Default Reliable 450 hp?

Hi all, I've got a 2002 f 250 with 403.xxxkm on it and number 3 and number 8 cylinder are missing. I'm going to rebuild it and put a little bit of power to it. It's got a 4 inch mbrp turbo back and a tymar intake 6 speed tranny and a super chip tuner. I want it to live for another 400,000 km and I was wondering what you guys would do to get 450 hp and still drive it every day?

I know a guy that has a 1998 7.3 motor laying around could I use the rods out of it? Or are they different? Any recommendations on company's or injectors and custom tunes? What tranny upgrades would I need with a standard?

The rods are the same in both. Call up irate diesel, Jake can set you up with everything you need. He sells full force injectors, makes his own turbo kits and fuel systems. For tuning I would look into gearhead automotive. You will need a church that will support you driving style and what you do with the pickup.

Would a 38r turbo work for 238/100?
