November 5, 2014I`ve been looking for an F350 with the 7.3 manual trans 4X4 crew cab long bed for the past year. Most of the ones i`ve found are either to far away rusting away or priced way to high. I know you can do the EGR delete head studs and a few other things to get them running right. What are years I should look at and how do you like your 6.0? Anyone that has had both motors what differences are there in the power and towing between them?

November 5, 2014My `11 TT Ecoboost took over for my `07 F350 Lariat. Once you get past the HPOP problem with the 6.0 they are just as good as the 7.3 ( my opinion of course ).

November 10, 2014Only have had the 7.3L, but on another forum so I`ve heard a bunch of things about the 6.0L.
One of the reasons the 7.3Ls are higher price is because they are reliable. They seem to run forever. They`ll pull like an ox. Not fast, but steady.
As stated, the 6.0L can be made reliable as 7.3Ls by doing head studs, EGR / Oil coolers (some delete/some use aftermarket replacements), keep the turbo clean (they have VGT (variable geometry technology - vanes move depending on how much boost is needed)) turbos and good voltage from your FICM. These are the main ones.
If you decide to look at a 6.0L, ask if this stuff has been done to it - By now many have. The general term is bullet-proofed.

December 21, 2014MikeRadMan I really don`t want anything to do with the newer diesel engines. I don`t know about the pickup engines but in the big engines Detroit, Cummins, Volvo etc DPF and DEF are nothing but issues and very expensive to diagnose, fix, or replace. I`m not to big on EGR either but at least it`s easy to do away with.
