Iam new to the world of powerstrokes..I just received a 97 extended cab shortbed 2x4 7.3 powerstroke with 288,000miles on her in trade for an airboat! I dont d.d. the truck and would like to get her to run high 12's low 13's consistently! the truck is stock now besides a cai and thats it! My first addition was going to be 4" turbo back exhaust with a bully dog 6 poistion chip or maybe the edge? the next step is I was going to get some 238cc injectors followed by a garrett 38r turbo! as for now this was as far as i got on researching but if it helps iam open to running propane,nx, or water/meth! i have a buddy that has this setup on his truck he runs high 12's but with a 4wd! Any help and suggestions is greatly appreciated!! Thank you
x2 on not getting it done with those parts, etc...
What intake do you have on there now?
What I would start off with...(Specific company parts listed are only my .02 and I am sure there are others that are just as good or better and will work.)
Terminator 17* HPOP
Bean's Stage 2 injectors
Bean's or FASS fuel system
Gauges (Pyro, Boost, Trans temp, Fuel pressure, HPOP pressure)
Your right at about $5000 with those mods, be prepared to throw down another $3000 + when that much power destroys your stock trans.
So, give or take $8000 and your there... Just being realistic here, with the mods you stated your not going to get close to what you are looking for.
