6.0 all day long. I love a 7.3 to death but there not the best powerhouse out there. The VGT turbo is where it's at. If you asked tuned 6.0 vs tuned 6.4 then I'd say 6.4. It's amazing how the power gains of these engines just keeps going up and up.

my srl vs a buddies 02 7.3 with dp tuner on 140hp and i beat him pretty badly. and yes the power output as these truck engines keep getting more powerful is wild.

the 7.3 will get smoked. If it's a race to 500,000 miles, the 7.3 will win though!

Haha! So true. Which is why I will always have a soft spot for 7.3's.
