yes very practicle if you have $$$$$

injectors- i would say atleast 238cc 100% nozzle injectors
turbo options-modded H2E turbo, maybe 38r, s300,s400

Fuel system-beans, diesel site, Airdog 2 or diy. You will need all bigger lines no matter what route you go. and if go with beans diesel site or diy you would need dual 7.3l pumps

HPOP-Modded 17* or adrenaline should be good enough or i would go with terminator dual pumps

Engine-headstuds, valve springs, maybe pushrods- not really sure where to tell you there

tranny- Bts or manual dual disc clutch.

traction bars

custome tunes, tony wildman, gearhead, beans, swamps, php etc

intercooler- metal endtanks, or like banks

modded idm

3" down pipe 4" exhuast. **** rework firewall and get a 3.5 or 4 inch downpipe

its all about tunning, if you have a light foot, good economy tune, not 40" boggers you could see up to 22 mpg.
