Ford introduced the first 6.9L diesel engine for their light duty trucks in 1983. The naturally aspirated, indirect injection (IDI) engine featured a Stanadyne DB2 injection pump, and put out a very respectable 170 horsepower for the day. The 6.9L was bored out to 7.3L in 1987. The original 7.3L diesel was a non-turbo charged IDI engine. It was followed shortly after by a turbocharged version, but otherwise remained basically the same throughout 1993. We have been working with these engines since their introduction and can help you with everything from glow plugs to a complete re-manufactured engine. If you're looking for a replacement injection pump or injectors, then you have come to the right place. There are very few performance modifications available for the 6.9L and 7.3L IDI engines. But if you're a dedicated 6.9L or 7.3L IDI owner, then check out our Banks Sidewinder Performance Packages. As always, if you don't see what you came here looking for, then please give us a call so that we can help you find it.
