    I used to own a 1993 Ford F-350, Crew Cab, 5spd w/ Non-Turbo 7.3L. I installed the Banks Sidewinder turbo kit, install a custom intercooler kit using a 2001 superduty intercooler then at one time I had a ZEX Nitrous kit on it also. with just turbo and intercooler the truck put down 255rwhp and 598rwtq. Right before I sold the truck a year ago I installed an aftermarket injector pump from this guy I found on the internet that modifies the stock pumps. He also sells Injectors for the truck also which add good amount of power too. The new injector pump and injectors fom the guy were worth 50hp combined. I loved that truck but it was time for me to have something diffrent for awhiile and engine a small car before the family comes along. Ill see if I can dig up all the info on that guy for you. I believe his company was DPI or DPP Diesel Peformance Specialists maybe. Ill see what I can dig up.

    Good luck and nice ride!!!

    looks good bud. Those are solid trucks.. and the wing on the top helps in gas mileage when towing :thumb: used to have one on our old 7.3 turbo truck.. it was a beast

    Thanks. I'd appreciate that info if you can dig it up.

    Yep . . going to be my daily driver. :boink:

    Thanks, man. I think I'm probably going to sell the wing. I doubt it'll do much good with a bumper trailer. And, my trailer is a slant top, anyway. Besides, if I sell the wing, the truck is even cheaper!! ;D

    looks like a good hauler Tad.
    you'll definately like the boost on that thing, they can take quiet a bit. they're stout motors.
    just the oil injection pressure is like 14K psi (if I remember correctly)

    not sure the differences, but my other work truck is a 99. It has the 7.3L and is chipped, 4" from the downpipe back with a bigger wastegate pushing 30#
    it put down over 700 TQ. Great for a heavy work truck that regularly hauls a trailer. I miss driving it, it's being driven by another guy since I'm office boy now.


    Yourse should be good for hauling that trailer,

    (nice spoiler)

    They should just uncrew out of the intake manifold.

    You must not be thinking of the glow plugs, but the exhaust plugs.

    lol . . I was kidding. I figured you'd be one of the few that knows it doesn't have spark plugs. :boink:

    I was not sure if you were kidding around or not, because there are 8 glow plugs for cold starts.

    Diesel is where its AT now days with gas prices the way they are. Buying my 03 Cummins was one of the best purchases I've ever made. I'm considering getting rid of my girl's exploder for a diesel vw....
