This is my first diesel engine rebuild. I am looking to get a good amount more power. I have no idea where to start with finding gaskets, injectors, hpops, fuel systems, and all of the other performance parts that will add power. It is a zf5 manual, will be installing dual disk south bend street clutch, after the rebuild. Need ideas, tips, suggestions, whatever will help, please.

More air in + more fuel + more air out = good amount more power. Only limitation is $$$. Cost of getting to point of assembly, assuming your doing that, is not inexpensive.

Main thing is everything needed to make more power needs to work together to maximize power gains. I would recommend researching and then talking with several reputable diesel performance companies. HP gain is directly related to $$$. Set a budget and they will be able to give you some options. And if you get it all in a package you might come out a little better on cost.

Oh, I will tell you from experience. You would be wise to factor in to your budget a 10% - 20% cost over run. And if you're married make sure your in good standing. And tell her the cost for your rebuild is twice what you plan to spend. Then hopefully you can say...Look how much $$$ I saved honey!
