Turbo exchange

Alright so I'm wondering if I can add a turbo with a wastegate to my truck, I'm currently just running my stock turbo which is non wastegated. Will adding this affect my engine temp? Will I need a better intake?
Or would it just be better to keep a non wastegated turbo on it?

All the wastegate does is limit top end boost. I think at one time you could get a wastegate housing, but I guess I don't see the point. What do you hope it will do or help with?

Well, to be honest.. newer trucks have them so i thought it would be an upgrade. Doesnt it help build boost faster? right now i feel like i have no boost so i was looking into the turbo, going to pull it off and either rebuild or replace it here soon.

Before you do that check the Up-pipes for soot deposits at the connections and tighten all Intake clamps...It can also be the o-ring between the Turbo Outlet and the Wye intake...Do you have a guage ?

Newer trucks have them because they have more fuel than the turbo can take. A variable vane turbo will spool faster, but all a wastegate does is dump exhaust at a pre set boost level, effectively limiting boost no matter how much more fuel you add. A 1.0 or .84 intake housing will spool faster. I'll second the gauge. Cheap and easy to install. Should see 17 or so lbs max.

The "Up Pipes" are on the backside of the turbo by the firewall correct? In this instance i would be looking for a boost leak right?
Gauges, i dont have any yet... i was contemplating just boost or if i should go all out and get a set..

Yes they are...look for soot stains at the connections....Not a boost leak but an exhaust leak..boost leaks are on the Intake side....( on Top of the engine)
