    does the ford 7.3L diesel come with a turbo or not because it says power stroke diesel but on the new 6.0L it has Power stroke turbo diesel for the sign on the truck.

    99 should be the first year of the powerstroke turbo diesel.
    You should feel it kick in at about 1,500 RPM (after the turbo lag).
    It will have a 3rd radiator (intercooler) in the front with some big aluminum pipes leading to it.

    Thanks for the info on the power stroke diesel
     
  6. and you will hear the sound of it spooling...and the whosh when the wast gate opens..
    99 are turbo diesels...
    and they are much better if you reprogram the computer...more power..better pickup, better fuel econemy..

    '88 was the first year for the non turbo 7.3. '93 was the first year for an indirectly injected turbo 7.3, '94 was the first year for the powerstroke direct injection turbo. In 94 you could get any of the above depending on how much you wanted to spend. as of 94.5 all you could get was a powerstroke 7.3 turbo up until the 6.0 was introduced.
