cost to rebuild 95 powerstroke??

I'm considering rebuilding the motor in my truck (325k) since the body and mechanicals are in great shape. I would be doing all the work except machine work. Has anyone done this and have a ballpark for how much it cost; pistons/rings/bearings...recondition heads, bore block etc..A complete no corners cut rebuild. thanks, Steve

It seems tired (325,000 miles)....I tow a trailer that's only 7,000 lbs (5 speed manual) and it struggles. I rebuilt the injectors and machined them into stage 1's, put a rosewood 6 position chip in, 4" exhaust from turbo to tail pipe, AFM intake, cleaned the IPR etc...everything is fuctioning. 375-400 psi compression cold. I would like to add a Banks intercooler assy...but if i'm into $5k including rebuild i may just buy the new 2011...but there is something about having a 1995 that looks like new and runs better. I ran it w/no trailer and basically empty up an 18% grade up to 2500 foot altitude, 2 mile long hill and had to keep it wound out (2700 rpm) in 4th gear @ 40-45 mph to get up the hill (3.55:1 gears)...and in my opinion a diesel w/mods like that should fly up that hill....If I had my trailer in tow I may not have made it up.

if your motor still has 375-400psi your fine. i have a 96 that is at 310psi still runs great after it warms up. but it is in the proccess of being pulled out now for a rebuild.
check out your turbo, with that compression and new injectors with a chip it should run great. the turbo could just be a little worn out. in that case id recommend the d66 from BDP

as for prices on a rebuild your looking at about
1150= rebuild kit
625= stock turbo... 1125= d66 turbo
mechine work=400-800(depending if it just needs a bore job or if the deck needs resurfaced)
500-800= for short block assembly(unless you can put the motor back together yourself)

then of course you got oil, antifreeze, new water and steering pump, if you choose to put new on,

im planning on spending about 4000 on my motor thats with the d66 turbo

96 F-250 ext. cab long box 4x4
Intake, auto meter(oil psi, tranny,boost, EGT) IDM mod, .030 over rebuilt motor, comp 910's, BDP d66 turbo, BDP stage one injectors, BDP fuel system, t500, BDP custom tuned 6pos, coolingmist water/meth, 3in downpipe 4in duals, dana 60 swap, 203* t-stat
traction bars, 6.0 intercooler
furture plans,
BTS, 300/200 sticks, studs, pushrods, t4 mount, NEW PAINT

GOAL= 600+ hp
