hey, ajordan193 thanks this truck just dropped into my lap, been looking for a newer truck for a while now, the truck is super clean still can't believe I got it. As soon as i figure out how to post a picture on the site, I will snap a digital photograph and send it. looking forward to tweaking the motor. I have alot to learn about the 7.3 psd, but everone on this site has been cool and helpful. I going to ask all the diesel heads on the best chip to use, superchip or dp tuner and what the differances are between the two. thanks again.

Congrats on the truck, i've always loved this body style since i was a little kid and wish mine wasn't rusting. I have a 97 F250HD Reg cab 4x4 7.3 with 119k, i purchased it as a work truck since i own a landscape and plowing company and this truck kicks ***. I have upgraded everything on the truck including F350 suspension and axles. I also added a superchips programmer and its ok but i would go with something different if it was my personal truck. I'm not a fan of the hard shifts i get from this programmer so i'm sure others will guide you on the right track. Good luck with the truck

that is a steal that you got! beef up the tranny and get a chip, exhaust, and intake, in that order would be pretty good.

I think Corey or someone posted that they couldn't get an OASIS report on the OBS trucks, just the Super Duties. I think it was something about more than 10 years old and Ford didn't have to keep the info...

I'd beef up the tranny... put a D66 turbo, hybrid injectors, some studs and custom programming and call it a day.

I have a 96 obs and didn't see hardly any difference when I put a superchips tuner on my truck when it was bone stock. I borrowed the tune and ran it for two weeks and am really glad I never bought one. Go with DP. Everyone loves them.
