i second that motion... lemme know how all that goes and a video of it in action. ull prolly be lookin at about 600-700 hp and well over 1200 ft lbs of torque.

oh and at least 20-25 grand into a motor that im sorry to say will prolly not have a very long life if u drive it hard much. but it will haul some serious :censord:

Way to represent the 7.3

Don't see many fully built 7.3s around.
