what else are these 7.3's in ??

Hey, I know a local farmer who said his boy works for UPS (Brown) & in their vans they got the 7.3's in them & he works on their engines for a living. Any one else out there know what Navistar put these into/sold to others???
Might be helpful if you love these engines...thanks.

Navistar calls them T444E's and besides UPS, you hear them a lot in school buses around here and most of the ambulances (which are generally on Ford Chassis). I used to know more trucks that used them but I guess I'm getting old. I can't remember...

The best thing about it is that you can buy most of the parts to this motor straight through Navistar, saving a ton of money over the asinine prices at a Ford stealership.

All of internationals medium duty trucks have the option of the powerstroke (t444E) There are some minor differences but essentially the same motor

I wonder what kind of electronic differences there would be. The 444's are basically the same, just some of the changes don't coincide with when Fords changed. I think the 444's used the early '99 turbo set-up longer. Not sure on the injectors.

i bumped into an ambulance driver a couple years back in the San Francisco are. he said that he and his hospital were ditching all the chevy ones and switching to Ford. he had a lot of 7.3's in his line up. he and his crew would drive the piiss out of them and still get 300k out those engines.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
