Re: Might be trading truck want some opinions

As much as I love the 7.3L, it sounds to me that the 6.0 trade is a no brainer.

The 6.0 has less miles than your truck, has more options than your truck (power everything), the body isn't rusted out, and will respond better with just a chip than your 7.3 will.

Don't get me wrong I love my 7.3, but I think in your situation I'd be making the trade and never looking back.

Early 99 F-350
4" lift on 33's. Daily Driver/ Plow truck.
Swamp's Gen3, 300/200's, Tuning, 76mm Sledgehammer. BTS. Fuel system, ARP's, P-Rods, 910's, and a few other things. Stock Block.

Re: Might be trading truck want some opinions

Of course the 7.3 is the superior motor, but it kind of depends on what your end goals are for the truck. With the newer one you'd be getting a nicer interior, less miles, a dana 60 front axle, and a motor that puts out more hp with tuning alone. I would prolly trade trucks and put a SCT tune on it and then leave it alone and enjoy the a/c and nice interior. But if higher hp than 400 is on your mind, get that H2E and a set of injectors and be good to go with your forged rod 7.3. Of course to go much more that tune alone on the 6.0 you would want headstuds, atleast I would : )
