Howdy guys, I've been a lurker on your site for a while and was hoping to get some input. I current own a 2001 F250 ext cab v10. It has 130k on it and runs great. It's been the most reliable truck I've ever owned. It's the second V10 I've bought. The first one I sold due to fuel mileage (CA) and bought a 99 7.3PS that was supposed to be the cats ass. I loved the truck. But after 6 months it started leaving me in parking lots. So I put $3k into the fuel system ( hpop, glowplugs, harnesses, exhaust doughnuts etc.) and it didn't solve my problems. My friend that was helping me wrench on it said I needed to go full nut and put new injectors in it at a cost of another $2700 (1999, one year only parts for the 7.3) I got fed up and dumped the diesel for another V10 (my current rig). I'm moving to Idaho this summer and will need to commute to central CA to farm my almond trees. So the V10 fuel mileage again shows it's ass. So here is my options..... I want to build an IDI diesel.... Do I tear apart the V10 and transplant a 6.9 with a zf5? Buy a late 80s early 90s F350 IDI and rebuild? Or roll the dice on a 200k mile powerstroke and dump $5k into the fuel sys, and in the case of a 6.0 bullet proof and emissions delete? (Bit me in the ass last round) Or suck ass on the fuel mileage of the V10 and have a nice day? Either way this will cost large cash, but it's cheaper than an $80k truck I can't afford and I love the idea of the reliability of the IDI even with reduced power.... we are talking 2k miles a month in commute. Any info including flaming is appriciated Bring it, thanks guys!
