Help with Pulling Truck

Just bought a 92 F250 5 speed, want to make it a mean pulling truck. I'm talking major motor work and all. Where do i start? What should i get done first. Not in any rush, want it to be a project. Any information would help. Located in Nj so if anyone knows any diesel performance places around my area let me know.

What class are you wanting to pull in. You have to figure that out before you start buying stuff.

Some pulling orgs don't allow motor swap that wasn't available with the truck from the factory.
Look into the rules very closely that you want to pull with.
Even then rules can change and leave you out...

The first thing you should do is check into pulling organizations near you. Do some resesarch into their rules. That will help you choose the class that will best fit you, and will guide you in what modifications you are allowed to make, and need to make to have a competitive truck.
