ok. ya i dont know. one guy on here said to look at the dr. side valve cover and look at the number on that and it would tell me. but some D/A ripped it off. I still have not took out the check plug on the side of the block to look. has anyone taken a 7.3 out of an 00 ps? I would like to take it out and freshin it up studs top and bottom, new rings , hone, bearings, etc. or find a good 7.3 and do that to it so all i gotta go is the upgrades to the trans and put it back in.

im making a little over 500 and mine has PMR's, mine is rebuilt though and the guy that did it has been working on 7.3L's since he was 16, and he backs up his motor. Im shooting for 600 which i should be able to get after i get my injectors, hpop, and fuel system, he said that i will be fine with doing that too.

Because 175cc aint enough fuel for 500 horse. This expert builder of yours must have told you you have a 500 horse setup. Even with 100% nozzles your lookin at 430-450 without an upgraded hpop. What size is your compressor inducer?

You missed the 8" exhaust tip Bruce. Its good for an additional 100hp.

Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.

My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.

There is nothing wrong with the crank on any year 7.3...

The PMR's came in 2001-2003 trucks, yours is a 2000, you have Forged rods.

PMR's are "safe" to around 400-430. Some live much higher then that, some lower...

Forged rods and good tuning are good for about 650-700hp... Again, same disclaimer, some more, some less.

With 175 single shots and the rest of your sig your at 375-425 MAX... If "your guy" rebuilt your motor and left the PMR's in there, kick him in the nuts because he is retarded.
