You will need a built trans.
Replace the powder metal rods in the block.
I really big hpop/duals
or a confederate diesel 8 cylinder p-pump for fuel.
and an s468 turbo.
I would do allot more than rods to the engine whiles its apart.
FWIW we had a customer come to us after spending 28000 on his 7.3 at other shops only to make 589hp tops. He wanted 600 so bad.
We looked at everything they did and they made nice upgrades for a fair price.
We told him they treated him fair and he was just done with the truck.
He couldn't sell it for what he had in it, and ended up parting it out.
I think about that anytime someone talks about souping up one of the most reliable light duty diesel engines/platforms on the street.
Bottom line is you really just have to want to do the 7.3 and not be bothered about cost/resale.
On the positive note, you have displacement, a great trans in manual or auto, an engine that loves rpm, and a great set of axles if you have the f350.
Also with the 02 you have a great deal of tuning options.
Good Luck with the build
