Newbie!!.. Just bought my first diesel.. Few questions

I just bought a 2000 F250 6 speed 2wd with 77k on it... But it has a International engine in it. I have done a little research and I dont think there that different then the normal powerstrokes put in the F250s.. I bought this truck for $7k to pull my boat.. It gets 20MPG on the highway which was pretty impressive.. Is there a difference in the International engines??

Thanks Guys... You'll be seeing a lot of me on here, once I start messing with this thing..

You're in luck. We all have International engines in our trucks.

Mine has the t44e engine.. thats the normal stock motor found in all the powerstrokes?

I want to do a few things to it and have spent a lot of time reading on this site.. I just want to improve my MPG and not mess with the reliability.. I drive 6+ hours a few times a month to go fishing and my boat at most weighs 3000# loaded up, so this truck as no problem pulling my boat as it sits stock. I was looking at doing a full stainless steel exhaust (4" seems to be the most common?), cold air intake, and a tuner... Any suggestions on these parts.. If thats all I do, it shouldn't mess with my reliability and should improve my MPG and performance. I was also looking into lifting the front end up to level off the the truck,.. is there a complete kit I can buy to do this? Being 2wd the front end sits low and looks lame haha...

Thanks everyone for your suggestions..

What he meant is that all 7.3L's were manufactured by International. So yes, we all have International engines.

We can get you setup with all the parts you are looking for if you are interested. Check out our website at Diesel tuning products for Ford PowerStroke

Intake, exhaust, and a tune will really wake your truck up. I would also recommend getting some type of gauges as well once you add a tuner. That way you can keep an eye on the important things.

Let me know if you have any questions.
