Yeah I figured I'd that answer. My buddies got a 97 12v that he hasn't spent a dime on aside from a DIY filter and gauges and It's quick. He bought the truck and it came with a VB & TC in the trans. #100 fuel plate, tuned AFC, and cranked star wheel. Just kinda makes me jealous, that I spend $450 in tunes to get power an he spends nothing to get power. 370 injectors for him (similar Hp to stage ones) are $300 while stage ones for us are $1,000+. A compound setup for him is around $500 and I'm sure it's over $1500-$2000 for 7.3's.

But you gotta love the 7.3! No other engine ever like it. IMHO the 7.3 is the greatest diesel engine made to this day. A buddy of mine has a company work truck that's on 01 7.3, bin stock with 500,000 miles on it and it still runs good.

The easiest power in a seven three is a chip, intake and exhuast. After that the next significant jump is expensive ...injectors turno and tranny mods.
Stg1, vb not bad. 400/400, compounds, bts and all the supporting oil, fuel mods studs etc 15k+.

Yeah, tell me about it. I,ve gotta have close to 4500 in speed parts, and it still will be lucky if it laid down 340 hp at the rears. Look at a 6.4 spend about 2 grand and you get close to 600 hp. I think the thing about a good old 7.3 is simple, reliability !! They are simple for the most part due to the lack of emissions, and hold up well to abuse.
