Seems to be overwhelming support for the 7.3L. Well I too was in the same postion about 4 months ago in trying to decide what to buy. I talked to my best fried (who owns a Auto Repair business and his mechanics).
They all said the same thing. The 7.3L (if it has not been mis-treated it's whole life) is almost bullet proof. They did not like the 6.0's and told me to buy a 7.3L or skip all the way to 2008 (and of course there is no EX avaialbe after '05).
I think I'd like to have the 5 speed tranny and an 05 EX but not with the 6.0L. There are some '05's built during the first half of the year that still came with the 7.3L if you can find one buyt they will have the 4R100 trans.
Good Luck, D
