If you get a 7.3 then try to find a 2002 or early 03. They're more refined, just have a nicer look. The 7.3 is a great choice for sure. I'd go that, or a 6.7.

yea they'll be cheaper, and there will be way more feedback on them. Not to mention more aftermarket components.

One more vote on the 7.3! The last GREAT engine made by Navistar for Ford. Go with whatever year you want on it, but I'd steer clear of early 1999 due to the frankenstein type setup of it.

My vote was for the 6.0. Great engine, gobs of power, AND it still sounds like a diesel!
