NEED INPUT! SHOOTING FOR 500-600 HP!

Doing research for my roomate. He had a guy come into the shop and wants him to build a 2002 7.3L. Hes giving him free range and a $20,000-30,000 build budget. They are going to deliver the truck on the 23rd and he has 3 months for the job. The customer wants reliability (not a daily driver though) and is shooting for 500+hp range. This will be his first build on a 7.3l to this extreme. I have a 2001 7. 3l so I'm a little more familiar with them, so he asked for help w/research. I need suggestions for a turbo (twin or single), injectors, HPOP, intercooler, Fuel upgrades, tunig, & any other suggestions. The block will need to be bored, i do know we will need to get rid of the PMR, so Forged or Billet? Headwork any suggestions? I'm guessing forged pushrods & heavy valve springs for sure. A chassy dyno and engine dyno are available, to test the end result. Any input would be appreciated. I will update later on how the project goes. You might even see it in diesel power magazine, that is one of the goals also. Thanks ahead of time.

I think I'd rather by a 6.4 with that extra 20-30k a lot easier to get to 5-600 hp.

Well they say a fool and his money will soon be parted lol. But a 38R for turbo or look on turbonetics.com they have some good stuff,6337 intake, methonal injection, propane injection, built tranny, forged rodes for sure, high compresion Aluminum pistons,bigger intercooler,tranny cooler,17* hpop,ccv mod, For tunes anything custom will work such as PHP, TW, Wild Bill etc... The list goes on of stuff you could do. Read around a little bit and you will find most of everything you need

Isn't there a sticky on here about power levels? Over on psn.com I think they might have a write up on a 500hp 7.3. All power to you but trying to build a 7.3 like that just isn't worth it
