Whats the difference between a sd pump and a 6.0 fuel pump?? I would think that the 6.0 pump would flow more fuel

They are also not as reliable.
Why do you think the 6.0 flows more?
The 7.3 SD pumps last a very long time, and flow plenty. Run duals if you're worried about flow.

Because they produce more power so i figured they would produce a hugher flow rate

What do you mean "they produce more power?"

Oh. Yea but that's an entirely different engine. Different injectors, technology, everything. Idk what flow rates are and idk if I've even seen that date before.
If you want a 6.0 HFCM, go for it, but no reason to. Won't help you and you'll wind up replacing it before a 7.3 SD pump.

6.0 pump is a great pump to use if you want to maintain all the stock sensors working. It has the provisions for water in fuel and the vacuum sensor that triggers the fuel filter light. The number one reason these pumps have a bad rep is people dont take care of them. They ignore filters and the pump clogs and dies. They need a prefilter of about 10 microns to ensure nothing gets in them. The 7.3 pump can pump dirt and crap and be ok for the most part
