97 powerstroke

Hey guys,

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
D66 turbo
TW chip
S&B Intake
3" DP
4"-5" exhaust
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.

He's going to need way more mods and $$ spent to get into the 12's and live...around 600HP will be needed..plus the support mods..figure $15k +-

With the right tuning I think he could be in the 13's, would be pushing somewhere in the area of 400+ HP in an auto 4x2. I agree though, not sure the truck would make it much past 1/4 mile without the supporting mods.

I think you'd be better off getting an 08+ 6.4 and tuning it. You'd have alot less money in mods that's for sure!
