I have a 2004 with a built date of 9/19/03, which is a good truck. Have had only a few problem to date with 32000 miles.
You're right! I mistyped. Change the 2003 to 2002 and my post will be correct.

After November 2002 Ford did not build the 7.3L in ANYTHING.

Actually, Australia doesn't produce them, according to what Fred has said, they are being produced in Brazil.

It really starts getting weird when you start looking at Ford's global website. They make the Ford F250 for Brazilian market with a 4.2L 6c turbo diesel "they also come with a LOJACK installed". In Australia they're offered with the 5.4 gasser or the 7.3L turbo diesel but made in Brazil. It's wierd how they launch a new truck here but continue to produce the old style somewhere else or vice versa.

That Brazilian made truck is also sold in South Africa with the 4.2 MWM engine.

The 4.2 used to be sold here up until 2003 - but got dropped due to emissions. The BEST diesel I have ever worked with, would run for a million miles no dramas, a little underpowered though.
MWM recently got bought out by Navistar, and I believe the South American F-trucks are going to the 4BT Cummins...

Why would they use the 4BT Cummins? Its only got 125 HP and is a very small liter engine, 3.9L all it is a 5.9 ISB with 2 cylinders cut off........

They don't give a damm about power - thats why.
I do believe it will be the Common Rail variant with more than 125hp though...

Funny- you brought up a great point. This is the only country on the planet that puts power/performance as the top priority in a diesel. For most third-world countries, it's the ability to run on crappy fuel, in extreme climates, with a minimum of maintenance and repairs. In Europe, fuel mileage takes top slot. In Australia, power is an issue- but not for towing speed. Anyone that's ever seen a "road train" knows what I'm talking about- it's the ability to pull ungodly amounts of weight down mostly unpaved roads in extreme heat.

Just thought I would change that

I am still amazed at the people that call a 300hp 5.4l V8 "underpowered"...
Here we still get the 260hp 2V version, and in the trade world (read: owners that haul 3 tons) it is considered an absolute belter in terms of performance.
- the reason being they are used to a 90hp diesel to do the same thing.

I don't think any of us (me included) are in a posistion to complain about performance.
Until you have seen a Suzuki Van powered by a 600cc triple hauling over a ton going up an 8% grade in SE Asia you don't quite understand what the rest of the world has to live with in terms of performance.

Having said that, more power is always good

If there wasn't a 345 HP Silverado in the 'hood with better transmission gearing, it probably wouldn't be. Hint- check the 1st gear ratio on the GM tranny and the Ford tranny- explains everything. edit: except the drive-by-wire thing. The F150/Expy is geared sluggish off the line, and has the DBW to further delay forward progress.

Once upon a time, a typical US 3/4T pickup had a 300 six and a 4-spd transmission. Folks put Campers on them, hung boats out the back, and the trucks went everywhere- and back. Not at 70 mph uphill, mind you- but they got there, first time/every time.

The new mid year 2006 GMC/Chevy Pick up offer an automatic SIX SPEED ALLISON Transmission. Any word on the 2007 F250/F350 to do the same to the Torque Shift ? Or is that overkill to mess with the Toqueshift five speed ?
