Please tell me. How far will it go???
I'm curious how far the "legendary" "bulletproof" 7.3 will go before dieing.
To be more specific I'm wondering about a mostly stock 2000, with stock turbo, stock injectors etc. Just DIY Cold Air Intake, 4" Turboback w/ muffler and no cat, and gauges. Auto Tranny. 2WD Dually. Definately used for towing (probably heavy towing but not for sure) and has had too much unplugged cold starting for my likeing in the recent months. As far as I know it's had good maitenence.
The CPS recall has been fixed.
A new S&B will be put on next week.
It is never shut off before idleing/cooling to at least 300degrees on the EGT gauge.
What do you think? How far should it go if maitenence is kept up?
It has just over 182k on it right now.
