2000 7.3l powerstroke supporting mods

Hey, ya'll. so my plan is to build a 7.3l powerstroke to 800+ hp. what kind of supporting mods should I get? does anyone have suggestions for injectors and compound turbos?

Thanks, Kyler

Your first post. I bet you didnít even search. Your googlfu is lacking. You should have searched first.

Visit swamps and give them 15-20k for their built engine.

DIY? Tear motor down, machine it, rods, girdle, heads, arp everything. Sticks. Tuning.

Donít forget a built transmission. 10k fully built, delivered, installed.

Edit: For stupid power - donít go with a 7.3. Go with Cummins or stick a dt-360 in your sd. Again, you should searches. Your question is loaded to the gills.

Cheers and welcome

You want that much go with a 6.4. You can kiss reliability goodbye, cause its a 6.4 though. Although, don't expect to get a ton of trouble-free miles out of an 800hp anything.

Just do a mild street build 400 hp 7.3 is a fun truck you will be around 10 grand for parts that includes trans turbo injectors tuning fuel system.

Re: 2000 7.3l powerstroke supporting mods

Sorry bro, i've been searching, since the age of 13-. I've been studying for the best. I'm going for the best, is why I ask. I was honestly just wondering if anybody on this forum has ever built a 7.3 and what they kinda think is the best. Not only that but Dodge is crap. Maybe it's just an opinion but I don't care for Dodge whatsoever. Also, you might think a 7.3l with 800+ hp is a stupid build, but some people still don't realize the potential in them old "dinosaurs".

Re: 2000 7.3l powerstroke supporting mods

Well I tell ya what... if youíve been searching for that long, you have failed...

If you did search, you would know that the 7.3 has many restrictions and takes a lot of money to overcome.

Why would you hate on dodge? Is it b/c of brand loyalty? If that was the reason then itís not a very good one but sure, your opinion is your opinion. Just an FYI, 5.9cummins takes half as much to make twice hp as the 7.3. The fuel system is far superior and the straight 6 with the longer stroke produces more low end torque.

Everything takes money and you can make this pos 7.3 a beast and thatís your option and your right to do so. All the sob on this forum know the potential of the 7.3 and also the short comings of it as well. It can be done but again, apparently you didnít search enough. You need to go back and read my first reply if you want power from a 7.3

Re: 2000 7.3l powerstroke supporting mods

Its hard to beat the torque of an inline 6. Lest complicated and less moving parts to break... Do a cummins swap if you're going for insane power.
Swapping a CAT C7 would be pretty cool too....

Depends on your budget... If there is a will, there is a way. Its just the logistics and funding behind it...

95 Auto. 4.10 gears. SCLB. Stock besides Baby Swamps Injectors and TS-6 chip with swamps tunes. AFE MaxFlow. Glowshift trans, pyro, and boost. 6.0 IC KC TP38R. Converted EBPV to exhaust brake.
