Big HP Number 7.3 guys Post HERE!
wondering what its going to take to build my 97 7.3, Whats the weakest link? where does a guy start on a build? Im looking at maybe aiming for the 400hp mark, then maybe 500 mark, then maybe 700+hp mark. Alot of guys have had success building these motors with BIG numbers, what has worked for you?? I know i cant dive right into the 700 mark right now so whats the best way to build up to it? sky is the limit! whats a realistic Fuel only number VS spray. etc.
PLease dont post up on here telling me how expensive its going to be or reply saying I better have deep pockets, thats not the point at all, If money was an object I wouldnt own a diesel truck period. and please dont post up saying to just buy a cummins or Dmax or a new truck, If I wanted easy power I would go buy a 40k truck and throw a tune on it and id be done, But ive got a 5k truck with no payment that I would like to build, It may take a few years but the goal has been set, Now just need a little help building a game plan!
