Im looking into buying a 1990 ford f-250 with a 7.3l non-turbo motor, I dont know much about how these are set up but i was wondering if anyone knows how hard it would be to turbo it, If even worth buying the truck or should i look for one that already a turbo diesel

you need manifolds in take turbo pluming and i would do an intercooler but when its all said and done youd have been better off getting a 1995-97 i almost bought an 89 with a 7.3 non turbo be for i bought my 90 f-350 gas but my dad just bought a 1997 f-250 7.3 turbo with technicooler and some other goodies for 6000 rust free beautiful body so this just shows you there are deals out there

you could always go an ats turbo and not mess with the manifolds and crap just another option. but id hold out for a powerstroke.

went and looked at the truck today. It was overall in really good shape no rust on the body and has a new trans and glow plugs and injectors. But i think im going to still look cause i would like a powerstroke

Was it an extended cab 4x4? If so I sure would like the contact information if you don't want it.
