Someone a lot smarter than me will chime in, but I think with the kind of power you want you may need to beef up engine components too. I also think you will need some new injectors.

Fully built 7.3's get above 500rwhp. You better have deep pockets!

Yep. Better have about $10-12G's or so. That includes the BTS trans to put it to the pavement. Parts only.

X2 on the Banks. I don't think their engineers are dedicated to Ford as they are Dodge. IMO.

You are gonna need a LOT of money to get anywhere close to 600 RWHP on a 7.3.

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.
injectors
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
Call the shop or email us if you need a detailed quote

Maybe 400 rwhp on a 5 grand to 7500 dollar budget?
Will the stealth pump be adequate for oil supply there?
What do you think Brian, you sell stealth correct?
