Welcome to the Addiction um I mean Org! I say get any version of Power Stroke you want. The 7.3 is bulletproof and can be very loud, the 6.0 is what I have and I love it. Just ask my neighbors if it is LOUD and the 6.4 is great as well.

So far, both the 7.3 and 6.0 will do what you're asking. 6.0's can be good daily drivers with some towing mixed in. Tho, as a mechanic I prefer the 7.3. Both have a huge aftermarket following too.
