i dont believe that it is. it is a mechanically-injected 7.3L v8 turbo diesel. made by who? not international. it certainly doesnt have the electronics of a powerstroke. hmm, custom!

Hey it still resembles a powerstroke in a few ways.....so it is still a powerstroke.


explain.... a 7.3 "powerstroke" is a DT444 a 6.0 powerstroke is a VT360 ( I think) or its 350 something like that. powerstroke is just a name! the only thing stock about that 7.3 is the block......

how is it this close.......!
i couldnt tell ya/ probably because this is a mainly ford site and they wont let it go.

seriously people, if its a powerstroke, which aftermarket chips or programmers can you use? what about upgraded or dual HPOPs? injectors? turbos? hmm.... you wont find any that will work on this motor. whys that? because its NOT A POWERSTROKE.

I voted no. This is not a powerstroke. C'mon guys, the powerstroke is just a name given for ford. This is probably not even a 7.3 anymore than it is a DT444. I can gaurantee it is bored out and stroked out to more like a 460 or such. So that is that. Besides, it is more like a mechanical stroker or p-pumping stroker. I don't know? I just know it is not a powerstroke no more.

well it started as a powerstroke...if you were gonna tell someone what motor you had, you wouldnt say a 7.8L blah blah blah, you'd say a heavily modified 7.3 PSD

still doesnt make it a powerstroke. if it was mine, i wouldnt say powerstroke. i'd say it is a p-pumped, compound turbo'd, 7.3L.

I think if it is in a ford, and is a 7.3 liter it is tech. a powerstroke. Powerstroke was the name given to it by ford. It has a totally one off fuel system yes i agree, no more heui. But the base engine it was designed off of was a powerstroke. The guy took his powerstorke and wanted to make it competitive with the big dodges. Still has ford heads that where welded up and machined. I don't know how many cubic inches it is. I mean is it you guys are mad he took a powerstoke and did this to it? So that went against the base engine. It is a engine that originally, came in a ford and was a powerstroke. Its a 7.3 powerstroke that has its flaws ditched to me. No matter the case it is awesome, and i think it is dumb to argue, weather or not it is a powerstroke. That's what i think.
