7.3 vs 6.0/6.4 coming off the line

I should take delivery of my 7.3 here in about an hour. EXCITED!

But to the problem. My cousin has the 08 with the 6.4. I know hes going to give me a hard time about how I have the 7.slow and he has the 6.go. My question is in a stock setup how badly would a 7.3 get trounced in a little friendly race. Also, what would it take to do the trouncing?

He is going to murder you. You could dump $10K into the motor and tranny and he'd still stomp on you with just tunes, exhaust, and intake.

Just race him everyday until something on his breaks. Your bound to win 1. Thats what I tell my buddy with a chipped 6.0 anyways.

Well, the 6.4 comes with what, 350 HP stock? And then there's the 310HP tune. It takes a whole lot of money to get a 7.3 to 660HP...

Basically. The only thing you'll have him beat in is lower payments, lower insurance, and lower maintenance costs.
