Ol Blue is my 2002 F-250 7.3L Powerstroke 4x4 with 238,000 miles on the clock.
Early last year around April I installed a set of stage 1 single shot injectors. In May one of those brand new injectors failed and destroyed the number 5 cylinder. Which made me replace the engine. The company stood behind there product, they replaced all the injectors with new ones. Plus they gave me a settlement.
I dealt with a local vendor. He helped me out a lot as well did the company that I got the injectors from.
So to date, I have installed a 7.3L powerstroke from a 98 E-350 van. I swapped out the turbo, the intake plenums, the up pipes, oil cooler, and engine mounts. Prior to install of the engine, I installed a Stealth Stage 1 HPOP. An Air Dogg 2 fuel pump system, S&B Intake, as well as those new stage 1 single shot injectors, new 4 inch turbo back exhaust.
Well I also ended up having to replace the turbo which I think was damaged by the injector failing because the shaft was broken. I got a stock used one from a local guy. He only put a few miles on it before going bigger.
Well I will say that I am now back on the road with Ol Blue. Today I just replaced the back bumper with a stainless steel drop bumper.
I must say over all I am very happy with the parts I have and how my truck runs.
I will not post the name of the local vendor because I do not think he is a sponsor on this site. I also will not post where the injectors came from due to the aggreement I made with them. If they wish to post up who they are then that is there choice.
But they were very fair and supportive during this whole thing.
