john wood valve body, 6.0 powerstroke trans cooler a must, and torque converter if funds are there. I have heard the modified 6.0 converter is the best for a stock 7.3 transmission, no pump mods needed.

NOT SO MUCH, THEY MODIFY A 6.0 CONVERTER TO FIT A 7.3, 6.0 CONVERTERS ARE RUGGED AND WORK WELL.

The modified 6.0 convertor is a tripple disk, and hp wise Im sure its good for at least 500hp. The valve body is needed, and it works wonders I hear. No front pump mods are needed with the 6.0 convertor, the aftermarket convertors need the pump mods.
