Can't make up my mind

I have a 2001 single cab long bed 7.3, lately ive been toying with the idea of selling it and buying a 2012 single cab long bed 6.7. I wanna know some opinions from guys who have made the switch and is it worth it ? obviously the emissions stuff is a draw back but is there anything else that you guys dont like or regret after making the switch ?

I went from my 2001 ECSB 7.3 and the difference is undeniable. Yes the emissions do suck, but even with them it runs 100 times better and is so much more driver friendly.

Thanks for the input, I'll be 23 in march and I'm looking at moving out of my parents house so I'm trying to figure if the loan payment is worth it.

Keep the 7.3 and buy a house... Bringing chicks home to mom and dads is gonna get old quick.

Haha it got old a while ago, I figured I could afford moving out and a new truck things would be tight though.

I'd move out first then see where your at! Any chick worth bringing home will appreciate the fact you got your own place as opposed to a nice ride and living with mom.

This might be a dumb question but with all the emissions crack down, would there be a way to live tune my truck without all of the emissions equipment and not use a huge tuning company like h&s or spartan ?
