Alright guys I know almost jack squat about the 7.3's other than the basic stuff but all my buddies have them. Anyways my one buddy has a 99 on 4" lift and 35"s and pretty soon hes planning to bump up the hp so to speak. From what he told me he's getting a new ats single-disk tq, shift kit, dp tuner, gauges, afe intake, and the biggest single shot injectors he can get (200somethings i think). He doesnt plan to get a new turbo yet but his stocker was rebuilt not to long ago. Anywho Im just curious how much hp/how fast his rig would be? If its anything like a cummins then I would think he would be running pretty hot with the bigger injectors and no turbo upgrade is that about right? Im just curious if ive got anything to worry about or not. Thanks ahead of time for the help

the turbo will die when used very many times anywhere from the 30-35 psi range. he needs to upgrade his turbo if he plans on getting on it. id say hed be better off selling that turbo while its good and getting a 38r or another upgraded turbo

He will want to upgrade it sooner than he thinks. And if he doesn't upgrade the High Pressure Oil Pump those massive injectors won't shoot all that fuel either. Hope he's gonna open the exhaust a little too.

that single disk TC will not like the extra power either... save the money there and get a built trans from BTS... and the stocker WILL die

Ya I forgot to mention he already has a 4" exhaust and he figures that when the tranny does go (though he thinks it will never go cause its a ford) then he's having the local diesel shop build him one. I guess he's got more stuff to do then he was originally thinking.

First off he should go with hybrid injectors. Then he won't have to upgrade the hpop. He will need exhaust, custom tunes, and he will need a turbo. He may also need a fuel supply pump.

Alright im reviving this thread from the dead. So my buddy called the local psd shop and his plans have changed a little he is getting a set of smaller injectors (200cc) and a duel hpop (from either airdog or fass?? I didnt think they made those) later this year and later this month a shift kit, dp tuner, afe intake, deepdish magtech pan, isspro gauges, and he is just going to wait for the tranny to go and then he's buying a fully built ats with the triple-disc. He's expecting he'll have about 400hp and is determined to compete with me from now on. Kinda like a hp war. Anyways im just curious what he's going to make? Btw there is a local guy claiming to make 800hp on #2 only on the stock motor with nothing but headstuds added with nitrous being sprayed on top of it too? Sounds like bs to me but then again i havent seen his truck but the local 7.3 guys are thinking hes god. Its a 2000 too btw. So it there any truth to his claims? Thanks again for all the help

WOW some very uneducated individuals.

Wonder how that 800 hp truck would run against my 600+ hp truck?

Lol oh you have no idea on the uneducated part. One of the guys i hangout with who is friends with the *800hp #2 only 7.3* told me I needed titanium valves for my cummins and that I could easily spool a 100mm turbo on the street. Its kinda scary really since they all own diesels themselves. Im pretty sure my dads 6.0 would probably suprise him

Alright well im reviving this yet again. It turns out that they were a little off on the 800hp 7.3 but not by much. It turns out he made 680hp on #2 only with 355 inj, big single turbo, headstuds, STOCK SHORT BLOCK, and a couple other little things. He sprays nitrous on top of it too to push him over the 800hp all on the stock block that is daily driven, sled pulled, and drag raced. Pretty amazing if you ask me

No matter what the other guy made

Your friend is still very uneducated with all the stuff he is talking about putting on his 7.3 and no fass or airdog does not make HPOPs
