T444E tuning

HI

You have to excuse my English. I'm from Norway and I am restoring a 2000 f250 7.3 Powerstroke. I have a stock engine that I want up to 500 hp. Do you have any recommendations for how to do this right. Also need a recommendation for the right torque converter. I would also like to order a fabric New t444e and nead some information of who too contact. Other Things i have done is to removed the bed sandblasted the fram and primed it two times with epoxy primer and twice with offshore paint because of the climate. I bought everything new under the car and is now ready for installation. All purchased from Rock Auto parts.

If it was going to build a 500 HP 7.3 I would buy the following parts: Cold Air Intake (CAI), free flowing exhaust, custom tuning, 238/100 injectors or around that size, bigger turbo, and a strong transmission. A regulated return system and a healthy HPOP would be good to have. If you rag on it constantly head studs and things of that nature would probably be in order.

First off, you need to find out if your truck has forged rods or has PMR rods. Also post what parts you already have bought so that we can direct you in the right path. The post above is pretty right on in the basics of what you need

How to find out what kind of rods i have. Here we give the regnr on the truck to the dealer and they find every part on the vehicle. They don`t find any information of this.
Do i need to disassemble to find out this. Is it possible to give the vin.nr to ford dealer in the us and get the information ?.

IIRC If you have a 2000 7.3 then you have forged rods and your good to go. The PMR started in most 2001 trucks and became standard in 2002 and 03.
