Hey Im new to this site, I was just wondering if I can put a first generation dodge turbo on my ford diesel.  It is a 7.3 and I know about the banks turbo, but they are expensive! Well any comments or answers are much appreciated!

The Dodge puts out too much boost for your Ford. Your Ford has higher compression so it does not need very much boost 10 psi.

Here's an article with some information.

Look on ebay for a deal on a used one.

My personal goals include developing perpetual motion and bringing power to the people. I’m also working on building a ’87 Ford F-250 7.3L IDI (Project 300) on a paycheck- to-paycheck budget. One day, I’d like it to be a renewable diesel-steam-hydraulic-compressed- air-wind-solar-infinitely-variable-transmission-equipped hybrid, but until then, I’m just happy to have a simple diesel-powered pickup.

Hey what does any body know about the banks turbo for the 7.3 idi.  Is it that big of a difference and would you recommend it?
Thanks
