Hey guys, I gathered some info on how to replace the turbos on your 15-17’ f150 2.7 and I think it could apply to the 18-20’ 2.7 as well.
I could not find any info on this anywhere, but finally did, and I thought I’d share it here so that someone else like me can readily find it.

Here’s a video that I found extremely helpful


Here’s a part list of things you need to replace. Of course I’m not replacing with a stock turbo, but If you are wanting to, the part number is there.
Just plug each part number into Tascaparts website and you’ll find everything.

Left Turbo



1. FL3Z6K682D Turbocharger Asy
2. W520514S440 Nut- down pipe (2)
3. W707753S900 Stud- down pipe (2)
4. JT4Z9T516A Tube Assy- oil feed tube w filter (1)
5. FT4Z6N652F Gasket (1)
6. FL3Z9448B Gasket (2)
7. FT4Z6N652D Gasket (2)
8. FT4Z6N652G Gasket (1)
9. W716383S437 Stud- turbo mounting (2)
10. FT4Z6N652E Gasket (1)
11. W714870S430 Nut- turbo mounting (2)

Just wanting to update this thread with a little installation guide that may help someone.

First things first, disconnect the battery.

Then you can begin disconnecting all the intake plumbing, charge pipes, inlet tubes, etc.

Then, remove both front wheels and wheel well liners.

Next, drain the coolant

Then, go underneath the truck and remove the fabric cover under the downpipe and oil pan drain.

Disconnect the downpipe from both turbos and then you can simply push on the downpipe towards the back of the truck, (I used my legs and arms to push while I braced against the ground) you may even have to push down by the muffler. But the whole exhaust will slide back about 2.5” giving you room to remove the gasket on the turbo.

then begin unbolting the oil feed and return, coolant feed and return lines from the engine and the turbos’ core itself. Also remove the vacuum line for the wastegate actuators on both turbos

then remove all the bolts and studs holding the turbo to the cylinder head.

then pull the turbo out and put the replacement turbo in, using a new gasket.

then the rest is just the reverse process basically.

Honestly after doing the whole thing myself, it WAS easy. Worst part was draining the coolant and the most time consuming thing was jacking the truck up and removing wheels and wheel wells.

Again, I just want all you young fellas to appreciate and enjoy your vital earthsuits while they are fluid and obedient to your commands. Lol

They eventually start to rebel. I'm just saying.

I just impulse purchased a set of used turbos on eBay, less than $500 shipped for the pair.

Can't say when I'll send them to CRP, but this will be a good guide for when I do!

Heck yeah that’s what I like to hear! Now I’m starting to feel like sending my stock turbos in to be made into stage 4s lol.

Looks like stage 2, 3 and 4 are the options. Stage 1 is stock right?

Is there a cliff notes version of the differences (pros/cons) of the options?

edit: don't answer that, I found some of your older posts talking about the differences. I'll talk to my tuner as well when the time comes.

Yeah, I thought they made a stage 1 but it wasn’t worth anything really. I am really enjoying the stage 2s actually.

Yeah the stage 2s don’t spool as fast as the stage 3s because of the larger exducer, but they practically make the same power as the stage 3s. Stage 3s also have 7 blades instead of 6. Stage 4s are like a stage 2 turbo with 3mm added to the inducer size And the exhaust turbine is larger.

Stage 2 is looking like the right choice.
I'll probably wait until august to send them out. but as I've already shown.. I'm impulsive and it might happen sooner.

Yeah, you can always do what I did, use PayPal credit. As long as you pay them off within 6 months it’s interest free. I think mine were 1800$ with shipping and fees and everything.

also, make sure you make a build thread about it if you haven’t already. I want to see what power you will get. I’m at 7000’ and I’m only seeing around 430hp. Should be at least 500 for you if you’re at sea level.

How was the shipping to/from CRP? Anything more complicated than just filling out a customs form?

I'm at like 500ft above sea level. I'm Gen2 as well, so it's not an apples to apples comparison. I'll run e85 in the warm months, then back to the crummy 91. Although, I did find this the other day.

Well, the 18+ 2.7 isn’t much different except the port injection and the 10 spd transmission.

Shipping to CRP was super easy. Just the customs form. 80$ to ship.

Oh man, yeah 500’ above sea level, you’ll have 500+ hp. I’d love to see what you can make on full e85 on the stage 2s.

This info CRP sent me with my stage 4 turbos. Most interesting part to me was the tilting more than 20 degrees. I’m almost positive that I tilted it more than 20 degrees

I’ve been wanting to send my turbos in to CRP. The problem is I rather send in turbos to save several hundred dollars and I don’t have a second automobile to drive for 3-4 weeks while I wait. Maybe it’s a sign from the universe!
Well, I have a set of stage 2 turbos I’m selling. @Trav16 was wanting them though. They wouldn’t be any more expensive than shipping the ones from your truck in.

But if I were you, I’d buy a used set on eBay like I did and then send those in. What I did was purchase the “send in your turbos” option that CRP offers and so I sent in the turbos I bought from eBay. The eBay turbos were 300$ And CRP was 1750$ so it ended up being just over 2,000$ with shipping and everything.

If only your truck was an 18+.. I'm about to post a bunch of parts including my original turbos for sale.. they'd be great for someone to send it.

I did the math on my swap and I was right around $2800.. $700 was for the install, so my numbers are right there with yours!

Nice! And of course that wasn’t including the parts needed, but that’s just the turbos themselves.
