    Raptor turbos vs stock turbos

    I have a 2017 3.5 Ecoboost and was thinking about getting raptor turbos to replace my stock turbos. Will I notice much gain? I am also planning on putting full-race down pipes and an intercooler in it, along with a tune. I am wondering if the turbo swap will make that much of a difference?

    Why not just do those mods with your stock turbos and make great power at a low cost?

    That is why I was wondering if they would make that big of a difference. I can get the turbos for about $420 each.

    Yup, I would only do them if you had the extra money too, lots to be gained from other mods first.

    Is it more the cold and hot pipes that make the difference or the intercooler it self? Or is it both combined?

    The core itself. I posted in another thread a side by side comparison of my Full Race front mount vs my brothers factory core, massive difference in cooling.

    I dont think the raptor turbos would buy you a lot. These motors a making a lot of power with just a tune and I havent really seen any raptor dynos that are much higher, so if you are gunna spend the time and money to swap the turbos then there are likely better options.
