Probably more than what you were looking for, but it seems like your doing some research about possibly buying a superduty with a 7.3L. Good choice...lol...I love this truck and I haven't been able to kill it yet (unless my mom or sister drive it and run it out of fuel >.<, lesson learned don't fall asleep on long trips!). I included the Repairs and upgrade wants to give you an idea of what you can do to older superduty's to update them and make them look newer while keeping a 7.3L!!!!!

7.3L Stroken 4 life!!!
