7.3 or 6.4

I'm debating on whether to get save up for a 6.4 or a 7.3. I'm 17 and I want to go to school to become a diesel mechanic and I think getting and rebuilding my dads 7.3 would be a good lesson for me.

Haha I've heard they're easy to make power too. Maybe I'll get the 7.3 and still save up for the 6.4

sounds like a good plan, 7.3 is a great motor but in all honesty i wouldnt waste my time building one. i would just drive the 7.3 till you can afford a 6.4 then build that monster.

I like the front end of the 6.4. But if I was to get one I'd get a long bed. Short beds are point less after you throw a toolbox on and a pain in the rear when you have a 5th wheel
