I didn't realize 6.0 were that much more potent than the 7.3's

I pulled up to an identacle truck to mine yesterday except he had a 7.3. From what I could see he had gauges and once he jumped on it I heard he had an exhaust. He was a truck ahead of me when I decided what the hell and jumped on it too and just sligshot past him. He had a teenager in the passenger seat that stuck his arm out the window with a thumbs up. I only had my street tune installed. What would the looney have done It was bad enough as it was.

From what I've heard it's insane!!! But make sure you have studs first before you run the looney toon...just my 2 cents!

You dont need head studs to run looney. I run mine everyday with stock head bolts. Just dont dog on it all the time and you should be okay.

Yup, the 6.0's are faster, but my 7.3 doesn't lift the heads and piss coolant when I beat on it.

It's a fair trade IMO

Same goes for me, been running Looney for at least 2000 mi. and everything is fine so far (knock on wood). Try to cover the neighborhood in smoke whenever i get the chance.
