Motor weakness after removing aftermarket injectors and chip?

Hey guys, looking at buying a 99 f350 for my first truck. The guy says the only problem is he had bigger injectors and a chip, removed both and then the truck was much weaker than it should be stock. He has no idea why and neither do I. I'll buy it if its a problem that can easily be fixed. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks,

Mike

Weaker as in not as much power, sure. Weaker as in less structural integrity, hardly.

If you want it to "fix" it and be "stronger" again, just buy some bigger injectors and a chip. Figure around a couple thousand dollars for the right combo.

Do you think that after taking both out and putting back stock injectors it should be a lot less powerful than how it should be stock?

He may have just gotten used to the large power increase over stock with the sticks and chip, and forgot how much of a pig the 7.3's are stock
