My 450 HP 7.3 build
Well after doing some homework and the toss and turn on a 12 valve cummins i dumped some money and devotion into my 02 7.3L XL CREW CAB LONG BED. the story behind this truck is that it was an older beat up work truck. the truck has 225k on it. I recently started overhauling the entire truck. coated the entire frame with a rubberized coating. new bed, tailgate, new fenders and some other small stuff. the roof had been pushed in a little bit and the braces gave out. so i cut them out and built new ones to replace the old. at the point in time i needed to replace the fuel injectors due to they were missing on 2 cylinders. and now i have done some homework and made a couple phone calls. I called over to FULL FORCE DIESEL and spoke with Matt over there. he and full force were awesome to work with and i can promise you it wont be the last time i deal with them. after a talking with Matt we went ahead and priced out a small performance build for my 02 to get started.
here is what i purchased to get going:
-AFE pro dry stage 2 cold air intake
-MBRP 4" straight exhaust, no muffler
-Stage 2 160cc Single shot Full Force Injectors with modified nozzles
-TS performance 6 position chip with gearhead custom tunes
-94-97 Adrenaline pump
-Regulated return (retains fuel bowl)
-Edge Attitude CTS module
-and a pyrometer to go with the module
Estimated about 450HP
Parts should becoming in within the next few weeks. then to break dow the truck and get the parts rolling.
i plan on also doing a nice torque converter, valve body and a upgraded compressor wheel for the turbo.
Stay tuned for the build. will try to have as many pictures as possible
