If you go with a 6.0L get a 05 or newer. The 99 to 03 7.3Ls are very good engines, the transmission leaves much to be desired if you are planning to mod it. The newer 6.0Ls dont have the problems the 03 and early 04s had, and they run alot better than a 7.3L.

my bro-in-law has a late 04 6.0 and my nephew has an 05 6.0 one with exhaust and one without both stock (no mods) one lifted 4x4 one not I have a 2001 7.3 2wd no lift, 10kmod, and exhaust turbo back. and after driving both of their trucks many times other than a litlle more mid range power I wouldn't trade mine for nothin don't get me wrong they're great trucks but I just feel that the 7.3 is more of a solid motor and I have put that truck to the test and then some many times and it seems to just cry out for more Its my everyday truck and I needed something strong and depedable and I'am very happy,this one is definetly a long time keeper for me

I think it kind of depends one what you are planning to do with it. The 6.0 are a quicker diesel but the 7.3 is a powerhouse. I forget what diesel magazine I read this in but they were comparing the two and said for guys that live on flat land, in town, get the 6.0. For those who are a lil more country with ups and downs go for the 7.3. I bought a 7.3 after driving a 6.0. Its just my preference.
