You need a monitor, otherwise we're guessing.........Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.
I'll guess turbo sticking to start with.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

No way a 7.3 should compare to a 6.0 stock for stock. How many miles on it? How long have you owned it? You have the routine maintenance (fuel and oil filters) done on it regularly? And ditto on above, any monitors at all?

My truck has 70,000 miles and his 145,000. And all maintenance up to date. My truck
Is like drivin a 4 cyclinder Toyota to a to a v8 f150. My truck runs good and I get about 18
Mpg but not much power. It does have a little miss once an a while but only when fuel gets to 1/2 a tank or lower but above that it runs fine. Just has no power very SLUGGISH all around.

No smoke and 3 years. Thought it was just truck until I drove his 7.3. I had the ficm replaced about 2 years ago but still the same just wouldnt start when cold.

No tuner on his truck I assume? Otherwise comparison wouldn't be the same. Can you tell if the turbo is spooling up or not?
