Hey Kyle, welcome to the PSD side! Looks like you found yourself a survivor! Are you sure it's a PSD? Is it a manual transmission? All the 94 PSDs had manuals, if it's an auto truck you probably have an IDI Turbo there. Not a bad engine in its own right, but not a PSD either.

Oh, and if it's turbo'd then you have to come up with a new signature tagline, lol.

At any rate, that's not a bad looking truck if you lose the running boards (or leave them if you like 'em -- it's your truck!). Welcome aboard!

Just look under the hood. If the oil filler is on the valve cover on the passenger side, it is a PSD; if it is in the middle of the front cover, it is an IDIT. Still a great engine and much simpler to work on.

If the oil filter is anywhere NEAR either of those places, the OP is in a heap of trouble....

If you zoom in on the fender, it doesn't look like 'powerstroke'.

Six of the seven vehicles in the picture are trucks. That's my kind of place

Glenn the early powerstroke had turbo diesel on the fender like the IDI. I have only seen a handful like this but I have seen them.
