Something a bit different for an F250

Im looking into purchasing a newer 7.3L powerstrock 2WD Shortbed F250 sometime soon, and plan on doing something different than lifting it and throwing on some 20's.

I want to lower it, add some nice suspension components and make it quick. I want to be able to smoke all these Dodge boys running around thinking they are the coolest both on the strip and on the road track.

Does anyone have some links to any lowering kits, swaybar upgrades, big brake upgrades, etc for these trucks?

Also, what it the best way to get the most out of the 7.3L? I was thinking a full Banks turbo kit, big IC, propane and N20 injection. Is there anything out there besides Banks? That should be good for what, 800-1000 Ft/Lbs?

I don't think I want to go with air suspension...don't want to deal with everything involved. I don't plan on taking it off road or towing much more than a single car trailer.

Any ideas and links would be great.

Thanks

Silly powerstroker, speed is for dodges. I wish you the best in your conquest for diesel dominance. Sorry forgot to tell you, you can't get a shortbed standard cab. You might wanna go to www.dieselpowermag.com and search for "Stroked Lightening" and read up on it. this is the exact link http://dieselpowermag.com/features/ford/0511dp_rbp/

Banks is doing a duramax road racer, but it's pretty serious.

yea

that thing is crazy. Even though it is a dmax it should be awesome to see a diesel road racer.

Yeah, someday I'll do something similar (but gas) with my 73 GMC. Hopefully. In about 30 years or so.
