7.3L Power Stroke Performance & Dress-Up
I am looking into purchasing a 9th-Gen. F250 Super-Crew, Short-Bed. The goal is to build a custom, show worthy, truck that runs on Bio-Diesel. I have always been a fan of displacement, thus the 7.3L Power Stroke seems to be the best.
My questions to you are relative to aftermarket engine tuning and dress-up. With regards to performance, I have seen the Banks tuning package, which should offer 125+ horsepower to the stock 210. Is there much else that I can do, maybe to get me to the 400-500 horsepower mark? Also, I have been left under the impression that Ford & Chevy Diesel V8 engines are derived off their popular gasoline blocks. If this is the case, will standard and aftermarket Ford valve covers, etc. fit the 7.3L Power Stroke? I would love to see a set of black, finned valve covers, much like the "Cobra" valve covers.
