Full Build

hey guys i was wondering about doing a build on my truck and lets just say if money wasnt a problem what would be the best of the best and the biggest of the big to get this truck stupidly powerful. I know you could just go buy a 6.4 but whats the fun in that? The 7.3 will live forever in my book and was just wondering what it is capable of putting down with the best of the best upgrades.

Pretty much a fully built bottom end. And it all depends on what u build it for. its way easier to pick a hp range and build from there. thats my 2 cents

More fuel.
HEUI is good for what is it, but has limitations on the amount of fuel it's able to flow, especially for extended periods at high rpm.

Billet rods, billet or CGI block, fully ported heads and agressive cam, roller rockers and solid lifters, big compounds or triples, and a built mechanical pump. Would prolly only run ya, say....$30k to get started with buying the parts. Should put down somewhere well north of 1500, possibly around 2k hp once its tuned.
