You are correct, I should have explained "Canadian Values" it's a combo of dollar difference, price points at the dealership for parts and labour cost here as well as tax infrastructure and shipping. Generally parts here are twice what you pay, e.g., glow plugs $25-35 per plug. Think Clay at Riffraffs $10.00 per. OBS UVC harness here $75.00 per (for two cylinders) Clay is $39.00 per. Dealership shop rates (and others) are $120.00 to $145.00 per hour, it adds up quick and taxes here in BC are 12% on parts and labour.C'mon now, there isn't that much of a difference between USD and CAD right now.
your dollar is back on top of ours now, we are at 91cents currently, but we do pay at least 100% more for parts, which is why many of us do not buy anything from Canadian shops (an anomaly, BD sells turbos way lower then I can find in the US).C'mon now, there isn't that much of a difference between USD and CAD right now.
I would take a Bullet proofed(head studs,erg cooler[aftermarket or delete], oil cooler) 6.0 over a 7.3 SD any day.
They make MORE power STOCK than a fully chipped OBS with supporting mods
And also are FASTER even though they average 1000lb MORE than the equivalent OBS
thank you. between my own experience with 6.0s at work and what i've been told by diesel experts, im ready to make the jump.I'd do the 07 in a heartbeat. Much nicer trucks than early SD or obs trucks
