How much horsepower can a stock engine 7.3L f250 handle. Curious because if I started upgrading parts like turbo, intake, and putting a ts 6po chip in I dont want to go overboard with hp that the truck might not be able to handle.
being that its a 99 im pretty sure the rods are forged. I think it was the 01-02's that had the powder coat rods that are weak and known for breaking. What kind of mods are you talkin about. Like I said im new to the diesel engine, feel like im catching on quick and doing lots of studying on things....But, gotta admit Im still pretty clueless.
it doesnt have to be a total rebuild but if you tearin it apart its worth the money to just put new parts in but if you have a auto better torque converter and flywheel that can handle high horsepower, make sure your clutches, solenoids, bands are good. But jacob got it right.
