I know this is an old thread, but wondering how the truck above has held up? What's needed to squeeze 300hp from these old engines?

My brother in law has a '93, 7.3 turbo (factory rated 190/420 IIRC) and he is considering a Cummins swap to try to get about 300/600 from his truck. He doesn't want to go with the newer engines with...

One thing I need to correct, was working off memory on the first post, and as I re-read the truck has 154K on it, not 140. A little more but not enough to make a huge difference to me.

Is it worth it?

I came across an '08 Superduty, with 55K on a new (replacement) engine, that the owner now says has a "noise" in the engine. It's not local to me so I haven't seen or heard the engine.

My problem is being retired and on a fixed income, so lots of repair cash just isn't available. I prefer something reliable from the getgo. Thanks, and sorry to hijack the thread.
