In the mean time, I'm just going to sit back, save my pennies, drive a 17yo truck that hasnt had a payment in 13 year to my modest house that's recently paid for and retire early. I have nobody I'm trying to impress.

Ya'll have fun blowing money... it helps the economy which helps fill my accounts. Older and wiser

Just got done cleaning the mess up. If I have to baby this anymore, I am shutting the fun down completely. Play nice children, this isn't a pissing contest. Keep this on topic and civil.

For the love of god you have both been here long enough to know better.

Obviously not all, but easy to spot the sensitive ones.



I was one of them guys, "7.3 is the only good motor ever made and you're crazy if you say otherwise"

It's called having a narrow mind.

Seems like alot of it is spite that stems from not being able to afford buying a new truck.

On the contrary You notice the older more mature 7.3 guys , they're happy with their truck yet acknowledge the new trucks are very nice and reliable and wouldn't hesitate to replace theirs if they had to. They could easily afford the new rig but choose not to. Nothing at all wrong with that.

Just a clear difference in the way each respond.


Bottom line: if a guy can afford to drive a new truck and wants to, let him do it without trying to virtue signal as if you're wiser for driving a 7.3

Stock vs stock , tuned vs tuned , or modded vs modded the 6.7 hands down no comparison. Hook your load up to a 6.7 especially a 17+ and tell me I'm crazy.

And yes I've had a 7.3 that I took from stock to 650hp, still have 6.0 that went from stock to about 1k hp and a 6.7 that I took from stock to 700 hp.

The 6.7 is so solid, stout and smooth that it feels like it's not making as much power as it is. Go underneath a new truck and look at how beefy everything is compared to even the early 6.7s. There's no doubt your getting an incredibly strong machine. If any thing , it's way more of a truck in that regard. (Not to mention twice The power) The frame alone is 24 times stronger then the pre 17 trucks, that's pretty serious. Makes 6.0/7.3 look like a 1/2 ton underneath.

7.3 is a great motor an is by no means a junker , but I've learned in life to release the lesser things to embrace and receive the better things.

I remember the mind blowing luxury of that thing compared to my skateboard, it's all relative. Gonna be a money pit tho to ever approach "meticulous maintained", but gonna be fun
