Everybody is telling you to pull the hair dryer , but i will not and as long as it is NOT tweaked to much on the pump it will be fine as the turbo will give ya that little extra plus lugging power that they lack . A close friend has a 966 as his BIG tractor and a OLD 806 that is turboed and has been since 1968 and the 806 is set at 120 . The 966 had to get a pump rebuild and it was set stock at stock settings it WOULD NOT run the two row chopper and pull a loaded silage wagon up the hills in low third with the T/A pulled back . The 806 would eat the 966 for lunch . End up giving the 966 a couple turns on the screw so we could use it to chop with . My non turbo 806 will out pull a STOCk 966 Now as to WHY some bozo would remove the fuel tank i have no idea unless they were usen it as a PULLING tractor and cut the tank down to save weight and when there idea of being grand national champ with a 966 with a hair dryer did not work out the put it back to a somewhat stock FARM tractor and dumped it . But i have seen many 966's with a turbo and as long as you do not get nutty with fuel they do help.And beside unless you check part #'s how do you know what was done to it and what might have been changed before you got it.
