Got $3500 to spend - Want a stable 400/750lbshp

Looks like I need to do injectors on the my 01 7.3. It has 175k on the clock. I love this truck and plan on keeping it for another 10 years, but I figure now would be a great time to "upgrade" it. I would like to achieve 400hp/750lbs+ and have it be available if I was towing 12k pounds or running around town. The truck is fairly stock. The only mod is a K&N filter cone on it because the 6337 is not a CARB certified solution. I had the transmission rebuilt about 40k ago and I had a billet converter and modified valve body put in knowing this day would come.

I was thinking 160/30's, Gt38r and a Hydra. Anyone have other thoughts? 205/80's maybe?

Mine is a 01 also. I got full force 180/30's, kc38r stage 2 , Cnc hpop, hydra tuner with jelibuilt tunes and a 4" exhaust and couldn't be any happier. Great setup. I also daily drive mine and occasionally haul a 35' travel trailer.

Gauges, exhaust first

Then turbo and injectors

The stock turbo really doesn’t do well past stock injectors.

Trouble is if you run 160/30’s hard they can still tear up an auto.

If they didn’t replace your half spline forward drum when they did the rebuild it is now the weak link.

It typically doesn’t like over 350hp. If you drive easy you will probably get some life out of it.

That being said, 160/30’s and a turbo upgrade really wake the truck up.

I would recommend unlimited or full force 160/30’s

And either a garret 38r or kc63mm journal bearing turbo with a 1.0 turbine housing.

The journal bearing unit is more reliable and lasts longer.

Plus if it needs a rebuild it’s 70$ instead of a minimum of 400$

@kbrennan

shoot me an email to [email protected] and we can discuss. I'd say call, but chances are I usually dont have much time to answer and the voicemail is full again, so email is best to get a hold of me. I need to hire another person just for this and really knows the 7.3L platform well to help answer tech questions.

Double check to see if what rods you have first though. '01 is hit or miss with forged rods to go with larger than 160cc injectors.

I have the KC 63/73 journal bearing turbo and it runs great with my 205/30's. It spools fast and my egt's are comparable to stock injectors loaded or unloaded.
