Keep the 7.3. My family has 3 6.0's vavle covers have been off on all of them. At 2K miles, 60K miles, ans 30K miles. Then again at 86K miles and mine will be off soon. We have 3 7.3's and valve covers have never been off. 2 have 160K miles and 1 has 50K miles.

Dont get me wrong,the 6.0 power stroke is a good motor.but you will need to stud it and a EGR delete kit.then she is a runner. the 7.3 is a good motor too
and thats what I like. but lets go off the map here and say sell both motors and put a 12 valve in her alot easier and cheaper.but what do I know

Do the egr delete and stud that 6.0 before you drop it in and I think it would be a good deal.
