Unhappy Howdy

Greetings Fellow Ford Fanatics!!

I'm Dan - hail from east TX but currently on a project in southwestern Nebraska - and I don't know if I'm in the right place or not. I recently purchased a '96 F-350 type I ambulance. Has a 7.3 turbo, but I don't know how to tell if it's a powerstroke or not. So I thought I'd stop by, have a cup o' coffee & see what I can find here. . . . . .

any hints?

Howdy and

If it is 96 with the 7.3 then it is a powerstroke.

well start with guages...if you wanna crank out the power you are gonna need to watch to make sure you don't hurt the engine. Talk to our vendors on here and ask them...also Private message Tubz and Luke Cline...they are pushing some crazy numbers with OBS (old body style) engines. Ill private message them and refer them to this link i think it would be quicker that way.
