Question Is it possible to build a streetable 600hp 7.3?

My buddy has a 6.4 that is putting out 550hp ( dyno ) and id like to build a 7.3 that will out run it. Is it possible to build a 7.3 that puts out 6 to 650hp and still be streetable? If so what all parts do i need? I just bought a 99 f350 Early model iv got a guy that is building my auto tranny. I know ill need injectors bigger fuel pump hpop and turbo but will i be able to run the stock bottom end being that it has the fordge rods? Im just trying to get a Round about cost. I have thought about putting a super charger on to help with the turbo lag also.

I would skip the supercharger if it were me. Instant boost down low is hard on the bottom end of the motor. Put a single on it and be done. Csipsd has what I would do listed.

2002 F-250 XLT 4x4 offroad extended cab short bed
2000 model 7.3L diesel with forged rods
5in turbo back exhaust, 6637 filter, backup camera, gauges, DIY boost fooler($18.94)
NOW delta force (sniper) tuned by me!!!

Read my signature. I still tow with mine and it just ran a 7.53 in the 1/8th to back up the power. I use it all the time hauling lumber and taking the kids to school. The bottom end is stock still, tuning is a huge factor in keeping them in the block.

As stated yes it can be done...question is what are you planning on using the truck for, have you ever driven a truck anywhere close to this HP and do you have $20k+ that its gona cost.

Lots of time and $ just to beat a friends truck....

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

Dealer for: Full Force, Tymar, BTS, Icon, Pure Performance, TW tunes, just to name a few.
