Diesel Performance?

Hi, yea i was wondering what i could do to my diesel to beef up the torque a good amount. I have a 1988 F-250 with the 7.3L and a hypermax turbo with cowl induction. I was wondering if i could find a bigger turbo somewhere and add propane injection to boost my torque. I was just looking for someone's experience with this stuff and what the best way to gain alot of torque would be. Thanks, Justin

Swap in a cummins turbo diesel. I have a clip of a F350 Crew Cab jacked to the sky that ran an 11.42 (woulda run an 11 if he hadnt been sound asleep at the light!) at 118 mph! If you want a copy of the clip it's 5.62mb wmp file.

Re: Diesel Performance?

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Your best bet would probably be to give Gale Banks a call and see what they can hook you up with. It's probably expensive, but I've seen a few older Ferds running around with some Banks emblems. I've not looked, since I have a Cummins diesel, but I'm guessing they're the most common "full solution provider" (i.e. turbo, box, exhaust, etc all in one place) for such a vehicle.</font>
