Why no VV turbo for the 7.3??

How come no aftermarket VV turbo's exist for the 7.3's?

I would think there would be a demand for them that the turbo manufactors would have designed and built them. What gives?:shrug:

'00 cc f 350 a few mods, and a bts tranny.

ATS may have their Aurora MST out soon. It's is similar to a VVT except it controls the size of the nozzle instead.

The set up. They do work very well if set up right. However some like the one on the 6.0Ls are electronicly controlled so they are hard to make a controller for. There are some that are boost controlled that you could adapt but it would be a lot of work to get set up right and would be fairly costly. With all the complaining I hear about the cost of the BB turbo I doubt people would be happy at all the the higher cost of a VG turbo.

I'm hoping that the MST proves to be more reliable than the stock VGT. Sticking unison rings and control solenoids just piss me off!
