Whats wrong with the early 99s

I was looking at a 1999 f350 7.3 and was talking to my friend who works on diesels and he said to stay away from early 99s becAuse it's hard to get performance parts for them. Is this true? And are there any issues with them?

There isnt anything wrong with them, but to get big power out of them you have to upgrade alot of parts. Mine has injectors a turbo and other mods and it runs great with no problems.

There are several companies that sell complete conversion kits, both to a stock 99.5+ and with upgraded parts (like a 38r turbo and such), so if you can find a good deal on an E99 you could convert it. I am happy with mine in stockish form, it's been a reliable machine.

Nothing wrong with them, it just that sometimes it is confusing to get parts for them in my experience. Theres a few different front suspension parts and what not compared to the 99.5+. I got really lucky with my Early 99 because the whole engine was replaced with a 2000 model engine previously(warranty I believe)
