    Default How much is a 7.3 IDI worth?


    I have the opportunity to buy a 7.3 IDI complete with about 120k miles. I am thinking of buying it for just the oil cooler, as I am out of options at this point.
    He is asking $400. How much do you think I could get for this engine after I take the oil cooler? Just looking to recoup my money i guess. Thanks

    $400 is a steal! better grab it before he comes to his senses, or someone else gets it, don't think, buy.....

    If you go look at it see what the block serial numbers are. They are found on the drivers side of the block next to the injection pump gear cover. They will say 7.3T... Then some numbers... The true turbo blocks serial numbers start at 1,116,331 and go up from there. Anything below that is a non turbo block. Also all the oil port plugs are 1/4 inch instead of the 1/8 pipe plugs.
    89 SRW crewcab, Banks Sidewinder Turbo, 8 speed BTS E4OD with a Gear Vendors, Shifts smooth and positive with any load on it. Triple disc torque converter has 150 square inches of friction material, stock has just 25 square inches of material.Transcold Carrier pump helping out Moose Pump and just loven it. 4 inch Straight piped, hydroboost with a 1 5/16 inch master cylinder. 7.3 turbo upgraded motor, ported heads, intake & exhaust manifolds. ARP studs. Block sleeved on all 8. Mahle turbo pistons milled, are 24 to 26 thousands above the deck, then ceramic coated with Tech Line CBX. Line bored and balanced. Decked block. Each piston is 1/4 and 1/3rd gram of each others weight. "BB" injectors. Custom Rodney Red aluminum radiator and running cool. Now it needs my new Hypermax intercooler to help out the famous Moose Pump and a set of Moose Injecters thrown in just for giggles...Double FatMat inside of the crewcab... Nice and quiet too...

    ok cool! Thanks guys! He had bought the engine for his tow truck because it came with an ATS turbo....its the real old style with the wierd looking exhaust housing. I will be buying it for $350! Im gonna steal the oil cooler, and part out the rest. I will check to see if its a turbo block. are they worth more? It also comes with full acessories and a new starter!...it is a running engine!

    Have have two 7.3's that I've bought over the last 5 years. Both were runners. One came with a good E4OD. I paid $200 a piece for the IDI's and $200 for the E4OD. Not a big market for them here I guess.
