1999 F250, 7.3 with 6 speed. Napa filter intake, MBRP 4" and TS6 chip. The few mods I did improved the MPG if I can keep my foot out of it, she is strong.

Those Ford 7.3L diesels may have been a little on the noisy side, but they were (and still are) a great engine!

x2. I lost count of the number of times I saw people scurrying out their front door with their garbage bag on pickup day or children on school days as I approached and passed by their house. Besides the noise, the 7.3 also had a distinctive exhaust odor than that of most other diesels.

Great engine, but its Achilles heel was the Camshaft Positioning Sensor (CPS). I replaced it twice in mine and carried a spare... just in case.

Bought this truck late July. Moved up from a 1/2 ton!
And contrary to some diesel owners this gas engine can tow more than a bag of chips.
