Powerstroke history

Is there a website or thread that list the changes done to the 7.3 PS by year? I'm looking at buying a truck and would like to know a little more about them before I buy.

welcome to the forum.

I don't of any website out there that may have what you are looking for, but chances are the folks here can answer just about any question you have about the PSD's

I've been reading non stop all I can to learn. I'm just curious as to when the major changes, such as HPOP improvements, when the intercooler was introduced, bigger injectors introduced, ect...... I want to buy as new as my buget allows, but I would also like to not miss out on any improvements by going back one to many years. All I am really interested in is the 7.3. Thanks a lot.
