Talking What a IDI 7.3 Turbo looks like when you blow it to hell

My 7.3 IDI held up for about two years : I rebuilt it , added a huge intercooler , tunred up the pump, threw on turbo from a DT466 and abused it mercilessly.

Look closely at the pics -

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if....
Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes
and government intrusion, while slothful, lazy behavior
is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid and
subsidized housing, and free cell phones.

Well brother you gotter done.....

Although, if your goal was to ruin the engine.. Next time save yourself some cash....

1. Remove oil drain plug.
2. Place 50 lbs. of something on the small pedal in the cab.
3. Stand back until it gets quiet again.
4. Post pics on TDG.
5. The results will be similar.

It was done cheap; I machined it (030 over) myself and got a hellove price on a rebuild kit. Didnt plan on blowing it, but all I could do is shrug it off. My 7.3 IDI daily driver is stock now to play it safe

Boost; I think 16-17 psi. The EGT never went past 1200 for the most part; I think it hydro-locked judgiung by how the rod bent

WOW I have a diesel Samurai that I have blown 13 times from over boost and high EGT's. Always the head seldom the block. As a toy it was cool to push it so hard and see the faces of awe. I could get 30 MPG and pass every Jeep on the mountain. Now I have finished the last rebuild with nothing left to machine unless I sleave the motor. I did turn down everything again as close to stock and the first drive was a little disappointing. No real rush with acceleration but I should get 30-35 MPG still and go anywhere I need.
