2000 vs. '03

Is there really any HP variance in the different model years?

I drove my folks '03 that's in the same configuration as my '00 in my sig, and without the resistors "on" in my truck it totally blows my doors off, with otherwise the exact same mods... my dad wouldn't put a chip in to save his life...

I stripped all the extra crap out of my truck to make it lighter, like cheap plastic bed liner etc. and their's has a tool box in the back that's loaded with tire chains, 50-ton hydraulic jack, shovels, tools, etc. that has to weigh over 400lbs...

I'm totally confuzzled, the only thing that's mechanicly different that i can find are my 33" tires to their stock ones.

i've driven a 2k that was a slug and i cant stand it, mine stock was definitely noticeably quicker, now running a chip im much much happier well plus supporting mods. anyway i have an 02 btw. so i think its something in the pcm programming for sure.

My 01 6 speed is rated at 275hp and my Dads 01 is rated at like 250 IIRC, I'll have to double check Dads but his an auto which has a lower horse power number.

Thanks everybody, I was thinking that all years were pretty close to 250, but as you guys have shown me there's a huge variance... i'm going out to check the valve covers now.

I think all super duty 7.3s are 235

Some else that makes a difference. 99-01 had lock up converters
02-03 had variable rate lockup converters.

That allows them to shift smoother, faster, and lockup a lot earlier.

That may be in auto's, but all of ours are manuals.

Better work on your shifting then . . .lol . . . jk

We were comparing this the other day as well . . . I have an early 99 with obvious mods on it and the other two trucks were an 04 6.0 with 325hp/560tq and an 08 with 350hp/650tq on the valve covers.

It's nice having the oldest one, biggest block, hp and torque!! LMAO . .
