What does it take to get a Supercab short bed 7.3L into the 14s? 1/4m track.

Just curious what it would take to get there.....

The truck is a 02 Supercab 4x4 shortbed. K&N intake piping with a giant Napa Gold tractor filter. Also has a turbo back 4" exhaust with straight pipe.

I have a buddy that has a lifted 6.0L with all the goodies done to it.... buts its a lot heavier than mine but goes mid 14s. Id like to be able to stick with him on a 1/4m run.

I do have a friend that owns a shop that does excellent custom Ford diesel dyno tuning.... so I have the tuning portion covered.

Thanks in advance.

Wow... thats a lot more than I expected. I figured injectors and tuning... I know the trans is kinda fragile but Im assuming by trans you mean a built one with converter. As for turbo... do you mean a whole new unit or internal wheel? Fuel.... new pump?

Well shoot... if I wasnt already building a single digit 1/4m car Id go for it.

I guess Ill have to just keep reminding him Id be willing to tow his 6.0L when it breaks. Hahah!
