need some advice

My stepdad just bought a 94 f-250 powerstroke today and were already lookin for parts to make it tow his camper alot better. Basicly im looking for a good clutch that is going to be able to hold minor mods(chip, intake, exhaust, and a quickspool housing) and hold up to a 27 foot camper on long trips thru the mountains. any advice will be helpful. also are the 94s considered powerstrokes and will obs programmers work on it? Thanks in advance

early 94's are not powerstrokes, there are 94.5's that are powerstrokes. look to see what date the truck was made. hope this helps

From what I recall there were 3 engine choices in 94. IDI NA, IDI Turbo and the PSD.

I am not a fan of the 1.0 exhaust housing. I had one but once I got a better chip it was not needed and a waste of money. Unless he is doing an Intercooler which I would highly recommend towing in Mountains.

Like above, the first thing to do is identify the motor. Being a 5 speed its possible its a PSD (94 powerstroke were only available with 5 speeds) Seeing as you have a 99 I would assume you can visually identify the powerstroke motor...Main different right away is that the AC compressor and Alternator locations are switch between your motor and his motor.

I looked at the build date and it was built 06 of 94. i guess since the powerstrokes were in the 94.5s. then his must be one of the first. it does have a high pressure oil bump and resivoir. we are sitll looking for a good clutch for it were thinkin of puttin a south bend 350 horse clutch in it from Beans Diesel. i hope thats enough.
