Motor Rebuild

I have a buddy who has a ranch hand that accidentally changed his oil with hydraulic oil.... bucket was labeled wrong anyway gonna need a new motor. I am looking for some ideas for cheap insurance and power on a new one. The truck has one purpose- towing heavy. I was thinking a 38r with appropriately sized injectors? 238s maybe with 80%ish nozzles? Im not good with 7.3 injectors so correct me if need be. Anyway then pushrods and some tunes. Truck is a 2000 and has an upgraded tranny. Thanks in advance!

Re: Motor Rebuild

Stage 2's and a 38r would be more than enough if all it does is tow heavy. Throw a regulated return and fuel system on there with some good tuning then call it a day.

Back to stock for now.

Re: Motor Rebuild

That will easily put him at 450hp, which is more than the driveline can hold towing heavy.

Re: Motor Rebuild

A feller I know has 38R and AC injectors. It is a tow BEAST! He loves it. It put down 409hp on the dyno. I don't know if that is enough power for you but I thought I would throw it out there.
