Photo 2/3 | BD Turbine Diverter Valve | If you’re on a budget and can’t afford compound turbos,
BD’s Turbine Diverter Valve is worth looking into. By
routing exhaust gases through one volute in a divided
turbine housing, it effectively cuts the turbo’s A/R in
half, creating drive pressure (and low-rpm driveability).
Then, at mid boost (when correctly set up), the valve
begins to open, which slowly allows exhaust to flow
through both volutes and ultimately opens completely
at high rpm (for great top-end performance).
Photo 3/3 | Ford Super Duty On A Dyno | If you ask us, there is a fine line when it comes to modifying a 7.3L Power Stroke. You either go all out and spend the money it takes to reach your horsepower goal (built transmission,
turbo, injectors, and such), or you stay close to stock and add a chip, exhaust, and a shift kit in the factory transmission. There is not a lot of middle ground to be had here
without sacrificing the driveability of the truck.
