not sure what is if anything back east, but Empire Diesel in iowa may be your best bet. they have built a bunch of motors and know their stuff. great bunch of guys to boot.

Re: 7.3 build

There's a little shop in TN called Swamps Diesel Performance that's done one or two.

Although I guess those goons out in Iowa are alright too.
