Unhappy '99 neither fish nor fowl ?

Hi

I have what until today I thought was a L99 F-250. But today while wiring in a glow plug led indicator, I saw the baro sensor near the steering column.

My truck has the badges on the doors, the cruise light indicates operation(i was told the e99s sis not) and the old injectors I pulled recently were ADs and not ABs. I replaced with reman ADs.

While a previous owner may have had the injectors swapped yrs ago, the baro sensor despite the badges to the contrary indicates the early build.

I am very disappointed with this discovery. What does this mean as far as power, mods and just plain fun of ownership?

they are very close in comparison power wise.

also, you have newer injectors which was one of the smaller things on the e99's

e99 was 120cc, late 99 140cc.

look at your turbo. if it has 4 bolts on the compressor housing its e99, if it has 5 its late 99.
also look at the intake manifold, if the AIH is there or theirs a plug were it should be you have a l99 intake manifold.
IF theres no AIH then you have a e99 manifold.

my truck has a build date of 1/99, which means it has the bigger injectors and other stuff, but the e99 front suspension.

hi yes. it has the aih, badges on doors but the remote baro sensor and 4 bolt turbo. i am not sure what it was sent out the factory door as far as injectors are concerned but it is listed as a 04/99 build.

What are you talking about with a remote baro sensor?

If you have an intake air heater then you are a late 99... There is no what if's or ands about it. Intake air Heater means L99.

Nothing you have explained suggests a special truck or a E99...

hi baro sensors were incorporated into the L99 and up pcms. the e99 and obs 7.3s were remote and located near the sterring column inside the cab. i saw it yesterday when running a circuit for the glow plug led i was adding. the e99s also used a 4 bolt housing turbo whereas the l99s had the 5 bolt housing. these are significant as they cross both bridges of what are supposedly are rules for being either a e99 or l99.

Let me be clear...

IF YOU HAVE AN INTAKE AIR HEATER THEN YOU ARE A LATE 99...

The Y pipe will not fit an E99 turbo. Your more then likely looking at the exhaust housing having 4 bolts which they all do.

Your build date is also WELL within the late 99 build times.

Take a picture of your intake air heater, and your turbo housing.
