If i had to find a 3/4 gasser id go with a chevy 6.0 or even the new 6.2... My buddies got one in his ccsb 2wd and he was keeping up with me on the truck at 14.9's.

Yeah i am already leaning towards the chevy. I have been hearing about how the 6.0 vortec is a really good v8 truck engine with good low end torque.

my vote has to go to the 6.0 vortec.. my buddy has a chevy utility body 6.0 and back when i had my 5.4 f150 we messed around from a stop light and i was surprised how quick that thing was. he has always gotten pretty good fuel econ too. both truck stock except an exhaust on mine. only complaint he had was its a little soft in the front with his plow

I owned a 5.4l f250 ext cab short bed and I had it for 5 years and totaled it about a month ago and it saved my life. I have heard about the 6.0 being pretty quick but I was told that it was getting worse mileage than mine. The only think I ever did to my truck was put two coil packs. I had 128k on it. Now let me tell you I bout the truck when I just turned 18 and I beat that truck like nobody's business. I promise you the reliability of the 5.4l triton is better than you would believe.

I didn't see you had the hemi up there too. But I think the hemi might be the quickest but horrible mileage. And ford pulled anything it wanted with no problem. I pulled a f350 dually with a 25' gooseneck with 3 full pallets of quickcrete I towed him at 45mph wi no problem. And I had 35's on mine and it would out run a 6.0 without a chip of course 30-90 mph. So my vote is the ford no questions asked
