Want to buy a 6.0

Hey about 3-4 months ago i sold my 7.3 powerstroke OBS and im starting to look for another diesel to buy. im either going to buy a 99-03 7.3 or a 6.0 I dont know much about the 6.0's all i really know is they have been plaque with some problems but they are very fast when they are working. so i was just wondering if i could get some info on them like whats to high of milage to buy one, i found one already but it has 150,000 miles idk if thats a lot for a 6.0 because i know thats nothing for a 7.3

I'LL KEEP MY MONEY, MY FREEDOM & MY GUNS & YOU CAN KEEP THE "CHANGE"

i have a 7.3 and a 6.0 and the 6.0 it always broke down i keep it totally stock and my 7.3 has a superchip and some other thangs and no prob with it. the 7.3 even pulls better. i would go with the 7.3 they are way better. and the 7.3 can get way more miles on them.

I'd go with another 7.3. Can't make them very fast like a 6.0, but you will most likely have way less problems. Plus you'll pay less for a 99-03 instead of an 04-up. Depends if you want reliability or a truck to soup up and go fast...

I want a truck i can soup up but i know i can do that to a 7.3, i know it wont be nearly as fast but it will still be good especially if i wont be needing to fix it all the time
