Bought a new truck, need to upgrade!!

Hello,

I am a mew member, new to powerstrokes as well. I live in Vernon BC Canada. I just bought a 1995 F-250 Auto 7.3L. I am wondering if you can tell me if I paid a fair price? This truck has 309K Kms, Power everything, Dana 60 front end conversion, one ton springs. It has a nice set of eagle alloys and 305/75-16 tires with good rubber. The body is decent. Only rust is starting under the rear windows of the cab at the bottom like usual around here. He just did the fuel pump, a few injectors, and a few glow plugs. The guy was a regular on the oil changes and tranny fluid changes. It has a new starter, batteries, and rear u-joints.

I paid $5000.00 cdn This a fair price?

I would like to help it breath so I am going to do a turbo back exhaust, and looking at a AFE intake. Will get some gauges before I chip it one day.

Thanks,

First of all welcome to the org

I have no idea what that translates into american dollars and miles so I can't help you there. It's different in various markets though so not sure anyone outside of canada could really help you anyways.

It works out to 193k miles, and $4079.76 USD.
