Ah, the Power Stroke.  A legendary name for a legendary motor.  An engine born out of Ford’s desire to transform its line of Super Duty trucks into the very best, setting a new standard for the entire industry. The story of the Power Stroke actually began in 1982, but it wasn’t until 1994 when it truly took the world by storm.

0911dp_022011_ford_f350_super_dutypowerstroke_diesel_engine1994 is when we saw the birth of a legend – the 7.3 liter Power Stroke turbo diesel.  With direct injection, turbocharger with wastegate, and an air-to-air intercooler, the might 7.3 took the world by storm. Widely considered as one of the finest diesel engines ever produced, a whopping 2+ million still roam our streets today.

Sadly, the lovable lump suffered a premature death thanks to new emissions requirements.  Though its replacement produced more power and torque with lower emissions, cylinder head issues and subsequent recalls killed its reputation.

If you’re one of the folks who still gets misty eyed every time you see or hear an old 7.3 pulling away from a stoplight, we’ve got a special treat for you.  6+ minutes of Power Stroke porn is here for your perusal, from basic burnouts to revving engines to rolling coal.  Just because.  Enjoy!
