what would you do?

Swapping a 7.3 into a gas truck.... Should i do the SD engine or a OBS engine?

I don't like the split shots and i would rather have the OBS turbo i tihnk!

I will not be building it into a high horsepower machine...

1. stage 1's or 2's
2. intake
4. custom tunes
5. what else?

I know a OBS has no IC and it has the smaller HPOP but i can add those if need be. What would you do? Convince me one way or another

1996 f350- 615hp/1258tq uncorrected

2008 KR f350- leveled and tuned 569hp/1158tq

Cascade Coal Rollers!

IMO, i would go first gen. aside from what you mentioned, just replace the me*****al fuel pump with an electric. and i say this becuase i would think a first gen would be cheaper than 2nd. i like the sound as well.

in all they arent that different as you already know. split shots and hpop are the only major things i am aware of.
