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:

and with all ur doin ur gonna have to bprolly buy a set of head studs definatly- 800, main studs with a girdle- 1200, and a fire ring kit- 1100. thats on top of basically a complete motor rebuild cuz since ur gonn abe right there at everything and with that kind of power might as well be sure its gonna be right.

Way to represent the 7.3

Don't see many fully built 7.3s around.
