Additional, how much horsepower can you get out of a 7.3 Powerstroke?
Diesel heads are buying them cheap, modifying them on reasonable budgets, and are making incredible horsepower with them. It's not uncommon to find a '94.5-'03 Blue Ovals with a 200,000- to 300,000-mile 7.3L under the hood churning out 500 to 600 horsepower at the wheels!
Further to this, why is the 7.3 diesel the best? Reliability The 7.3L International Power Stroke engine is considered by many to be one of the best diesel engines ever to be equipped in a modern heavy-duty pickup truck/van. Although there are a number of great things about this big diesel engine, it has gained such a following by providing bulletproof reliability.
Quite as, what is the best year 7.3 Powerstroke?
the best year is 2000(.)
Why was the 7.3 Powerstroke discontinued?
The 7.3L DI Power Stroke was in production until the second quarter of model year 2003 when it was replaced by the 6.0L because of its inability to meet California noise regulations, not the commonly believed emissions standards as it beats the current 6.7L Ford Power Stroke.

'94.5-'99 7.3L: 380 to 400rwhp Either charger can hold up to 30-35 psi of boost for a while, but 40 psi or more is asking a lot for a turbo that was originally intended to see a maximum of 17 to 23 psi.
According to TheDrivingLine.com, the 7.3 liter Powerstroke is reliable because its design is simple and only uses 6 bolts per cylinder. Another reason trucks with these engines are durable is that they feature a fixed geometry turbo and an oil cooler that is located externally.
Ford's historically coveted Power Stroke 7.3 engine was considered one of the most reliable diesel motors in the Ford truck series, with some owners clocking well over 500,000 miles on it with no engine work needed (except possibly replacing the HPOP–high-pressure oil pump).
From a reliability, durability or simplicity standpoint, the 7.3L is hands down the winner. When it comes to horsepower, drivability and meeting modern day emissions standards, the 6.0L has it beat. Ultimately, both engines have their pros and cons.
Ford rebuild kit is about $1100 and includes pistons, bearings, seals and gaskets - even an oil filter. Figure $500-800 at machine shop depending on what the heads need (valves, guides, etc). Then, add stuff like water pump, injectors, turbo rebuild, up-pipes, fuel bowl rebuild, etc.
