welcome to the org! what you are talking about can be done, but there will be many challenges to overcome. one being the front suspension to hold it up; among other things. the torque will also tax the frame even at stock power levels.

The stock 7.3 idi has 180 hp and 385 torque from what i read you can make decent power with them but it takes alot of cash. turbo, headstuds to hold decent amounts of boost, you can have a shop drill your injectors and rebuild the pump to push more fuel.

I'd go Cummins for this project. Either the 5.9 or the litt 4 banger would work alot easier than a PSD would IMO.

Well the car is pretty heavy.....At first I was going to go with a dodge hemi out of a 04 magnum...I almost pulled the trigger on it till I got my truck and wanted to stay Ford....I did look into a 12valve dodge but I think the thing would be toooooooooo long for the car...Ill have to do some more checking...I have a friend with a 12valve in his truck and damn that thig will haul....I have a friend in the auto salvage business , He is keeping his eye out for a smashed PSD for me....The computers and the wiring I want to get from the donor truck....I guess we will see ...Thanks Matt
