thought you guys would like this one.here's some highlights:


7.3L IDI

I chose to use the turbo from a DT466 that I purchased off Ebay Brand New. a little while before for a different project for $200.

I decided to mount the turbo down beside the transfer case where it would be protected from anything hitting it by the skid plate, although something would have to be sticking up pretty high to hit the turbo and not the transfer case first.

It requires a pump to get the oil back to the engine, because now the turbo is below the engine and it cannot just drain the oil back into the engine by gravity like it could if it were mounted high. The easiest method here is to use the mechanical fuel pump on the passenger side of the engine block. This works great with the addition of a check valve at the turbo. Of course this requires you to install an electric fuel, which is a good option anyway.

I bought some 2.5" pipe from Advance Auto and ran it from the turbo outlet to the intake. I had to buy a straight section and 2 90 degree pieces.

I wonder how much body lift is on that truck?

Looking at the firewall in relation to the top of the engine it looks like 3 or 4 inches.

Yea it looks like several inches of lift, it would be nice working on a turbo in the stock location. lol I have had mud,snow and ice packed in my frame way to often to mount a turbo down there. lol

I've always wanted to see a pic of his setup. Agreed that it's not a great spot for a truck that will see lots of mud or dirt. I dont really see much trouble with a street truck though. You could always make a shield for it as well. It certainly leave the engine compartment less cluttered. N/A accessability with turbo preformance.

I guess you stack guys could run a cabover snorkle for the air, it would look pretty cool.

with mounting the turbo down by the frame whats to stop someone from using a power stroke turbo that provides more boost to then inturn be able to run a decent size intercooler? then also keeping in mind to build the engine up with studs and such to make sure you dont blow it apart

Wanna guess how much boost I can get out of my 97 Stroke turbo?

12 PSI

Now you wanna guess how much I get from the 093 ATS turbo on my IDI?

Twice as much..... maybe more.

Right now, my super powerful 97 Stroke can't hold a candle to my IDI.

I don't know why everyone thinks Stroke turbo's would be such a great thing to install on an IDI.

If you went out an got one of the ball bearing wastegated 2500 dollars for the turbo only Stroke turbo's, then you might be able to make some high RPM power if you can keep the valley pan and head gaskets in your engine.
But add in the cost of all the custom parts you will have to make or have made for you and that is going to be an expensive turbo/engine system.

I really like being able to get 12 PSI of boost at RPM's under 2000 instead of waiting till I hit 3000 RPM to get more boost than I can use.

the biggest problem with this kind of setup would be turbo lag right?
ideally you want the turbo down the engines throat to get rid of the lag.
least thats the claims on the ford scorpion 6.7.
i wounder how bad it would be.if newer engines are striving to get it a bit closer,mounting one down under like this must be drastic?

I'm thinking about plumbing a turbo up in the bed and use a stihl 66 to drive it with, that way I won't have to mess with the exhaust.

No leaf blower stuff, T want to use a turbo off a 500 60 series. I figgure if I crank the chainsaw before I get in I can have 25 pounds of boost before I even hit the starter. No turbo lag whatsoever.
