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.

Way to go Wes. Score one for the original Powerstroke. What do you have done to your truck?
