Just at a quick glance the 7.3 had a black with silver letter "powerstroke diesel V-8" tag on the door....the 6.0 had a silver "powerstroke turbo diesel" tag on the door.
They also sound very different...7.3s have a lower note to them, while a 6.0 at idle has a high note to the engine rattle...also the 6.0 sounds like it is prepping for take off when the turbo spools.
