Bringing 2000 7.3 to low 12s 1/4 mile

so i have been thinking of some mods for my truck.. is it possible to be a low 12 sec truck and still be able to pull whatever i want to put behind it?? and what mods would have to be on my truck to achive this goal? gtp38r? injectors? fuel pump kit? and high pressure oil pump? and more and will the stock trans hold up if i only beat on it every other weekend at the track? and fuel only mods if possible

you are on the right track i think, you will probly need an intake and exhaust and some custom tunes too. im sure there are some guys on here with some more info for you. the stock tranny will probly hold up for a while but how long is anyones guess

You are on the right track to a good setup. With good custom tunes you would be able to tow well also. However, a stock transmission is not going to take that kind of power especially when drag racing and towing. You will also be nowhere near low 12's.

I'd say to get near 12's in your truck you'd need some fairly big hybrids, a 38r may work but would be to small, need some supporting mods in the motor, and you'd need a fully built transmission. I'd say it'd take 5-600hp to hit 12's without cutting a lot of weight. You might be able to make a pass with your stock trans, but make sure you have somebody ready to pull ya off the track.

I watched a guy last summer lay down 473/959 in an 01 ec/sb. Mods were intake, exhaust, 238's, 38R, adrenaline hpop, regulated return, gearhead tunes and built BTS tranny. He had a 3in. lift with 35's and ran consistent 14.4's all day long. It takes alot to get a 7.3 into the 12's let alone low 12's.
