I would say do the turbo for now. Injectors will put you close to 450-500 range with hybrids or something. THer are guys running that set up on stock pmr's and most will agree thats about as far to go and even then your pushing it. I would do the turbo and do rods and injectors at the same time. THe thing about the rods is if one breaks... your screwed. You've just installed a window in your engine. So The safest thing would be rods first then you dont have to worry about it as you mod it up.

I've heard 400-450 is about maxing out the rods. There are people running 500 but they probably dont last long. Do some looking on the forums there is a ton of threads on hybrids turbos ect. I have no idea how much rods are installed but im pretty sure just the rods are 2k. Injectors are around 3k. You should probably run big oil to run the injectors. Stealth pumps are about 2500 bucks but there is a new oil pump out that runs hybrids pretty well i think its called adrinaline pumps on the dieselsite.com. Thats all prices for parts as for instalation not even sure how much. im pretty sure the fastest way to change the rods is to pull the engine. DIRK might chime in later he is a hard core 7.3 guy who knows his stuff so he might have some suggestions for you.

do the 38r and get a tw or dp. See how you feel about that power level before you decide you want to jump to 500.

Yes definatly for the money you cant beat it. Hybrids are my favorite anyway you can turn them up and down tow with them and make good power and you dont need alot of oil. Sure some make more power but the arent that useful. Have you looked into an H2E set up?
