TURBO NEWS 2020 Vs. 2019 Power Stroke Turbos, Compared

If you were wondering what the turbo bolted to the 2020 Power Stroke looks like, KC Turbos has performed all the leg work for you. In its dissection of its brand-new F-250 guinea pig, the guys at KC Turbos found a 54mm inducer compressor wheel (vs. 61mm on the ’15-’19 units). Other findings included a smaller, 55mm exducer turbine wheel and a dual ball bearing center cartridge (vs. journal bearing). The upside of Ford’s going to a smaller turbo means quicker spool up and more low-end torque. In fact, the new electronically actuated VGT makes 35 to 40 psi of boost right off the showroom floor. However, the smaller sized turbo also likely means that, when tuned, the ’20 trucks won’t have the 540 to 550-rwhp potential the ’15-’19 trucks do, and reliability might be an issue if the charger is pushed much further beyond factory boost levels.
