The only factory turbo trucks were 93-94, you could have an early 93 that still counts as a 92.

i have a VIN decoder on another site. if you want to post the VIN, i can run it for you and give you a printout.

well all it seems to be that it is a 92 truck it has a newer turbo diesel and whoever did the swap also did the dash change

IDI, first years of the PSD was 94.5 and you could only get a PSD then with a ZF5, the 94.5 with auto trans was still an IDI

He said its he thinks its swapped, I was asking if someone had swapped it to a powerstroke not if the 92 year was an IDI

Maybe be converted to a Powerstroke. The factory turboed engines in the 93-94 did not say "turbo diesel" on the tach. Only powerstrokes said that. Also unless they used the "turbo diesel" decal/sticker, switching the tach in the dash did not work either. PSD's and IDI's had a different tach signal.

We need pics....
