    No turbo. Just the 7.3 IH engine. I'm thinking about throwing a Banks Sidewinder Turbo kit at it. It's supposed to add 82hp and 143 tq.

    That said . .. it's not terribly slow as it is.

    What year F-350 did you get. I used to tow my car with a 1992 F-250 Diesel. That thing was sick. I loved getting 22-25mpg out of a truck, 18-20 while towing.

    It's a 92. Here's a couple of pics. Check out the Altezzas!!!! :pimp2:

    It even has a ricer wing on the top. I'm going to sell that the the guy with the Prelude down the street.

    Awsome. You still have the mechanical fuel injection on that thing.

    I am going to get another one when I get back into racing again.

    until you start screwing around with it to see how MUCH you have to do to get 12's out of it........then 11's .........


    then you will need a new one to haul THAT one around :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh:

    The old 7.3 is a great engine. The only draw back to them is they need very regular oil changes. Otherwise you get a soot build up in the oil. It actually gets deposits in it, makes it gritty feeling in your fingers.

    When I worked for rollins Leasing we had a bunch of E-350 cube vans. They changed the oil about every 8-10k. Those engines got nasty. I changed the oil in mine about every 4-5k and never had a problem.

    Make sure you use a quality oil, Shell Rotella-T 15-40 is about the best diesel oil out there. The only other oil I would recomend for it is Mack Bulldog oil. Both are top of the line.
