New 7.3 IDI

Haha Yeah right...... Anyway I just picked up this 91 F-250 7.3 IDI in Michigan and I thought I'd post it up and see what ya'll thought.








Its a litle rough (only a little ) Its got a few pros tho. Its got a banks sidewinder turbo, aluminum wheels, 4x4, stright axle swaped in, and it runs (kinda)

Got a few mods planned in the not so distant future
1) Stack delete mod.

2) Straighten the body pannels mad

3) Make it move on its own power mod!

Alright I got pics of all the extras it came with!!!!

Ok I wouldn't consider the grille an extra but...



Nice K40 wip



Autometer 2000* EGT gauge, sunpro boost gauge, and a pillar pod, not for this truck



Spare tailgate and the other alluminum wheel. Just needs a new valve stem.



CB inside and a sunpro oil press. gauge.



Got 'er running



This is when I first got it runnin. After it ran for 30 seconds it cleared up and barely smokes at all.

Alright, Quick question. The truck has a c6 auto. Can you swap out the c6 with a manual and not need adapters for the engine or transfercase, and then would I have to change the lengths of the driveshafts? I'm guessing a ZF is gonna be expesive so what 4-speed will fit in?
