I bought the kit from northern auto parts. It's 1299 and has nearly everything except injector o-rings. The kit has big-name stuff too, like Mahl pistons and Clevite bearings.

Forged rods would be #1 on the list. Then have the rotating assembly balanced (crank and rods).

Yeah, you don't want to rush through it. I rushed my first 7.3 build, spent way too much, and it cratered a year later. Learning from your mistakes is time consuming and expensive.
