02 7.3 with PMR's more then likely

To make big power, which would be the best/cheapest route. High po rebuild of the 7.3 for strength and big boost, or a cummins swap?

A **** load of horsepower. Its my daily driver, but it doesnt mean I dont want to it make a completely useless 700hp. Or something to that effect. I tow nothing, I dont wheel it, and its a lifted crew cab. What else am I going to do with it, other then smoke out ricerockets and generally annoy the populous?

get a girdle a set of forged or chromoly rods head studs and have fun with BIG OIL and BIG FUEL and you will get what you want out of it and with good tuning you can have 700hp and tune it down for DD and up for rice rockets

there are pmr trucks running around with "safe" 450 horse..beans is the company that seems to be ontop of the pmrs..I plan on doing a turbo and injectors but also plan on geting it lived tune to be as safe as possible..if you want over 500 then you need to put forged rods in.

So all the engine needs to make over 450-500 pwnies is forged rods? I think a rebuild is in my future, truck already has about 230,000kms on it, if I need to replace rods, might as well refresh it.

New question, and its my thread anyways, so I can do it.

What would an engine refresh run me, parts wise, obviously labour is subjective.

keep your stock engine, buy a pre PMR engine, build the snot out of it, and drop her in.

Probably the best route. Anyone on here done a high HP build on a 7.3? Anything I could check out to get an idea for parts I need to buy/upgrade?
