Ford 7.3 Powerstroke History
Specifically, the Ford Powerstroke diesel engine is a combined effort of Navistar International Corp. or International Truck And Engine Company and Ford Motor Corporation. The first ”Powerstroke” engine was a 7.3L Turbo Charged monster introduced in 1994, used in the F-series trucks and Ford Econoline vans until 2003 when Ford replaced it with the ill fated 6.0L diesel motor.
The Powerstroke is also called the International Harvester IDI [indirect fuel injection] engine. In reality the 6.9L and 7.3L engines came from the same family, it was when Ford introduced the 7.3L engine that the moniker ”Powerstroke” was attached. Other than the size difference in cubic inches, the 7.3L engine has direct fuel injection.
The Powerstroke is a legend of sorts, called the 444 by international, the meaning of which is the cubic inches. 7.3 liters times 61.5 cubic inches [there is 61.5 cubic inches in a liter] equals 448 [cubic inches], when rounded out it comes to 444 cubic inches which is a tremendous engine.
Torque is the power figure truckers use to rate an engine power. Ford diesel engines produce lots of torque by nature, and the bigger the engine is in liters or cubic inches, the more torque it makes. Being a legend, Ford truck owners expect a lot out of their Ford 7.3 liter engines. One of the things we notice is that most people who own a F-150 ford truck, an F-250 Ford 3/4 ton pickup truck or one of the Ford F-350 and up Super duty trucks.
