Getting my first 7.3L..... Help me fix it up please
Okay, to start off I am a dodge guy, hence the user name, and I dont know **** about fords engines (well the diesels). I was shopping for a F350 for a long time, with a 460, and looks like I am picking up my neighbors 1995 F250 special LB ext cab with 200k on it for $3k. Seemed decent to me on price.
So.... I dont know if or when the tranny was ever rebuilt. I plan on making it as big as I cna and still haul my horses (gooseneck)... which I figure is 6" lift on 37's. Might be lower have to play with it.
So what can I do to ive this the gidde up and go of a 460? I mean I like that its a diesel, and I have known the 7.3L to be the best of all fords, but its a slug. I am going to straight pip it and intake. I would like at least enough power to match the pick up of a gasser 460.... can this be done?
Help.... I know its mechanical injection so not sure if tuners do any good or not?
