Highest numbers for a 7.3?

What are all you guys putting down as far as hp? I thought there was a guy around here making around 800 on fuel alone. Is this correct?

No he is not making 1000, I dont think there is one 7.3 that still is HEUI that has broke 1000, if he was anywhere near 1000 I dont think hed be considering a cummins swap

What is it with everyone wantin to do a cummins swap? Ask a random stranger what it takes to build up a big cummins then ask him what it takes to build up a powerstroke, what engine do you think he will give the closest answer on? Theres no feeling of satisfaction building up a cummins. I'd drive a ricer for a week for a 700hp PSD, I'd piss on a 700hp dodge.

Just wait until you have replaced 3 sub 500hp 7.3's and tell me the though does not start moving to the top of your mind...

Are you sure? Maybe it just sounds like it's making 1000.
