Re: 7.3l vs 6.4l
If it were me I'd stick with the good ol' 7.3. I love mine. My buddies all have 6.0's and 6.4's and yes they ride a little better and of course are a little quicker, but with the right amount of money anything can be made fast. I get the best fuel mileage out of all my buddies; 17 mpg
. They average from 12-15 mpg
in there trucks.
I also think my 7.3 tows better than anything else. I can hook up to pretty much anything and feel like its not even there.
The next thing I would worry about would be reliability. Anything can be made reliable with the right amount of money.
In the end don't let anyone sway you one way or the other get what you want.
My vote goes for the 7.3, but then again I like older women
