    Just bought a '93 idi with 129k on it. I've never owned an idi or 7.3L for that matter, so I wanted to know what are some popular or common upgrades that many people on this thread do?

    I'm going to be using this as a ranch truck, so I wanted to upgrade power to some degree allowing it plenty of capability for anything I might get myself into.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hit the stickies, then the tech, then put that info to the truck.
    A good fuel system, a turbo and intercooler and pipe, russ ( type 4 ) cam .... Now it starts to get spendy!

    Read through the TECH articles that would be your best source for up-grades that work. Fuel, Starter and charging would be the first things I would take care of to make it ready for winter! Just saying

    Another Houston guy, hi! Is your NA or Turbo? That's pretty low miles to turn into a farm truck...

    It's an na... I know it. Want to do some upgrades to it and see how well I fit into it. It's a 4 speed, so it'll get tough driving around the big city.

    I drive my '90 in Houston traffic regularly, that clutch is stiff but it isn't too bad. I need to finish fixing the air conditioning, and install a working radio... and this:
