    sorry it took me a while to respond. So what am I loosing buy not having a wastegate? Im a noobie at turbos. Does it really make a differnce? I do have a 6.9 but I am doing a zf5 swap now so what would I need to do about the pipes?

    , Thanks

    Yep I have the "old" version of the Banks for the 6.9. But it will work just fine for a 7.3 as long as it is either 4sp or E40D, the Banks up pipes will not fit around a ZF5. This turbo is the non-wastegated version with the huge square intake. As far as i remember it has every piece but im sure something somewhere is missing. The comp housing has a little bit of scuffing inside, but the comp wheel is no where near loose enough to touch the housing, which leads me to believe it has been rebuilt. In a perfect world id like $750 +shipping... but, the thing is worthless to me sitting in a box so id take $500.
