Looking for Massive Instantaneous Torque from your 1999-2003 Ford F250,F350,F450,F550 7.3L Powerstroke trucks & Excursions? The Banks Quick-Turbo Housing, Compressor Wheel Kit & Big Head Wastegate does just that. Developed to maximize turbo-diesel efficiency, the Quick-Turbo provides massive, instantaneous torque. The included BigHead Wastegate actuator, a Banks exclusive, prevents wastegate “blow open” at higher pressures altogether delivering quick, controlled turbo boost.
Developed in conjunction with turbocharger and engine companies, Quick-Turbo is Banks’ answer for eliminating sluggishness “out of the hole” and producing strong acceleration. The Quick-Turbo produces massive torque right from idle, and achieves a higher peak faster while maintaining more boost through the powerband — and doesn’t over-boost.
Banks’ assembled engineering team then corrected boost-level limits in the 1999.5-2003 7.3L PowerStroke engines with a high-boost compressor wheel, built for higher boost levels without compromising turbo performance. Banks’ exclusive BigHead Wastegate, prevents “wastegate blow-open” by keeping the valve seated at higher pressures, increasing mid-range torque and top-end power.
The Quick-Turbo turbine housing is the key element in eliminating sluggish throttle response commonly associated with diesel-engine performance. The Banks Quick-Turbo turbine housing (above) appears only slightly larger than the stock housing, but provides better exhaust flow.
