Find a power stroke, I dont like idis everyone ive had to work on burns a ton of oil and leaks like a siv. Thats my opinion. Those engines have high compression and when you add a turbo to it that adds way more stress to everything

They work good but if you really want a truck to work hard and last long just find a late 94-97 psd, factory turbo, butt load of power, relatively easy to work on and operate
