It was increased in later years, but it wasn't all that much (235 vs 250). I wouldn't pass up a good one trying to hold out for that reason. Are you sure its a 5spd trans in that truck? Some of the VERY VERY early 99 trucks could get a 5spd, but it was dropped quickly and the ZF6 replaced the ZF5. If it is indeed a 5spd I would pass on it for that reason, as some had problems.
99 F250 PSD 4x4, 5" DIY exhaust, CCV mod, DIY intake, PMT1 with DP Tuner chip (stock/40/80/120), BTS VB, Suncoast Extreme Trans with SD43 converter, FASS fuel system.
Trail Rig: 95 Ranger on Kingpin D60/14 bolt/D&D Doubler.
Does it also have 525 ft-lbs? I am positive it's a 5-speed. It's a very nice ride. 102k miles, fully loaded SuperCrew Super Duty. What were the issues with the 5-speed? If any issues did occur, is a swap possible between the 5 and the 6? Thanks-
No, its not 525 lb/ft, it will be lower than that (490ish I believe). The 5spd didn't like to stand up to the higher torque ratings of the newer engines. A swap is possible, but if you are going for performance it would be worth your while to find late 99-00 truck. If it does have a 5spd that means its a VERY VERY VERY early 99 and will have a different turbo, smaller hpop (high pressure oil pump), smaller injectors, smaller intercooler, and a few different parts on the front suspension. Myself if it was a 5spd I would pass on the deal unless you can pick up the truck for a song and dance.
