Mounted this turbo with the non EBV pedistal, high flow outlet, and a wicked wheel. Instantly noticable difference in spool up and mid-range. Will make a big improvement for you. Added the boost fooler to keep the ecm from defueling and now i need to get the air heater deleat.

Tell a big difference between this and the factory turbo. this one lets you know that it is making horsepower and makes the 7.3 more friendly when pulling a trailer.
