Default 7.3 Medium Performance Long Block

I need some help. Do to unfortunate events, I might have to pull my motor. I really don't want to put my stock engine back in. Who would you go with, to build a medium performance long block? What would be the best combo's?

Wideopen Performance without a doubt, as for the combo on fuel and turbo that depends on what your needs are

Cool thanks, a friend of mine told me this was the forum to be at! I have Casserly 250cc/200% injectors, in the box. I plan on running S360/S480 compound Turbo setup, with the S480 under cab. I am familiar with the gas world. I grew up around alcohol,"Pro Mod," cars and want the best. I have no clue about the Diesel world though. Do to our record heat, I need something half way bolt and go.

Yes, get a hold of JDub on here from Wide Open performance and talk with him about what you are wanting to do. He will lead you in the right direction.

That would be real cool and a good experiance. I didn't even know that was going on. Any one doing Live Tuning There? Does any body load there primaries with Nitromethane/Alcohol off the line?

No one doing live tuning that I know of. You could always hit up some of the guys that do it(DP Tuner, Tyrant, DI) and see if they will be there. Lots of sweet rigs to watch.
