I am planning to pull my 7.3L and replace the oil pan and was curious what other items I should service / replace / upgrade while I am in it. Below is the list I was debating. I have a T4 mount with an external wastegate, but also have powered metal rods. Appreciate the feedback/insight!

- Oil Pan
- Low pressure oil pump
- Rear Main Seal
- Injector Cups + new Injector O-rings


Potential Upgrades?
- Valve Springs
- Hydraulic Lifters
- Push Rods
- Head Studs

The level knowledge required for your questions aren't sitting at the table passing on there tips for trimming an engine , you need to seek out a info. source and take your parts to them and compare to replacement parts ? If possible seek out local source and compare parts for your needs.. The Gov Holmes

I went fairly deep. I pulled everything apart and replaced most all gaskets. I didn't touch the rotating assembly (Crank, pistons, etc), but cleaned it up pretty well. I think I got it all. I did end up pulling the front cover to replace the gaskets. The old gasket was pretty worn and certainly not sealing very well.
