IDI T or PSD which one to pick!!
I just got a 88 7.3 IDI with a blown engine(only cost me 1500 and the rest of the truck is great). Im looking to to replace the engine with eather another 7.3 IDI T or a PSD. I know the IDI is cheaper to work on and easyer, but the PSD will put out more HP and TQ from what Ive heard. Jut wondering if a 7.3 IDI T with the fuel pump turned up, new down pipe, and pyrogauge compete with the PSD. I have driven a few PSD's and they all had great power but I have never driven a IDI so I cant compare, just looking for the most bang for my buck. I can get a used PSD and doner truck from a friend for cheap, but I also know a guy at work who has an IDI motor and tranny for sale that has some upgrades. So what do you all thinkg 7.3IDI T or 7.3PSD.
P.S. It will be an off roading, towing rig, so it will be driven on the highway a lot so mileage is important also.
