Common Rail Powerstroke

Here is an idea for more horsepower out of your powerstroke. Do you all think if you got rid of the Heui injection system and made a common rail injection system that you could pull a 1000hp like a duramax or a cummins? I know it would problably be expensive but there should be someone out there with deep pockets and the knowledge to make it work. Let me know what you all think.

there have been a few post between here and other sites. Pretty much saying that "someone" was working on one. However that is all the info/Rumors that have been said.

Unless someone knows something new?

Not quite the same thing, but has anyone else heard about the sled puller in the midwest who runs a P-pumped Powerstroke?

If it is successfully installed in a PSD, Dave's Snow White will probably be the truck it debuts in.

That sled puller's name is Ben Miller.... the truck is called Double Overtime.

There are some hood off pictures, and videos posted on the net, but I don't have the links at the moment.

It is a 7.3 block BTW.

I've heard something about using the high pressure oil rail for as a fuel rail, but that was on a 6.0

If the head can take the pressure, and some one will make injectors for it. Yea you could do it but, R&D are going to cost BIG $$$$$$$.

I would love to get away from the HEUI, that would mean i would have to go with cummins or d-max and thats not going to happen! If i'm going to spend big $$$$$ i would rather go with common rail than a p-pump cuz no limit to injection stroke!

-02 F-350 6spd, DP Tuner F-6, 300+cc B codes, 150 FASS, two custom s400's, BTS oil, dual disk clutch.
-95 Dodge 12V 5 spd puller
-Tow rig 03 FL-60 Freightliner QC by Sportsshassie, 300hp 3126, 6 spd allison, with propane and a TS chp
-97 ranger 2.3L 5spd
-06 F450 work truck with 11' IMT body
Big Thanks to DP-Tuner and Rosewood Diesel!

I don't believe that Double Overtime uses a P-pump. If that is the blue truck with the big Blue Oval weight on the front then it uses the pump off an E9 Mack.

It'd come down to more than just the common rail. I don't know, but I've heard the Dirty's got better flowing heads. Plus programming, plus everything else that adds up.

Whos to say if it would, but it WOULD cost you alot more than just starting off with a Dirtymax to begin with.
