I was looking at one for sale today. Was wondering if there is anything to watch out for as far as the motor or anything else prone to breaking down on that year. I'm thinkin that's the first year they added the turbo? How does this year stack up horsepower-wise to the later models?

I think 94 was the changeover year for the diesels. So you would want to verify if it is the powerstroke or non powerstroke. The turbo was around for a couple of years as an option before being standard with the powerstroke.

Horsepower-wise, they will be down compared to the latest 7.3's, as they are not equipped with an intercooler. They still have monstrous power though

Hopefully someone else will answer your questions with more precision.

So what's the difference between the power-stroke and the regular diesel? Just the intercooler

powerstrokes are direct injected and do not use the old mechanical injector pump. lots of easy computer trick and bolt-ons for tons more power from a powerstroke. a 15 cent resistor will get you 20hp more at the wheels on a powerstroke...basicly does what shimming of the old pumps did.

Like 70spoiler said,the 94's were IDI. They were powerful,but not like a powerstroke. The main part of the engine is still a Navistar.

A friend of mine had one. The only problems he had with it was with the torque convertors. He kept{3} blowing them. He moved up to a SD.
