performance questions

I have a 1994.5 powerstroke its the first year of the real powerstroke and its very high milage and Im ready to hop this baby up and im talkin big. just had a few questions. This truck was my dads and he worked the mess out of it for several years and now its mine. We replaced the engine with a 7.3 out of an international bus ( which back in that day everybody said couldnt be done, and definately not by rednecks under the shade tree) I still have the old engine which only needed injectors, ( just got the new engine cheaper ) and I want to build it up really tough. I was wondering if I could get the stock injectors rebuilt and souped up to maybe 200cc, and where would be a good place that wont killmy pocketbook. Also I was just wondering about a good place to get engine parts pretty cheap such as pitons, rods, crank, Maybe a stroker kit>???? And I saw on a website where you can get performance heads all the way to stage 4!!!! was wondering if maybe I could get my stock heads machined out that much??? please help trying not to go broke.


Also if anyone knows where to get a cheap set of ten lug adapters i got a set of 22.5 big truck wheels to throw on it.

ok well your in about the same boat im in lol
i'm lookin at agkits.com for the motor rebuild and they do have over size pistons as well. dpp injectors sells a rebuild kit for injectors to make them 160cc for 250 bucks! or a set of already built for 750 with the exchange of the old injectors. i did also found a set of heads for mine cant remember where but they were about 450 a side if im not mistaken either way the rebuild process isn't all that expensive compared to the price of a new engine

Where would I go about finding a crank, or a stroker crank if they make one, and a high performance cam if they make one. also where do I get a 17* hpop?, what does the 17* mean? or would the dual stealth system work for these huge injectors?
