I've got a 97 6 door stretched F350 with 290,000 miles. Used to drive every day now want to just use it for a rodeo hauler. During bodywork, paint, some frame work etc. I want to rebuild/or replace the engine. I've heard both sides of the story CRATE vs REBUILD. I'd like to know, if I'm willing to spend the money, can I get a bigger badder engine in this platform? I'm really looking for a serious hauler and screaming performance.
Driving an 03 4X4 Excursion 6" lift, edge chip, 35" tires on 17" wheels and last but not least another 7.3!

Reason: Added Info
You can rebuild your own with a good machine shop. Hardened crank and rod bearings, after market rods, fuel system, Beans diesel injectors and turbo upgrades, the list goes on...don't forget the transmission for added power.
