Travco/Dodge add a turbo..

Unread postby frank-id on Mon Jan 28, 2013 9:35 pm

Doing a bit of research to put a turbo on my big Dodge engine. The very common Ford/Int. 7.3l engine is 444 cu in. Turbos are available. I have a Ford 7.3l with a turbo and the truck runs good. I am also gonna add some alcohol/water injection and experiment with adding LPG. Frank

Cool, A fellow diesel enthusiast. 7.3 is a good engine. I assume it's an IDI right ?
I want to do a Cummins with an Allison but gotta find the right combo.

Dodge put Turbos on 440's in the late 70's. I found one a year back in a Foretraveler... which owned/bought out Travco.

Please post any/more info. I have been trying to make decisions about adding the turbo. Thanks, Frank

and on these, turbo lag wouldn't really be a concern... so remote mount wouldn't be so problematic... if you wanted to go that way. Even small amounts of boost could help a fair amount, without the need of dropping compression.
