7-TREE JAM­BOREE III

Diesel World - - Dw News -

Last month we brought you the Power Stroke record list, which stated Matt Maier as the cur­rent horse­power record holder for 7.3Ls. Well, just af­ter we sent that one to the printer, the third an­nual, in­vite-only 7Tree Jam­boree took place. It’s an event that cel­e­brates all things 7.3L Power Stroke. With in­clement weather spoil­ing all plans to hit the drag strip, hook to the sled or run the dirt drags, the in­door chas­sis dyno was the place to be. Af­ter clear­ing 787 hp on fuel, T.J. Salokas’s ’01 F-350 would be hit with enough ni­trous to clear 1,300 hp (and just un­der 2,100 lb-ft of torque). His 1,305 hp is the high­est recorded num­ber to date for a 7.3L. Look for a full re­cap of the event in the forth­com­ing Septem­ber is­sue.
