Seems like with the Ford crowd that owns trucks with 6.9 & 7.3's like the 6.9's better. Hypermax and Banks makes a turbo kit for either one.

If I was you I'd drop a cummins in there. It might be a little more work with motor mounts and a new tranny but you'll be alot happier in the long long long run. Stop by a STERLING DEALER. That's where I traded my 94 International 699d series in on a STERLING. I didn't have anything done to it but in stock set up I received 5 miles better fuel economy faster top speed and 75% less down shifts. STERLING had a Cummins setup already in my truck. So they should be able to point you in the right direction. Good Luck!

'We sold a Turbo in 2 weeks to a guy in Houston! We also sold the first engine we listed - an old Hatz. It took 2 months to sell but that was OK as we couldn't move it locally. We track visitors to our website and we get lots from DieselEngineTrader.com. Your website really works, it's a great service and we'll be using DieselEngineTrader.com for years to come!'
