Question Looking at a 99 7.3

I found a guy wanting to sell his pickup which I am interested in. I havnt called him on it yet, but will this afternoon. It seems a little fishy tho because of all the rebuilds on such low mileage. This pickup jus may have had a very rough life idk, but i would like to know what others think.

FOR SALE: 1999 F-250 Powerstroke. 206,000 miles, 15,000 on fresh complete overhaul.
* New re-man 6 speed transmition (5,000 miles on it)
* Brand new Valair double-disc clutch.
* Brand new adrenaline high pressure oil pump
* 100hp injectors
* New stock lift pump
* King Ranch bucket seats, both power and heated, fair condition. Drivers side needs repairs
* Decent A/T tires (front 90%, rear 45%)
* Installed homemade traction bars
* Warn hub lockers
* Transfer case was replaced around 130,000 miles
* Front end was redone around 160,000 miles
* Edge Evolution Included
* Stock turbo feels great
* 4in down pipe, full 5in exhaust, 6in tip
* Decent breaks all around
* Heat and A/C works
* ARP head studs, but needs head gasket done

Dont really want to sell, but cant afford performance parts like I want. Head gasket is blown (cheap fix if you do your own labor).

1996 F250 I solded it

2008 lifted duramax dually

Re: Looking at a 99 7.3

So i called the guy yesterday and talked to him for a few minutes. He says that he has stock AD injectors with 200% nozzles. Which the pickup is an early 99, dont really know how much difference AD's would make over AB's which came in the pickup. Wouldnt really want a huge nozzle like that on a stock inj but i dont really know much so.. Maybe someone here could chime in and share their thoughts on this pickup.. I would grealty appreciate it

I think early are 120cc and late are 140cc. Early 99s suck imho.

Re: Looking at a 99 7.3

thats kind of what im thinking. I sure wouldnt have an edge even if it was stock because ive been there an done that lol. but im just wondering if the new engine is ok or will running those injectors with 200% nozzles and a stinkin Edge ruin the engine super fast.

The best thing I have learned on here is if you dont know exactly what injectors or motor has done to it pass cause you will fight it trying to tune it and working on it.

Re: Looking at a 99 7.3
