Not another teen thread...
Okay, as a previous long time member of performance, automotive forums, I can understand where everyone starts to come unglued when you ask questions like “what do I do first? K&N filter or under-drives?”
That being said I know ZERO about diesels, other than if Ford didn’t make one, I would never own one. I was told that the 7.3 was the way to go for over all power, with the newer motors obviously making more initial/stock power.
I was also told head bolt, egr cooler, and oil cooler horror stories with the 6.0, and terrible fuel mileage with the 6.4.
I was informed that the 7.3 however had the weakest transmission (automatic)of the group.
For the seasoned guys/girls what would you do if you had it to do over? (price of vehicle, and personal preference on looks aside) (cause everyone knows the 99-04 body is drop dead gorgeous!!!).
