1992 7.3 IDI 4x4 $1000 good deal?

I found a 7.3 IDI the guy wants $1000 for he was asking $1500 but he came down. He says it runs thinks it needs an o-ring in one injector and some minor little things like locking hubs and radio. I have always owned the PSD 7.3 and know little about these IDI's but this seems like a good deal with some paint and a little wrenching should be a good truck. Whats this cavitation? I tried searching it to research but nothing informational. How can I tell if this truck has it?

Ya good buy. Not gonna be a powerhouse like the PSD, they just never were. But reliable, and decent pullers if you don't mind taking it slow.

I am getting the truck cause I just got rid of my F350 and bought a jetta (much better on mpg and I am commuting a great distance) However, I need a truck to load the dogs up and go hunting, picking up lumber and things of that nature so I think I can get this truck put some money in a paint and in the engine and tires wheels get it looking half way decent and have a nice little truck. You mentioned being a little slow. Surely it would help to put on a turbo. How do these older trucks react to a turbo kit? If anyone knows.

Like he said, the difference is unbelievable. Do that, hypermax or ATS, or even a used banks work fine. Do an exhaust, (straight pipe is preferred, but louder and also not emissions friendly always) or get a good open muffler. Make yourself a good homemade intake, turn up that IP and put a pyro in the cab, good to go!

For a 1000 bucks I'd buy and use It for daily driver or a work truck. These are great trucks and tough as nails.
