Why not the Adrenaline pump from Diesel Site? I hear good things about them and that is what i will probably end up with when my stocker goes

Any of you guys ever see that article in one of the diesel mags, donno if it was diesel power or 8lug, of the 7## hp 7.3? i think they said thats the most the motor could possibly make? simply because its impossible to push that much oil. HPOP cant keep up?
It don't matter what you build. Anything over 500hp is going to cost money plan and simple.

And I don't think we have seen the end of the 7.3 just yet. There are some people out there that will be doing some good things in the next year or so.

not to hijack, but it is kind of relevent. In the most recent issue of diesel power where it shows new products(p.33) there is a billet front cover from swamps. I assume this means cover to wahtever fuel inj. system being used hpop etc.. But it does mention something about twin common rail pumps. Is this the long awaited common rail conversion? Does anybody know anything about this.

This is old news. The information on this has been around on PSN for a couple months. But yes this is for the common rail conversion

if any of you guys are what do you have done


Why 500 horse? Why not 450? Just an educated guess, but you will be spending alot of extra dough on 50 hp. 450 is just some hybrids and a 38r
