keep 7.3 or keep 6.0

i have a 2002 ford crew cab 4x4 7.3 powerstroke, and a 2006 ford crew cab 4x4 6.0 powerstroke. The 6.0 I've had for a year, its been studded and deleted already, was like that when I bought it, and didn't know it. It has 112,000 miles on it. My 7.3 is a rough truck, had 243,000 miles on it, but runs super. Just needs body work. The 6.0 is flawless, except a payment. I know this has been brought up before about whats the best. But just getting your guys opinion which one to keep. I have a tuner in both, exhaust on both, I just didn't think the torque was all there with the 6.0, I just cleaned the turbo also. I just like the torque feel of the 7.3. I like both for different things. Which one do you guys prefer and why? If I keep the 7.3 I will get a bts trans, injectors, turbo, build my own fuel system, etc..., and if I keep the 6.0 I will get custom tuning, custom fuel system, and thats probably it. Give me you experiences with both modded, and driveability wise. I also feel the 7.3 may get better mileage but not really 100% yet. Thanks guys!

I'm biased, I havent owned a 6.0-ive got 284K on my 01 and yeah the body is the big issue for me. My cousin owns hus own shop and does bulletprofing probably 3-4 times a month. He tells me I'd be crazy to go to a 6.0, and nuts for a 6.4 or 6.7- the ole I.3 is just way to user friendly!

I have both also and both are stock pretty much. I prefer the 7.3 also. As you can see I have just rolled over 500,000 miles on my 7.3. I think the 7.3 is easier to work on and it's a little cheaper to maintain. I to like the wy the 7.3 pulls. I know according to the engine ratings the 6.0 should pull better, but I think my 7.3 truck pulls better than my 6.0 excursion. I would have to say I agree with the last guy who posted a response on this. Sell th 6.0 (getting rid of a payment) take that money and fix up the 7.3. I have keep my 7.3 in a like new condition, updated with glass panel navigation, rear camera and a remote start so it has pretty much what a new one has (almost).
