6.0 In A OBS?

im getting my new truck soon (97 f350 rclb 4x4) and it currently has a 460/e40d in it and i have been thinking about replacing the combo with a 6.0/5r110 or 6.0/6r140. i know it would require lots of custom wiring and some custom fab. would it be worth the hassle? i could easily swap to a 7.3 obviously but i am wondering do the performance possibilities of the 6.0 out-weigh the 7.3? i have 2 super duties now, 1 with a 7.3/ZF6 and 1 with a 6.0/5r110. they are both f450 reg cabs with flat beds and water well service equipment on em (work trucks) and i have to say the 6.0 chits and gits (not just cuz the auto trans) seems like it has way more power! anyone have any opinions? im looking to build for twin turbos and high hp numbers here so would love some input! keep in mind i will be towing heavy too

As far as cost getting big power out of a 6.0 or a 7.3 will run the same money.

The 7.3 will be the far easier swap

I'm sure it can be done, but i think that'd be a electrical nightmare. And if your wanting a twin turbo heavy tower, i'm not sure i'd want a 6.0. There's no replacement for displacement, or number of head bolts/studs.

And yes, stock vs. stock a 6.0 will outperforma a 7.3 in towing/hauling/what ever. We hauled 250 bales of hay the other day with my brother's stock 6.0, except head studs. He said it felt like twice the truck his old chipped/intake/exhaust 7.3 was. It might've also helped that the transmission wasn't trying to kill its self like the E4OD was.
