I agree... im 18 and im glad i have a 6.0 the power is awesome, and they are reliable too.. my brothers 03 6.0 has 225,000 miles still running strong..dont do your son like that..get him a 6.0..matter of fact get him an 03 6.0..hes young so hes gonna want power not reliability :hehe:
I got my first f250 when I was 18 and my 2nd one when I was 21 my present truck I have right now..03 6.0 wouldnt trade it for anything.
fordmugg is right ... and no unfortunately. read up on the 6.0's if that is what you're considering. The 6.0 has about 100 more hp stock than a 7.3 BUT, it has all the emissions crap to deal with, EGR's, Catalytic Converters, etc. Which is imo what hindered its reliability in the earlier years. Straight up, they're a fine engine, but they had a ton more problems than the 7.3's. The biggest reason they quit making them was for the EPA.so how much hp does a 6.0 have and is a good motor what would i have to worry about
