A chipped 7.3 runs way better than a stock 6.0 in my opinion. Way snappier off the line and all around better to drive in town as it gets moving quicker.

lets see a failed egr, blown head gaskets, a turbo that whines like a beech... haha j/k

the simple mods are all you need, intake, exhaust (or btm) and a mild chip. but if they chip/tune that 6.doh, you will be seeing tail lights....

thanks for the replies. Guess I need to start putting money away for a chip and guages. I already have the intake and exhaust. I thought it would have taken a little more. do the fuel system mods ie... regulated return and in tank mods help any for power or are they just supporting mods.

A resistor(10-5k) mod will make it feel stronger and only cost a couple bucks and time.

Heres a video from maintain.
Diesel Movies - I install a 10k resistor in the ICP sensor of a 2001 F250 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel.

I've tried the 10k and diode clamp mods I like the way the clamp mod feels but trans just does not shift right, 10k mod just don't like the lope in the idle.

7.3s RULE NO MATTER WHAT 6.0s arent horiable but I like the 7.3 way better then I liked my 03 6.0 truck was identical just a 6.0 engine and yeah it had a little more pep to it but It would struggle with my horse trailer my 7.3 doesnt even think twice its gone in a heartbeat with a 12000 lb load on it the 6.0 wouldnt want to even get on the freeway with the same load.
