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.

3. They are really not that complicated to work on. Especially since you have all of us! Good luck and welcome to the org.!

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
