So my buddy that doesn't live local just bought his first ford truck, a 1991 7.3 with lots of new parts and body for a good price. Anyway he swears it isn't turbo charged!? Shouldn't it be?

Nope, they didint come with turbo's till 94.5 i beleive. You could get an aftermarket turbo for them but they didnt come with it from the factory

No I believe thats just when they were first called powerstrokes. Had a buddy with a 93 idi with a turbo on it. They were simply called 7.3 Turbo Diesels.

Relativly easy to swap one in? He really wants to and I told him it can't be that bad since it's the same basic engine and Ford made it in a turbo version later.

not sure about the ats unit, but it takes about 5 hours to put a banks turbo on.

I think the biggest part would be that you need a new exhaust manifold on the one side...at least I'm pretty sure you do

Oh ok...I just remember reading about ATS's unit and they sent you a new manifold for one of the sides the driver's side IIRC

some 93s and the 94s came with turbos, but deffenatly not in 91. My truck has the older ATS turbo kit on it with a Garrett turbo, and seems to have the factory manifolds, just has a up pipe attached to them instead of a standard y-pipe

yup. sure did. the early 94 came as a IDI turbo diesel, and later as a powerstroke.
