94 turbo diesel VS. 95 PSD??????

How does a 94 f350 Turbo diesel w/auto trans 4x4, compare to a 95 f350 PSD 4x4? I know the Tranny's are crap, but engine wise?

the idi diesels are hard workers but very slow and doggy. speed wise and heavy towing the powerstroke will win but the old diesels have allot of low end grunt that just keeps going.

Both are good engines. I would rather have the powerstroke.

I thought the Powerstroke and IDI were both offered in 94. The 94 IDI made 190 hp and 388 TQ vs the 95 powerstroke at 210/425. If they are both Powerstokes I would think they would be the same power, etc, yes?

Hey Rankroddin, wanna race my doogy slow IDI against your 96? Maybe we can get on Pinks? I'll give you one truck length, all motor, no gas

in 94 is when they went to the powerstroke, 94.5 and on are power stroke and before that they were turbo diesel, some of the very late trucks that said TURBO DIESEL were in fact powerstrokes! They are both good engines, and the autos are decent, if you maintain them they are pretty good, we have a irrigation company and my personal truck we got 205K out of the trans, E4OD and we had a 89 with a E4OD and it went 189K and was still good when it got wrecked, but we maintain them. EVERYTHING THAT IS MECHANICAL/ELECTRONIC WILL BREAK SOMETIME!

One of the main differences in the Power Stroke is that they use a HEUI Fuel system designed by CAT. The electronics allow for better starts, more power and better fuel economy.

I had a 94 powerstroke with a 5spd and it was a heck of a truck at 250,000. All I had was an intake, aftermarket turbo, and exhaust and I dare say the truck had more nuts then the truck I drive now. Great for towing, I couldnt slow tht truck down. I got 18mpg cruising down the road at 70 and 13-15 towing a 20ft goosneck horstrailer.
