Need some help
I am in need of gettin a new truck and I know Ford is the only way to go, but was wanting to get a diesel. I don't know much about them and was hoping yall could share some knowledge. But, I do know that the 7.3L is the way to go also.
I like the look of the 9th generation (1992-96) better than the 10th (1997-2004) but in some research I found that
"In 1999, an air to air intercooler was added. The intercooler cooled the charged air from the turbo making it denser. The cooler, denser air would increase the horsepower potential of the engine, while also reducing exhaust gas temperatures (EGTs). The turbine housing was changed to a .84 A/R housing and a wastegate was added. The "single shot" HEUI injectors were upgraded to "split shot" injectors. With larger injectors, the HPOP was advanced to 17º to increase fuel pressures."
Did the change after 1999 make a bgi differance in the engine? Also ant other tips would be greatly appreciated.
