High torque starters-who has them

Who has a high torque starter like the NAPA 2446770? Already this morning i had a real bad drain on the batteries trying to start 50*. Batteries test fine but positive cable has green in the cable so iam ordering that and was looking into starters. I saw this high torque style which works freat in my other cars. But just seeing what others have done. Thanks.

I've tried the aftermarket starters..IMO just get a 2003 7.3 reman starter from your local auto parts store.. Works great.

^^^ I agree. Get the starter you have listed and be done with it. Much better starts.

Honestly if you can wait a few days i recommend getting this one from rockauto More Information for TYC 106669 its only 70 bucks plus shipping. I cant find a way to link to the part listing so just go under 2003 f350 7.3 its the first one. Its 100% brand new inside and out and quality was great. So far its been great and ill see this winter how it handles the cold.

Denso makes a good high torque gear reduction unit. Just make sure you get a genuine one not a Chinese copy.

I know you already decided to get one but I'm just going to agree with everyone else here, you won't regret it. I put one on my 97 when the OE starter went out and it cranks so much faster and starts easier. Best money I've spent on a starter by far.

That's better than a $500 a month truck payment.
