6.9 f350

i was wondering. im looking at a 86 f350 with a banks intake and banks turbo kit. i dont know much about the 6.9 but how reliable are they? and will this thing move out of its own way or would i be better to wait? thanks for your help.

Yeah, those ole trucks are pretty reliable. It sounds like a fun toy to me. As far as speed.....there not the quickest but they pull strong.

Is it a stick or auto?

Cool, looks like a fun truck! It'll probably be a dog with those 40's but fun to play with. Not sure where you're from but the price seems a little high.

Yeah it should have a 3 speed C6. These are cheap to rebuild, easy to come by!

I don't think your gonna get big HP out of it but with the banks turbo it already has plus I think you can turn up the fuel pump you outta be able to have fun with it. With the naturally aspirated motor you are limited to aftermarket products.
