Just bought a 99 7.3
Hi guys new here I recently purchased a 1999 regular cab f250 7.3, the build date says 1/98 now I have been reading a lot about the 99-04 and there is a big difference its seems with the 99 model year had 3 different variations.
Is one better than another? I know turbo size GP relays and some exterior stickers differ but I am not sure what else.
The truck has 128k the previous owner used it as a weekend fun show truck. its got a 4'' lift with BDS suspension some alloys 33 inch tires big head banks waste gate MRBP 5 inch turbo back exhaust. The guy i bought it from told me he did glow plugs and turbo rebuild at 80k because the because he was anal , he was very upfront about everything he did with receipts, so I have no reason to think it was beat on and the physical condition its in speaks volumes.
My Mechanic has taken a look says its in great shape for the year, is there anything out side of a regular mechanics knowledge that you guys would suggest that I look into,
I also just replaced rear rotors and pads,flushed fluids and new filters but are there any lil powerstroke tips and tricks for this engine, I have heard they can run far into 500k miles if i take care of it right.
