Early 93 IDI had the option of being turbocharged.
93 to 94 were turbocharged IDI.
94.5 to 97 were 7.3 Powerstrokes non intercooled.
The IDI motors were gray in color and used a mechanical injection pump.
I hope that helps. I would bet money thats the factory turbo IDI motor, good motors they will pull anything it just takes awhile. I had a 93 IDI turbo that was a good truck, it had dual 3" pipes and the pumped cranked up really high. It may have been close in power to a 94.5 to 95 stroker but it got 12mpg and smoked like a pulling truck, Egts would hit 1000* fast. Can you get a pic of the motor? That might be one of the 94.5 strokes.
