650 rwhp?

Alright so I gotta pretty basic idea of what I wanna do but not sure what all it will take. I gotta 02 7.3l with pmrs so my first step is to by a "donor" motor. I'm going to rebuild that with some high end internals, balance everything port and polish. Thinkin maybe crower or carillo rods. Arp studs(internals aren't my expertise). But basically a biult base then some 238+ cc hybrids, 38r, regulated return, airdog, hpop upgraded, bts tranny, custom tuning.I know I am missing a bunch but that is why I posted. Any and all advice, words of wisdom is apreciated.

Is your goal 650? If so 238s won't get you anywhere close. Same with a drop in charger.

Give Jake Enos at Irate Diesel Performance a call...he can set you up with literally everything you need....injectors, t4 turbo and mount, rods, pistons, studs, springs, he has a full fuel system thats better then the airdog...he is the man to talk to. I will forewarn you though, 600+ hp is very costly in the 7.3 world...be prepared to throw down some change, I would also recommend not cutting corners because at that power level things go boom easily and you will spend a lot more in the long run.

Similar thread going on right now: The 600.40hp build thread - PowerStrokeNation

238's and 38R are a great combo for 450'ish RWHP. Going need a lot more fuel and air volume for 600.

You'll need something like this if you want a super solid motor. And i know Jason had more than $14k in it. Add another $3-5k easy for injectors and turbo, and you'll have a super running truck.

But thats also pretty much as far as you can go with a 7.3 motor internally.

You can have good power with a single that is properly matched to your injectors, a compound set up is a whole lot of work for these rigs and is a whole lot more.

Irate Diesel performance ?Power Stroke Performance

Give Jake a call, he can set you up with a turbo and mounting kit for a whole lot cheaper then anyone, mainly because he is the only one who makes a T4 mounting solution for these trucks. Tell him Byron sent you, and ask about what you will need. Jake is a great guy to deal with, might want to ask him about Chris' truck, he is putting down 600hp with a reliable daily driver, that is a blast to drive....If you say Byron and Chris, he will know who you're talking about.

I am just trying to help you get this done the right way, not to mention Jakes turbo mounting set up is cheaper than any other mount set up you can get, but is top notch quality.

Building an engine is not hard if you take your time and do it right...I would try to find a local machine shop and talk to them, if it were me, I would have the rotating assembly balanced and blueprinted and have them assemble the bottom end, from there you can put the studs, heads, injectors, etc in. It just depends on your comfort level with working on these...honestly none of the process is overly complex, but there is a lot that can go wrong.
