Is this a real question?
I'd keep the 7.3... but that's just me, and the mileage on yours is simular to what is on mine... 220k, 195k, 250k, L to R in my sig pic...
In my opinion, if the body of the truck is in nice enough shape, and it's not got a list of needed repairs as long as your arm, keep it... but I'm a big fan of K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) and the 7.3 is a reliable, proven, reasonably simple, reasonably easy to work on, and there's tons of them out there.
From what I'm hearing, I'm gonna keep my 7.3's for as long as possible, and in about 8-10 years when the '11's and '12's are on the market for low dollars, then that's what I'm gonna be going to... the 6.7's seem to be turning out to be quite a motor, but I'm with-holding my conclusions for a few years yet.
