If you get a 7.3 then try to find a 2002 or early 03. They're more refined, just have a nicer look. The 7.3 is a great choice for sure. I'd go that, or a 6.7.

yea they'll be cheaper, and there will be way more feedback on them. Not to mention more aftermarket components.

One more vote on the 7.3! The last GREAT engine made by Navistar for Ford. Go with whatever year you want on it, but I'd steer clear of early 1999 due to the frankenstein type setup of it.

*R.I.P* 2001F250 7.3 4x2 CC SB
DIY AEM Dryflow intake, 5" Straight Pipe, TW 6pos chip.

Current Ride: 2004F250 6.0 4x4 CCLB King Ranch. Leveled and gutted with a Walker BTM.

2011 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide 103" Screamin' Eagle, stage 1 intake, stage 2 cams, Kerker Stout 4" exhaust. Custom body work and paint.
