towards 475 hp "plan" which is still around $5k

You will also find that the higher the horsepower and torque the lower the dependency of the engine.

So if I wanted a dependable tow vehicle I would lower the HP some

So again what's the budget?

Your going to have to buy a t4 kit with sxe 366 $2400. Then you have to source an inter cooler $400.
Plus the whole slew on mods for that injector including competition fuel system, head studs, valve springs, push rods, bigger hpop, gauges, tunes, plus a tranny.

I really don’t have a budget. This is a truck that I want to be working on for pretty much the rest of my life. So basically whenever I have the money, I’ll buy the parts or whatever I need
