Ford Turbo Diesel? What is it?

No Im not an idiot. I understand that pre 94 has no turbo. I know that in 94 they introduced the turbo on manuals and later in the year I believe even autos. Post 94 the Powerstroke was introduced with the Turbos. But recently I have been seeing a lot of "Turbo Diesels." This truck in the link Im going to post is one of them. Can anyone help me with it? I know the 94's were IDI so is this a pre PS with a turbo and IDI instead of DI?

1994 Ford F-250 Turbo Diesel

Also what are some of the pros/cons of the "Turbo DIesel"

The 'Powerstroke' name has been applied to a few different turbocharged diesel engines. The first was the 7.3L (DT444e) - introduced late in 1993 when the 7.3 IDI (non-turbo) engine block was updated and given a turbocharger. It was sourced from Navistar/International.

In 2003, the 7.3L Powerstroke engine was replaced by the 6.0L (DT365) - and that soldiered on up through 2007. It was replaced by the 6.4L turbodiesel, also sourced from Navistar.

Beginning with the 2011 model year, Ford is now building their diesel engines "in house" because of too many warranty issues with Navistar. Their new 6.7L "Scorpion" diesel engine is a beast of a powerplant, and should prove better, quieter and more powerful than any other Powerstroke. Let's hope they are as reliable, too!

yup,and if you look at a late 94 and 95 models,the turbos are bigger(i think) there is no pedistal.it looks like a 6.9 with a turbo stuck in the valley,there is the intake hole just like on the 6.9 just with a turbo instead of a filter.i think the hpop is diff to but cant be sure,i only got to glance at one,if i had it my way it would be tore down for further anylisis....just to see what makes her tick...there is no tandem lifter pump in the valley like the 95 models,interesting

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.
