What is the difference??????????

Just wondering what the main difference is in the 2000 through 2002 models? What changed in the engine? What is the best year of the 3 to buy, or isn't there much difference? Thanks

Id say 2000... just cause of the rods alone. PMRs are a big limiter on what a truck can make HP wise.

I would get a 99. Because not all 2000's have forged rods.

Do forged rods make a big difference? Sorry new to powerstrokes and don't know a whole lot about motors in general.

according to this months diesel power PMRs are found in engines with serial numbers 1425747. but some forged rods were found in engines with serial numbers 1440713-1498318. after thet they went back to pmrs.
