Need a new motor. HELP.

So right now I have a 93 ford 350 that has a 7.3 international motor indirect injection. She needs a new motor in her. My dad is giving me that truck because iv gone thro 2 already and im taking this one to college. It does NOT start in the winter whatsoever with this motor. Anywhooo. I want to do truck pulls, and actually do good! I want the best of the best, I was thinkin maybe a 8.3L Cummins or a 7.3L Powerstroke, I don't know. She needs a new paint job and some body work aswell, we are getting new stacks on her soon. I do NOT want a Duramax. My dad is also thinkin about gettin a CAT motor put in. What are your suggestions? Iv found great deals on bother the powerstroke and the cummins. I just don't know which one or if there is a better one I want. I know they have been havin problems with the new powerstokes and the new cummins are a pain to get parts for if they break down. Please help.

Get a hemi. My bro has one in his toyota - he has 383 HP. V-8 5.7 L and you can toon it up more with a special microchip that adds like forty more horse power.

I don't like Hemi's their fuel milage is terrible. And 5.7L isn't that much. V8's also suck down fuel. All motors you can toon up with a microchip too ;]

I don't know much about engines, but I do concure on the hemi, don't do it. Was thinking about putting one in the jeep, but heard too many bad things about them, ended up with a 350 small block. Maybe look into a big block engine? Chevy big blocks start around 350 hp and go up to 720 hp.

It all matters on how much you want to spend I suppose.

i do tend to agree with QHDragon. Big blocks are good too. If you want a good one, and depending on what you want to spend - look into the Edelbrock big blocks, they're a great company and its a really good brand.

Gas motors will blow chunks in truck pulls. It is cheaper just to go buy you a new 7.3 they run 2 or 3k and then go from there..

Lol, don't get a Ford - they suck, but that is just my opinion, if you think they're good than go for it

Well, fords are worth more than chevys and dodge isn't even American anymore...

Besides, put the motor or a newer version of it back in it, your vehicle will be a lot more stable when you go through your upgrades.
