it depends on how much money you want to spend, upgraded turbo is always good.

Ok Mr. Money Pockets, your not going to get a lot of power. It is an IDI engine, no turbo, no intercooler, mechanical injection pump. Really it was a great work horse but not meant to be built up and raced.

If your wanting to build a 7.3L I would look into at 97 and newer. As they are the Powerstroke engines.
