Looking at buying a used PSD (1999)
I owned a 2003 PS 7.3 F250 Lariat w/6-speed manual that I loved but sold it in 2007 due to the ever increasing cost of diesel fuel and I sold my business. I regret it terribly.
So I have been searching for a low mileage 99-03 with another 7.3 and a 6-speed. I found one that looked like a good truck. Clean as a whistle. Went out on a test drive and maybe its just me but this truck just did not seem to be as peppy as my old PS was from a set of the pants feel. It did not seem to pull really hard when I stepped into like my truck did. I was confused also as i could not really hear the turbo winding up at all. I thought maybe I just did not know what to listen for, but it used to seem so obvious on my 03' 7.3L. Maybe I am just paranoid as I have never purchased a used vehicle in years and those in the past were never good for me. The muffler was cut out of this truck and a pipe replacement welded in which was not the best job I have ever seen. Everything looked really good underneath though and I did not notice any excessive oil under it anywhere.
