Default Project 6.BLOW

tired of having a basically stock truck and decided to redo the top end of the 6.blow. already did egr delete, upgraded oil cooler, new thermostat, updated turbo oil drain, coolant filter and blue spring fuel pressure upgrade and tunes from matt R at gearhead performance. truck runs great and i love it but its time for more.

found a sick deal on a barely used powermax, then i decided to order a race fuel regulated return setup with fuel bowl delete and some 175cc/75% warren injectors. those will be going on when the cab comes off soon at the same time studs and new oem hg's and a 4" turbo back exhaust go on. also in prep i bought a spare motor and took the heads off and sent them off to be machined and ready to install when the cab comes up. planning to also do a live tune from gearhead also after the install.

aaanny ways heres some pics and the list.

stock is a garrett vgt turbo



powermax is a little bigger similar to the gt38r upgrade for the 7.3 (38r is also a powermax). the 6.0 powermax is still vgt but has larger inducer

theres been one ive seen where someone put a stock 6.0 vgt on an obs 7.3 but there no real reason to swap the vgt on to the 7.3 except the whistle. the 6.0 powermax is a direct drop in just like the 38r for the 7.3 no need to change up pipes etc

No added boost? I hear the stock 7.3 can only handle up to 30 psi and up to 25 efficiently, im running 24. The whistle would be nice... ha ha.

You know anything about swapping the impeller with the banks impeller? You seem to know a lot about te turbos, your kind of my go to guy ha ha

haha. i have a buddy with a early 99 7.3 hes currently finishing up studs injectors, hpop, and an s366 turbo. im not sure on the boost numbers but the best bang for the buck with basically every thing else stock is the 38r. your biggest enemy isnt lifting the heads but more the PMR's you have.

and heres the aeromotive regulator
