96 7.3 VS. 11 6.7

Goes to show you Ford let go of their best motor...

I was sittin at a stop light waitin for it to change when a new 6.7 rolled up next to me. The guy was obviously pretty charged up he just got a new 6.7, revved it up and pointed down the road. I figured what the heck and flipped the chip on 140. Now I figured I was gonna get spanked right?

Well the light flipped green and off we went. Now I hate my tranny shift points so I shifted manually with the shifter. But I couldn't believe I was half a truck length ahead of him! when I flipped it in 3rd I kept the OD off and ran her a little into the yellow then pressed the button and went into OD. By the time I hit 95 he was a little over a truck length behind me. Came up to the next light and he nodded his head in approval haha.

Now either he wasn't pushing it all the way or the 6.7 isn't all its cracked up to be.

Either way I'll take it.

Anyways chalk another up to the 7.3

here is a stock 6.7 vs a 140 tuned 7.3

Comparing a tuned truck to a stock truck isnt fare. IMO they are very nice to drive in stock form.

im not sure how to look at it, i think both are true. it was good for the 7.3 to keep with the 6.7. It was also good for the 6.7 in stock form to keep up with a modded truck. just think if you opened up the 6.7!

Damn... our trucks only run a 16 second quarter mile with those tunes and some mods??? Sigh... definitely not in the 7.3 for the speed, that's for sure. Nice trucks though!

He wasn't even trying..your 140 setting still will only make 50 max more than stock.

now a mild built 7.3 like mine will kill any new diesel truck..but all they have to do is add a big tune and watch out..

I figured he probably wasn't trying... or Ford has the 6.7 detuned pretty far from the factory. I know if he had a tuner I would've been spanked. Heck I'm just running TS tunes.. Not even custom tunes yet.

i have a 2000 7.3 and i love it but i think with my dp tuner on 120 with the intake and exhaust i may be around 375 hp. i thought the new 6.7 was 400 or more. it is still fun to take and old truck and surprise someone with a new diesel.

More lie 300hp... but that's at the wheels, Ford measures at the flywheel so derate the 400hp on the 6.7 for drivetrain loss and you're slightly closer.
