New to the Stroker, Back to the Basics!


I just recently bought a 94 7.3 IDI non turbo, Figured I'd check out this forum and see what you guys have to offer! I'll tune this one as much as I can, but it seems parts for the non turbo are pretty hard to come by...

Any short ideas on upgrading the performance of the block, I'd appreciate! Truck has 240k on it, someone told me a WHILE back, the IDI diesel block is pretty well indestructable (I HOPE that's the case!!) And if this thing can push more smoke than my 24v Cummins did, I'll be in GREAT shape!

I'll post some pix of it later on, It's the Auto trans (which I'm not horridly thrilled about), Extended cab, Long box 4x4...Should suffice for pulling my gooseneck pretty easily!

LMK if ya'll have any ideas on performance stuff for the Truck - I'd LOVE to see what's available and go from there!

get a turbo, and check the non powerstroke forum for the 80's to early 94 idi section, good luck, and rolling coal is a bad burn, just means your waisting fuel

Getting smoke out of those trucks is easy as pie, just bump the fuel pump a couple turns. Getting power from all that smoke is harder (and technically shouldn't smoke for optimal power). Look into a turbo system for it. I believe the 1994's came from the factory with an ATS unit. Not sure how hard one of these systems is to come by in the aftermarket. You'll find more info on the IDI over in the 80-94 section. If I remember correctly, DPS or one of the other builders had an IDI pushing 450hp a while back.
