7.3 Build

Automatic? If so get a 6.0 trans cooler, upgraded valve body from john woods and maybe a upgrade torque converter with one with a billet cover. Gauges from autometer or isspro: egt, boost, auto trans, (hpop and fuel pressure are optional). Then 4" down pipe from diamond eye. The hydra from php, it's a 17 position chip. 38r turbo with a billet wheel. Intake plenum inserts, new inner cooler boots and bellowed up-pipes ( if they are leaking, most likely will be) from riff raff. T-500 hpop if yours is weak. Pis injectors: either 175cc/80% or 160cc/30%. You will need custom tuning to run larger injectors. I also recommend the FRX to fix the dead head in the fuel system. That should about use up all your money plus some. Since you have a possibility of having a pmr motor I wouldn't do much more than that. You can always check that to make sure. You can only get this much stuff if you do all the work yourself.

^ pretty much covered it , just add on's for the price range as actual builds tend to get pricey quick. I'd do some research into losing the spectre as well , good possibility of doing more harm than good with lack of filtration and possibility of dusting. Google spectre/diesel and read a few of the forums , doesnt look well......

being a 2001 he could have a diode trans so the extra power could shorten the life. diode trans need a full rebuild if it goes on you, just something to keep in mind.


EDIT: if its not a manual

Something that a lot of people kind of overlook, you should do the crank case vent mod. its about a 10$ fix, and it will save your turbo that you have now.

Actually , it does absolutely nothing to your turbo by venting back in. However , overtime the residue can build up in the boots and cause them to pop off easier under higher boost levels. Common mod ? For some. Beneficial to anything ? opinions vary. Smells like chit ? Totally
