buying another powerstroke

Im finally going to get back into a ford again. Looking at a 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 . It has a built trans, stage 2 single shot injectors, garrett super 100 turbo , tsp 6 chip but stock exhaust , would this have caused any problems also what recommended exhaust do y'all have to make the 7.3 sound the best

whose "stage 2's" injectors? maybe I just don't know all the turbo's out there but what is a garrett super 100 turbo. whose tunes are on the chip? a lot of people have 4 inch turbo back exhaust some have 5 inch after a 4 inch dp. it's mainly a sound difference and more of a preference over anything. what kind of intake does it have and does he have gauges in the truck?

Stock exhaust goes in the trash. MBRP straight exhaust no muffler. He needs to tell u what tunes are at what settings so you're not in the dark.

The super 100 housing is the stock turbo with a larger 1.0 exhaust housing. I think he might be feeding you a line....

I would definately ask what size stage 2's

^^ what they all said. Ask for receipts specially for the "built" trans since the only way to prove it is to open it up otherwise. At the very least he should know what size the "stage 2s" are. As far as the turbo it sounds like he doesn't know what he was talking about so I would be very leery.

My guess is stock turbo, maybe with a wicked wheel, stock injectors, and canned tunes.

with the stock exhaust the egt's might have got pretty high with those injectors. does the truck even have a pyro?

if it has a pyro, drive it and see how quick it gets into the danger zone. if it has no pyro, i would probably walk away unless the truck is super duper cheap. the pistons and valves might be toast. did you check for blowby while it idles warm?

where the pyro probe is mounted makes a difference too. i've heard of people installing them after turbo and saying that their egt's are great because they're only getting up to 11 or 1200 max.

ya because its 200 degrees warmer in the manifold compared to the downpipe. so you get an in-accurate reading lol

can you imagine these morons cruising at 1400 degrees and wondering why their truck ate a valve haha

Well I got it got high mileage but paid 7800. The injectors are 80 percent nozzle. Runs great no problem with blowing out the fill nozzle. Hopefully ain't been damaged has no gauges. But first thing is gauges and exhaust
