Is early 99 an upgrade

I have the opportunity to salvage any and all of a 99 build date 8/11/98. I am wondering if it is worth using turbo, hpop etc. on my 97 listed in sig? Also does anyone know of a site listing the various years of 7.3's and the changes made year to year?

The injectors are 135cc instead of the 90cc stock '97s unless your truck is a cali truck in which case they are the same. They will be split shots instead of single shots but they are actually the best ones to mess with as far as swapping out for single shot P&Bs or making hybrids out of. The turbo is the same as well. You could get the fuel system off. Mainly the fuel bowl and pump. You'd probably want to plumb the rest yourself. You could also get the intercooler stuff as mentioned. The only parts you will really need are just the Y pipe and the cooler. The pipes don't work very well and they are aluminum so if you try to use them they will rub on everything and get holes in them.

'96 F-250 Extended Cab, GT'S injectors, GT'S intercooler install kit, custom turbo kit with a little HX40, Swamp's BIGEST oil.

It does have a waste gate. Not sure if it is a step up though.

IIRC, Early 99's have AB injectors that are 120cc split shot.
