the 6.0L is def faster then the 7.3L but i dont think you have a big chance of winning against a modded duramax or cummins... you will have to dump more money then they will to get to the same HP range

The ford is a great truck, but dollar for dollar you'll be outmatched by the others in a HP/TQ war. If you're looking to race or pull alot the dmax's and cummins are tough to beat. That being said I love my Ford.

Stock vs stock, I can get a pretty good lead on my buddy's 04.5 Cummins. My brothers 7.3 doesnt have a chance no matter the situation. My cousins LBZ is flat out quick.

Or you could have the best of both worlds and build yourself a Fummins.

The Cummins is an awesome motor, but I just hate the trucks. If I won the lotto, the first thing I'd do is slap a built twin turbo 5.9 in mine.

What about warranty?

Who gives a crap about warranty if you win the lotto? LOL That's the only way I could ever afford to do something like that.
