7.3 with a 4r100 or a 6.0 with some bulletproof mods?

Which is the least of both evils do you suppose? Most the 7.3's I see out there I can't really get any history on so I don't know if the trans has ever been rebuilt. Same for the 6.0 but there are a couple for sale here with the EGR deleted and studs/gaskets done. All things equal I'm probably stuck with a truck with almost 200k on it.

Which do you suppose is better for unmodded DD and maybe some light towing? I keep ruling out the 6.0 then looking at the cost of rebuilding the 4r100 and coming back to the 6.0 trucks that seem to be a little better deal.

Because the 6.0 is a stout motor with a bulletproof transmission behind it from the factory. Especially if you keep power levels stock or under 500 to the wheels the trans will keep smiling and begging for more. The 6.0 can have some issues but once they are addressed properly the 6.0 can be just as reliable as the all coveted 7.3 or CR Cummins engines. They put out more power stock for stock than the 7.3 does and get better fuel economy when driven and tuned properly.
