On the look for a new rebuilt engine for 1997 f250 powerstroke

Hello psn!! I am on the look out for a rebuilt, or remanufactored engine for my 1997 Ford F-250 7.3 power stroke. I want to get this rebuilt engine, and I want to do a little stuff to it after I get it,(injectors, HPOP, bigger turbo with wicked wheel, etc etc. I herd of the rivivas company that remanufactures engines, and I herd they do a really good job doing it. I still haven’t settled yet, and would still keep researching. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!

ford reman from the dealer parts department is the only way i would go.

reviva and jasper engines are for getting the truck running to get rid of it to some unsuspecting sap that does not know any better.
i have never heard of a reviva engine lasting for more than about 10,000 miles.
jasper has gotten a little better, but i still would never use one of their engines.

RCE,

What about these guys: powerstrokehelp.com? I don't know what opinions various folks around PSN have about Bill, but I have found his videos helpful and interesting.

his sole purpose is to drum up business for his shop by recommending non needed "repairs"

99% of the people that know ford diesels only watch his videos for the humor content in them, because you are guaranteed to laugh your but off watching them..

Ford factory reman, black mamba, and swamps are a few reputable builders that I would go through

Yeah, I get that... but I’ve looked on Fords website and they have Diesel engines, but they don’t have the 1997 7.3?? Where should I buy it from then?

Go into Ford and ask them for it at the parts dept. Or call them. They come with everything minus turbo and injectors.

tell them it is for a 97 F350.
the computers get stupid when you say 97 F250 and try to give you parts for the "new" light duty F150-7700 truck, otherwise known as a light duty F250 with 7 lug wheels, or a glorified F150 as we call it up here

Re: On the look for a new rebuilt engine for 1997 f250 powerstroke

tjctransport, your posts are helpful so I'm curious about your negative comment. Are you referring to Bill and his website Powerstrokehelp.com? If you are, I don't understand from my perspective. I've learned very much about what to look for and how to address 6.0 issues, repairs and upgrades by using his website. I've 2 '04 6.0s and got tired of the grief; 6.0 issues and mechanic/dealership incompetence and ripoffs! So searching the interwebs I found PSH and have been able to understand and solve EGR, FICM, oil cooler, ICP, IPR issues, et al. We all have our opinions and IMO/experience PSH was and is a very helpful resource.
