97 f-350 re-build.
Alright so I'm not too big on documenting build threads so this isn't going to be very exciting. but I picked up a clean 97 CCLB with a 7.3 for cheap. Has a cavitated block. Yesterday I got the engine ready to pull, Tomorrow she is coming out.
Here's the plan.
1: Have the heads gone through, Surfaced and what not.
2: Short Block from ford
3: New Injectors, Stg 1 or 2 from Industrial Or Swamps with tune
(lets here what you think about either, and i'd appreciate facts about their product)
4: Turbo- Super89, or D66
(same with turbos
5: Intercooler, Tranny Cooler
(got a deal on a 6.0)
6: 4inch exhaust with no cat
(betting my cat is toast after all the coolant I found in there.)
7: Put her together and start saving for a tranny.
Attached is pic of how she sits now
I'd like to hear some good info of problematic issues to fix while she is out, Like exhaust header leaks and other crap that you always run into.
New to the powerstroke so its gonna be a learning process
