that will not work, completely different systems. If it actually worked like that why doesn't every body just take used turbos off of diesels?

This guy has no clue what he's talking about.


Op, it's a direct bolt in. You just need to upgrade your intake and exhaust gaskets. May need a bigger alternatorand battery too since the 6.0 turbos run on electricity.

just because he's a "master tech" doesn't mean he knows how to custom fab a powerstroke turbo to a damn 2.3L. Do your research cause clearly you haven't

let's also just say you didn't, do you even realize how much boost a stock 6.0 turbo makes? I don't even think it's possible to make that little engine withstand it even if every thing was forged and at that you'd be in the build so deep you could have just bought a powerstroke
