Mechanical 7.3

Since not many of you venture on down to the pulling forum I figure I would toss up a couple of pictures of the engine going into the pulling truck chassis I sold a while back.

Re: Mechanical 7.3

I don't mean to ask a stupid question, but isn't there something missing from each of those intake runners?

Re: Mechanical 7.3

how well do those intake runners work w/ the sharp angles? doesn't look to friendly for airflow, but i could be wrong.. just wondering

it's awesome that another person is willing to drop the money on the 7.3 to make it really run. i wish i could afford to swap to a p-pump, but it doesn't look like i will for quite a while..

I know what you mean.... there is still the plenum in the head so in reality its no different than the stock setup except it has three pipes feeding it instead of 1.

Re: Mechanical 7.3

There is very few of these setups out ther. Correct me if i am wrong they are all pullers right? I would love to see one on the strip. Is there any?

30K-150K is a pretty wide open ballpark and it all depends on what you think it needs to be able to do. For instance if you wanted an 8 cylinder billet Sigma pump that lists for about $17,000 - and you don't have injectors or lines yet....
