I own 2 6.0s. I'm skipping right past 7.3PS and looking at a '91 IDI tomorrow (if it doesn't snow). I've read thru all this thread and there are plenty of valid reasons to have all of them. I'd hate to have to choose, so I'm not. An IDI, then a 7.3 powerstroke, then when they come down enough for my piney tastes I'll get a 6.7. Think I'll leave the 6.4 out, but all the rest I want.
I'm just captivated by this IDI non turbo engine, I haven't seen anything that simple since my 50 willys. Since I'm not buying it for comfort or it's towing (even tho it's a motor designed for a schoolbus and was the shiznit back then and will pull stumps) I think I'm gonna love it. There is no better or worse, it's just what you want it for and what you like.
