Got another 7.3...

Like the title says, I've officilly added another T444E (this one's International spec) to the family. Only this one isn't in a pickup, it's in an '01 Grumann Olsen box van. I'm pretty surprised at it, it almost seems to have better midrange than my pickup. I don't have any photos but if you see a FedEx ground truck running around it's probably the same thing.

I've got an upper intake, throttle body, speed density computer, 14 pound injectors. They're all for a standard output 5.0 though, I changed them out in favor of HO Mustang stuff.

The best thing if you want a cheap upgrade for a 5.0 is to get some gt-40P heads off an explorer motor and also get the upper and lower intake. It is a cheap way to make some good power. You can pickup a used 5.0 explorer motor for around 500 and get the parts off of it. Make sure the heads are gt-40p and not gt-40 though. Both are good but the P's seem to run a little better. Also they will up your compression slightly. Just some advice if you are looking for a cheap upgrade to a 5.0

trust me dude you are preaching to the choir here, i would love to find a '97 explorer here and if i could i would have canabalized it already. the problem is there are no vehicles older then about 5 years in the lots here and SC state law for insurance makes it hard to even wander the lots, you can only ask what they have.

If you want them they're yours but like I said, they're all SO stuff, so the intake runners are a little smaller, they're only 14 pound injectors, and the throttle body is only 50mm.

Another option is a truck intake from a F-150. That will aqlmost be another good power adder. If you can't find any explorer parts but you can find some mustang ones then try to find the E7TE cast heads. They are the best.
