Hello everybody, i picked up a 1999 ford f250 powerstroke for 2400 dollars for my senior project, ill post pictures and tell about everything im doing.
Truck- 1999 Ford F250 7.3L Powerstroke Turbo Diesel
Miles- 338,000 (high but not bad for a 7.3)
Current condition- PERFECT body minus a few dents, Needs headliner
Needed parts to make it inspectable- Front Brake pads and a License plate light
Previous owner totally rebuilt the entire front end so i wont have to worry about ball joints, bearings, etc
Current mods- 4 inch turbo back straight pipe that exits just in front of the rear tire, Quadzilla programmer, Cone filter. (should have it at around 320hp/600tq, not bad for a regular cab 2wd, probably lower due to the need for a rebuild)
NOW, for the plans.... first im gonna rebuild the turbo, (338k theres gotta be some shaft play in it..) Update the interior to a 2008, Update the front end headlights grill etc, 7 Inch miter cut stacks in the bed that dont go over cab level, tool box, Gauge pillar with Trans temp, fuel press, boost, ext temp, different tuner probably bully dog or edge performance Maybe some nicer wheels, remove bed and paint frame, Tear engine apart to check rings and such (even though theirs no blow by), AND anything else that comes up, ill keep every body updated. Oh, and possibly a Southbend dual disk auto clutch, arp head studs, and some 100 horse injectors, maybe a different turbine wheel or faster spooling turbo
Keep in mind i am 17, and doing all the work myself. If you see anything that i am doing wrong or have a different idea, let me know! My dad works all the time so im on my own with this one haha.
Current Pictures Below: (ill get more detailed pictures when i pick it up saturday)
