I guess that doesn't answer your question. Your big HP 7.3 guys are in the high 700's with nitrous. There are very few. Over 15k invested in mods on a motor that could blow any minute, and would be lucky to run for 100,000 miles.

Any better?

Right now the bar seems to be around 700 hp with a lot of work. It will probably get higher and higher.

If youre talking about without building the bottom end it depends on what year engine. 94-2000 will stand about 500 rwhp 2001-2003 will take 400 rwhp before breaking a rod and puttin a window in the block.

If you can call it a powerstroke I think the limit is 1500hp and somewhere in the nieghborhood of 2000lb ft. It was the v-pumped powerstroke that had about $100k in the motor I guess it has been clarified that it was a v-pump, not a p-pump, off of a mack truck v8 diesel. So it's an easy 1500hp provided you have $100k burning a whole in your pocket

Actually solid rumors around here put the price closer to $150K. It pushed 1500 hp, and was in the 1800 tq range, at the flywheel. Totally non streetable set up. Mechanically injected, two huge turbos, and over 100 psi boost.

Here a some pictures:

It has four tires looks streetable to me $100k or $150k either way it's a @#$% load of money to spend to make that kinda power with a "powerstroke."
I think Zane from wideopenperformance runs at or over 100psi with his twin turboed powerstroke.
