The Ford 7.3-liter Powerstroke diesel engine is known as an unrelenting workhorse. Whether the truck owner is hauling a heavy tractor or powering through a muddy off-road trail, the 7.3-liter Powerstroke is engineered to get the job done. Although it is a potent motor, it is capable of delivering even more performance. Here are some upgrades to help squeeze more power from a 7.3-liter Powerstroke engine.
Performance Exhaust System
The stock exhaust system is not geared toward performance. Its main objective is to minimize the amount of exhaust noise. The installation of a performance exhaust system will instantly boost the 7.3-liter Powerstroke engine’s horsepower and torque. The stainless steel design will also last for many years to come.
Cold Air Intake
Unlike the restrictive factory intake, a cold air intake is able to deliver unlimited amounts of fresh air into the engine. This makes the engine a much better performer in all driving situations. The best part is that the average backyard mechanic can easily complete the installation at home.
Like most turbocharged diesel engines, the 7.3-liter Powerstroke’s turbocharger needs to remain as cool as possible. Not only will the upgraded intercooler enhance the truck’s performance, but it will also prolong the life of the turbocharger.
A power programmer is a device that can alter the performance parameters of the truck’s engine and transmission. Most drivers find that the power of the 7.3-liter Powerstroke engine is being severely limited by the stock computer settings.
