Re: Consulting about A Turbo

They work well on either..Infact better imo on auto as spool is more consistant due to load on engine...Auto often has slightly smaller turbine housing, but I wouldn't worry too much...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: Consulting about A Turbo

If I was to put this on a 7.3 truck that probably already has enough power to begin with, would that hurt anything? If it had enough hp, what would be a benefit of having a turbo?

Re: Consulting about A Turbo

Putting a turbo on Diesel is way easier than wih petrol engine!!! Diesels run on detonation....It would gain massive low rpm torque!!

Re: Consulting about A Turbo

What if it already has quite a bit of torque already? Will the tires be able to withstand that much torque? In second gear the ford truck already spins the tires somewhat. What will happen after the turbo is on? I know it will be hard on tires, but how about the engine? Will that put a strain on anything?
