I'm amazed with the amount of power and torque increase over stock. The product looks good and functions great! WORTH the money.

This turbo is AMAZING! The power and fuel economy increase alone is worth the purchase! If you have an old Ford like me (mine's a '87 F250) you will feel like you are driving a truck with more get up and go haha, it is pretty awesome I am glad I bought it!

Excellent, complete kit. No parts missing. Instructions could be a little clearer, but not bad. My truck had an ATS turbo on it, could not get the spare parts anymore(Exhaust header pipes) was very hapy to see that BANKS still has a system for this excelent engine. Banks Wastegate turbo kicks in much sooner than the ATS unit did. (ATS did not do much until 2200RPM, but did work well above this speed) the Banks unit has impressive power gain at relativly low engine speeds

Revive Your Old Diesel!
Lets face it, these trucks are not the most powerful or economical.The addition of this kit though, will make your sluggish truck turn into a turbo spinning hot rod. This kit almost doubles the HP of your old diesel and actually makes these trucks a lot more comparable to the later model trucks. Great kit at a great price. DPP top product for sure!

Good turbo
Good turbo but sucks because there's no compressor wheel upgrades

realistically how long should it take to install this kit ? what other things can I do to increase the power of my 7.3 ? is there any difference between the 1988 and the 1990 7.3 ? How many miles should I have on my rebuilt 7.3 before installing the turbo kit ? will it help power with the turbo by matching the intake ports to the intake manifold ??

1. This kit should take around 10-16 hours depending on your facility and other situations you may run into. (Broken bolts, needing to replace other parts, ETC. 2. This is honestly one of the best things to help add power to your 7.3 IDI. 3. I am not aware of any major differences between the 88 and 90 7.3 IDI. 4. I would give the engine around 5,000 miles to break in. About the length of an oil change. Make sure to use a proper oil such as Schaeffers. 5. In a perfect world, yes that would help. All depends on how much power you are looking to make. These are not typically the platform people use to build large power numbers. Your money may be better spent on other areas of the truck than that.

Does the installation of this turbo kit require any fuel pump or injector adjustments to accommodate the additional air being forced into the engine??

Yes, the instructions state is is required to adjust the fuel injection pump. You can view the instructions with the link below, you will need to scroll to the FORD TRUCK section and find the corresponding year, approximately 3/4 way down. http://bankspower.com/manuals

I don't see gaskets for the exhaust pipe fitments in the photo - I have to replace a exhaust manifold and want to know if I need anything non-standard for the turbo. Also, the Exhaust temp unit is not functioning - is there specs on the expected resistance/voltage for the sender? 1987 6.9l IDI C-6.?

Do you already have this turbo kit? If you do I would recommend calling Banks Power Directly for some of those specifics.
