Can anybody give some details on general difference between those two , plus some data like HP. torkque, etc. with manual transmission.
I have F-250 6.9 1986 and I am thinking of buying 1995 F-350 7.3
need some advice....thanks
The passenger side valve cover on my 86 6.9 has two different HP's listed 150 and 175. Mine is the 175HP model. Torque should be in the ballpark of 300-325 ft/lbs. Can't really help you too much with the powerstroke. I would love one but it just occured to me that I don't really know for sure what the HP and torque specs are. Hope this helps.

The 6.9's unless they have California emissions are 175 HP and 315lbs of torque. The new 7.3 "PowerStroke's" are 215~235 HP and about 500 ft. lbs. (SAE net).
The powerstrokes have direct injection and they are turbocharged. The 6.9's use a pre-chamber where the fuel is injected and they never had a turbo. They only disadvantage about the powerstrokes is that they are extremely loud inside the cab, but if you want power then you won't mind the noise. The injection system on a powerstroke is very expensive to repair and the injectors are VERY sensitive to water. The injection system is not serviceable by the home mechanic, and most places even ford, do not know how to work on them. The people that I know personally have had great luck with their powerstrokes. Other's on this message board have had some real nightmares.
There were some indirect injected diesels built for the 1991 through 1994 model years with factory turbos installed. They were rated at 190 HP and 425 FT Lb of torque. For 2001 the F series manual trans equiped engine is rated at 275 HP and 520 FT LB. Most of the others are either 250 or 235 HP
