Garrett Turbochargers are OEM equipment on many cars and trucks. The also have an aftermarket diesel performance turbo line marketed as POWERMAX Performance Diesel. At Diesel Power Products we carry a variety of Garrett stock turbo parts as well as a few of their more popular performance models. The GTP38R ball bearing turbo that Garrett produces specifically for the 99-03 7.3L Ford Powerstrokes is by far the most popular turbo we sell. It features a 4" intake along with a custom silicone adapter hose, a ported shroud intake housing which helps control surging, a 1.0 A/R exhaust housing to help keep EGT's down, a large 88mm compressor wheel to manage all that airflow and, of course, a ball bearing cartridge. The ball bearing aspect is what really sets it apart. No journal bearing turbo can touch it when it comes to spool-up or reliability. The GTP38R functions best in Powerstrokes making up to around 475HP. You can stretch it a little further by substituting a 1.15 A/R exhaust housing for the 1.0. The 1.15 is non-wastegated and requires a machined adapter, which we also carry. You can even order the turbo in this configuration if you prefer.
If you prefer to stay with the stock turbo we carry a full line of Garrett stock replacements for the Ford Powerstrokes. We can also make a variety of modifications to the stock turbo to make it suit you needs. These mods include: ATS ported shroud, wastegated or non-wastegated 1.0 A/R or 1.15 A/R exhaust housings, wicked wheel, upgraded BD Power wastegates to control creep, non EBV pedestals and more. Give us a call or send us an email, we'll be happy to help you figure out which turbo combination is right for your application.
