7.3L Powerstroke Crankcase Engine Girdle Bedplate from Hypermax, designed to strengthen the lower end of your powerstroke. This unique cast bedplate ties the main bearing caps to the engine oil pan rail. Prevents cap movement and fretting of the mating components. Similar to the 6.0L powerstroke bedplate design to tie the bottom end of the crankcase for the ultimax support.
Without this kind of added support the crankcase will fail in the bulkhead sections.
You will need to modify your oil pan to utilize this product.
No need to worry making HP with this upgrade if your going this far i would recommend steel rods and crankhttp://www.gohypermax.com/ProductDisplay.aspx?ID=878beebc-414f-4082-a240-5d921f61ca57
