Ford f250 "Custom Built"

Hi Guys, I'm A new member here! And I will be doing a lot of posting on here, if thats okay. I work on top end hot rods all day long and I do custom paint work, I love my job it's awasome! there website is: memory lane classics! Okay with working all the time now it's time for me to re-do my 1997 f250 4x4 truck, I have always love diesel performance and for pulling trailer and stuff it will be a great help. This truck will be all re done and all new when we get done with it, from drive train to interior to paint work. I will post pictures of this build as we get started on it.
The Performance end of it, I'm thinking of ATS? I want power to have fun with it but something that will last and pull a house! say like 500HP new turbo maybe twin turbo? Do they make a good set of heads for the 7.3? (also looking at new upgraded fuel package? any good ideas? and bigger injectors? some people say 75hp? or 150HP? I still want good fuel mileage! i think of going with ATS with 90% of there parts maybe nicer heads & aluminum intake, And few other things? any ideas let me know! and what about suspension I'm looking for nice shocks that look good and you can see them, Fox Racing? But i don't know if that suspension would work for towing trailers?
I will be doing some custom fabrication to make the truck look like a new one. I'd like to use the gril and lights and that fender side air intake, I think that would look cool! and the gauges from a new truck too maybe seats but re do them to go with the custom interior that I will be doing in the truck. Any help or good ideas would be nice! Maybe when this is done I can get this into a magazine!

look for other company's besides ATS, they are way over priced and treat there customers like crap. look into wide open performance, beans, swamps. they will be able to get you anything you would need for your build.

Good luck..it isn't easy,...but lately it seems that if you have a pretty paint job, lots of chrome,...and do a hack job on everything else....you may get a feature...

With your skill set it should turn out quite nice. Post lots of pics of the work in progress. I find the fabrication part of it the most enjoyable to watch. Giver hell and good luck with it all.
