7.3 is better for it all

Before everyone has a chance to bag on the 6.0, I will say I have a 2003 6.0, it makes smooth power, it responded real well to bolt ons, its quiet, and I haven't had any major problems with it. It also gets 14 in town and about 20 on the highway, unloaded... More

6.0 has the more horse power, but 7.3 has more people willing to work on them (I know a lot of independants that won't touch a 6.0) and they have issues with the EGR and coolers on the 6.0s as Ford girl stated to the point that some have blown head gaskets with chipped trucks or trucks people didn't get the motor...
