This BMAF Edition 2003 F350 not only gets the job done, but it gets it done well.

We must admit this is one of the cleanest Fords we've seen in a while. With the custom front end it's definitely one of a kind. First off there's a Garrett GT-38R for a Superduty Ford fitted under the hood, Hybrid 530 injectors, a City Diesel 6.0L intercooler, a one-off homemade electric fuel system, full built E40D transmission, 5"_ dual mitre cut stacks, and a DP Tuner multi-position chip. The truck is sitting on a 4"_ Tuff Country lift and 20"_ Mazzi wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson 35"_ rubber. The truck has run a best of 14.7 at Rocky Mountain Raceway in Salt Lake City, UT. Pretty impressive for a 12-year-old lifted Powerstroke with over 230,000 miles on it.

This 2002 Ford F-250 7.3L Powerstroke has run a best time of 15.44 @ 86.48 MPH, at 6,000 ft elevation with stock injectors, no drugs, and 36"_ tires. Watching engine vitals through DiPricol Optix gauges the truck is powered by a DP-Tuner chip, Garrett GTP38R turbo with ported compressor housing and Banks Big Head waste gate actuator, AFE Stage II intake, MBRP 4"_ SS exhaust, 6.0L Intercooler, Terminator Engineering high pressure oil system, Diesel Innovations regulated fuel return, all pushing power to a BTS transmission cooled by a 6.0L tranny cooler. A set of Yukon 4.30 gears applies power to the Kumho KL78 tires in 325/60r20's mounted on MB Motoring Rocker Wheels. A Skyjacker 6"_ lift riding on Bilstein 5100 shocks handles the suspension and a Leer 700 Series Fiberglass bed cover tops things off out back.

Is that really a twin turboed Powerstroke? Yep, this 1995 Ford 7.3L Powerstroke is running a Terminator High Pressure Oil System, Crower connecting rods, Dynomite Diesel B-code injectors, Diesel Innovations Intercooler, H-11 head studs, Comp Cam valve springs, Crower push-rods, and a TE Twin Turbo system using a Garrett GT-38R and a Turbonetics TN76. It's been tuned with a DP Tuner F5 chip and uses a BTS transmission to get the power to the ground. It's riding on a reverse shackle kit and 35"_ Pro Comp AT's. Paint and bodywork was done by Joey Walker of Utah.

Wow, it looks like Ford guys are the quickest to the punch. We got more responses from Powerstroke owners for this section than any others, mainly because we didn't get any others.
