Lookin to buy a 92 F350 and need some questions answered

Whats the difference gonna be between a IDI and a powerstroke? I'd say less power, but would it be noticeable? and im also curious if fuel economy will be worse

An IDI 6.9/7.3 does not have a turbo, and are indirect injected, meaning mechanical injection pump. A 7.3L "powerstroke" engine does have a turbo, and the engine is electronically controlled. Their is a noticeable difference in power,mostly seat of the pants feeling. A 6.9/7.3 IDI will still tow just fine. Of course, having a turbo is always better, and will give more power, but also better fuel economy. I hope this helps a little, maybe someone else will chime in.
