Sold my 6.0 ... Bought my first 7.3!

Well it was one of the harder things i've had to do, but I got rid of my 6.0 and bought my first 7.3 OBS.

Extremely clean and maintained, figured id throw some pics of it up here, get some opinions on it, and maybe where to go from here.

It has a TON of mods.

Stage 1 Injectors
Banks Intercooler System
ARP Headstuds
TS 6 Pos. chip w/ custom TDP tunes
CPR Fuel system
Adrenaline HPOP
Coolant filter system
Dominator 66 turbo
ATS trans
ATS 5 star TC
AFE Stage 2 intake
MBRP turbo back
IDM mod
and DIpricol gauges

150k Miles, original owner meticulously maintained the truck with a log book and over 12k in receipts in mods done in 2010. Since mods were done theres been 6k miles on the truck

Other than a Dana60 ... any ideas???

(I'll post better pics tomorrow, I literally JUST got home.)

I love the OBS! I don't think I would sell my 6.0 to get one, but I would own it in conjunction with the 6.0

Thanks,

Now it's time to work out all the little kinks that will drive me nuts.

Amazing how well that 6.7 pulls. Between this load and the 42' camper we tow, it always impresses me.

I'm interested in hearing a comparison between the two trucks. I'm sure the 6.0 was better, but Ill ask anyway.

Looks really awesome!

Ill need more time with the new truck to give a good comparison. And as far as stealing it goes.. I didnt. I generally find good deals but this one i paid top dollar. I paid 12k and im hoping its worth every penny.

As clean as it looks and mods done, and a record that good it would be worth every penny if its all accurate

I have a folder 3 inches thick with dealer logs and receipts from all over the place. This guy was extremely meticulous. So far im happy with it, except i took it for a spin around the block and it stalled on me. Looks like a cam sensor is in order.

12k is pretty good especially if the CPS is the worst of the problems in it.. i think you might miss the 6.0L.. but if you already have a 6.7 i suppose there would be no use for the 6.0
