Drop in a 5.9 12 valve it will cost a lot less in the long run. When it comes to adding power more power to most any motor the first 10-20 percent is rather easy, after that the more you add the harder it gets. Now lots of venders will be happy to sell you Injectors, turbo, intake, exhaust, programing, intercooler, and nitros with the hype that you can all all the numbers together to get what you want. The reality is each additional modification will not give you the same increase as it would if done alone to a stock engine. Are you planning to race this truck? A 800 hp 7.3 would not be a long life motor if you use the HP on a daily basis, When you see all the high HP numbers that people throw around you might want to look at the RPM the engine is turning to get that HP and ask yourself how long the motor will last.
So before I would advise on power upgrades, I have to ask what is the mission for the truck? Daily driver, Race truck, Tow monster, or just general money pit.
