Question Should I buy a '99 7.3?

I'm looking at spending a good chunk of money on a E-350 van that has a Quigley 4WD conversion in it. Any thoughts from a tainted or untainted owner? Things to look for?

Also I tried to reply to a post and it said I was not authorized - do I need to pay to post or was I just doing something wrong?

I must have been clicking the wrong buttons. I've been able to make a post just not sure if I should buy the power stroke. I currently own a standard 7.3 in a 93 F-350

I think the quigley van would be pretty cool to have!! As for posting, you should be able to post in any area you see unless it it closed or locked. There are some areas you cannot see such as premium member/moderator forums and stuff but since you can't see 'em you can't post in 'em.

I think the E-series has a weaker program in them, they can be a pain in the rear to work on, other than that, they are ok. I am not sure about mods for them. We run the dog out of the E-series in EMS, Alot of them are really strong and run forever, but there are some of them that suck. I guess that is true with all vehicles. Oh, and a nuther thing, You should look to see where the oil filter is, some of them are a pain in the butt to cahnge the oil on. Maybe its just the new 6.0s, but I think ford shows 3 hours for an oil change. Just something to think about.

As far as the quigly part, they build strong rigs and never seen any problems out of the stuff they have done. Hope this helps a little. And some of the tech that work on these things can tell you more about working on them.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the welcome and I obviously figured out how to post if you can read this.

There is NOT a lot of room under the hood of the E series vans but I'm assuming that the motor and components are mostly the same....
