Would I be stupid to buy a 6.0 for an 03 turbo?
i'm serious, lol. I absolutely love the 03 turbo sound. It sounds like a jet. I've done everything I can think of to my 02 7.3 and it still can't compare. I've taken off the aluminum foil, got an AFE Stage 1 intake, took off the hood insulation thing, did the ZooDad Air Mod (or w/e it's called), added a WW, and it's chipped if that helps anything.
I'm saving up for a 2005-2007 F250 short bed truck. I could probably get a 2008, but I don't want big payments. I'm looking to spend no more than 22k for a truck (on the 05-07's at least). I'd really like to spend no more than 20k if possible. I don't plan on trying to make it super fast; I'd go for an 08 if I was doing that with a Spartan. All I really care for is looks and whistle, while getting an upgrade at the same time from my 02 7.3L. I'd probably chip it, exhaust, intake, and throw an 03 turbo in it; if there is anything else that'd help the whistle I'd do that too, but that'd be it.
I suppose I could save more by buying an 03 or 04 6.0, but I want the updated look at least. What you guys think?
