02 7.3 Powerstroke engine overhaul

Hey guys i am planning on doing a complete engine overhaul in my powerstroke this fall for no reason other than i need a project in my Diesel Technicians program and i was wandering if anybody knows where i can get a complete performance overhaul kit for my truck. i dont exactly no what all kind of performance upgrades i can do on the motor in my truck but i want to do some internal performance upgrades. in the future i plan on doing a fuel upgrade, turbo upgrade, air intake upgrade, and everything else on the outside of the engine. so i need a performance overhaul kit. thanx for all your guy's help i greatly appreciate it.

Get some forged pistons & connecting rods, ARP Head Bolts and better Headgaskets. Might as well throw on a Fass and a bigger turbo while you have it apart.

you can get forged rods direct from forf iirc. the rest im not sure on. and you can probably get a better deal on rods aftermarket as well.

things to add if your budget allows:
adrenaline, TE, or SRP1 HPOP
fass and/or regulated return
turbo upgrade or at least a WW, perhaps a 1.0 or 1.15 AR housing
bellowed up pipes or at least brass donuts
stage 2 injectors and a chip if you were able to afford the hpop, turbo and the needed gauges!

good luck man!

I did my motor last year, I found a motorcraft kit for around 1200 dollars, it was very complete, down to the fuel system orings, every gasket on the whole truck, along with a caulking tube of gray sealer for the oil pan and intake manifolds. I put factory forged rods in it, and had it all balanced. I think I would have replaced the rods with aftermarket if I were doing it over again, as well as buying new heads, I hear you can get them for 7 something each, by the time you pay for all new valves, springs, and have some guides replaced, you are near the price of new ones. If you want me to I can try to find the link I used to buy the kit I bought? Other than that, good luck! Hope it helps you some
