Looking at the Fidelity site, it indicates that with a self-employed 401k that one can fund 17,500/23,000. However, it also states that one can also do a profit sharing contribution of up to $51,000.
No. You missed the part in bold below from the '2013 employer contribution limits' row:
Employers may contribute up to 25% of compensation3 up to a maximum of $51,000.
Total employer/employee contributions cannot exceed $51,000.
Any non-catch-up salary deferral made by the employee (up to the $17,500 limit) is subtracted from the amount that the employer can contribute.
