7.3s and 6.0s

i know us 7.3 guys aren't supposed to be able to beat 6.0s, but does anyone else at least enjoy passing them on the highway like i do? their drivers always seem to give a concerned sideways glance
I have cooked a tritonV8 and some duramaxs from a stoplight, but that ain't sayin much...

Stock vs. stock, yeah we're not supposed to beat them. But in the modified world all is fair. I 've out a few of them down that weren't stock. Its a good feeling, cause the guys with 6 oh no's that I run in to think there trucks are top fuel dragsters.

I defintely agree on this one excpet for the 4.6 motor. Now that little motor will walk the dog on a 5.0. I have had both. Now the new triton is just horrible especially with the electronic throttle crap that breaks anyway and will leave you stranded.
