Is there anything MORE desirable about the early-99 PSD versus the later models?

Just curious. I like that the E4OD transmissions have a drain plug in the torque converter for a more complete fluid change. I've heard about the forged connecting rods, but don't really know if that is true or if that truly is an advantage. I know there are lots of threads praising the the later model years (late-99 through 2003), but is there anything about the e-99's that makes them in any way more desirable?

E99's are less desirable. The best 7.3's are late 99-01.

e99 has the 4r100 not e4od
E99 has smaller turbo
Smaller injectors
Smaller intake
Things cost WAY more ( look up e99 up pipes or wheel bearings)

Only benefit is they have forged rods.

They aren't anymore problematic than other years, their interior wiring is more difficult to deal with but as far as the drivetrain goes they are the same as a 99-01 except they probably have powdered metal connecting rods

Good to know .... I figured being the last run of the 7.3's was the way to go

Yeah the only thing with PMR's is they can't handle as much as the forged rods can, but unless you are looking to pass 450HP youll never have to worry about it

So no 800HP+ pulls on the Dyno, is what your saying ??

They are still getting good money for these ... at least here in CA.

I found a own owner, Lariot , 97k miles for $22

I found a 2 owner, with 114k, SB for $17

And my favorite was another '02 CC, LB, Lariot with 125k for $15 ..... But this one has a 'branded' title (lemon) .

Dealer buy back at 25k miles for some injector BS.

After dealer repaired it, the 2nd owner put another 100k with no issues

Thoughts ?

Well even if you were to do an "800 horse dyno pull", even forged rods would exit the block. Either of those trucks you posted sounds good, although I would want one with the least amount of miles.

I answered your question in the second half of my response. Go look at the two trucks and whichever one you like more and can afford, buy that one.
