mine is a 1993 F250 - 7.3 non-turbo with 235000 on it
i've heard that the bottom ends not strong enuf for a turbo
is it true? mine runs like it did when i bough it new . i've really taken cear of it
oil and lube jobs ever 5000 miles and never go over more then a 100 or so.
it doesnt smoke or use oil between lub jobs.
i just put a new set of injuctors in it 800 miles back. its given me the best service of any truck i've had.
i just want to increse my fule millage is all i dont need any more power.
thanks for your input .
