IDC If a 6.7 does Beat a 7.3 it only cause it has 10+ years newer tech . But a 7.3 will last longer as it not a throw away engine. It brought the fight to cummins period

Im a powerstroke fan so don't get me wrong. The 7.3 never "brought" anything to the cummins. The 7.3 is so limited in performance terms. It still will not last as long as an old 5.9. I've seen million mile 5.9 never a 7.3 but I have seen a 7.3 with 500k.. the one thing a 7.3 has is staying power. It is the only real survivor from the early years that is still desirable, mainly because of the trucks they were put in, not just the engine. You just don't find many older dodges because they fall apart around the engine. I've actually had 7.3, 6.0, 6.4 and 6.7 powerstrokes. If I had to pick only one to drive, be comfortable in and be overall satisfied it would be a 6.7. So unless you have put years and thousands of miles in each you are just playing a favorite because its what you currently drive.

I had a 7.3 and I loved that truck. I also have a new 6.7 and that truck is nice too, except for the two exhaust valves that came apart and ruined the head and two pistons and cylinders.

The only problem my 7.3 ever had was the injector sleeves. I actually made a tool for removal and reinstalation of the injector sleeves, so that brake down made me money!

Actually there been a few 7.3s over a million over on psn and I'm not being biased to what I drive as I just not a big fan of newer stuff the last nice ford for me was the 6.4 superdutys they was nice . But Hell the y.u needs a full engine build alone to hit 500hp it seems just way to much for the diy mechanic not to be able to fix. Most will agree on the last at least

If u think about it why else would cummins needed to up the power on it if the 7.3 was around cause the 6.5 has nothin on it.... Also check out the 1 6.9 idi makin 350hp and 750 pounds of torque. It fairly inexpensive too over on psn.com

I've done full builds on 6.4's and I can tell you that with a tune and a exhaust you can make 500rwhp. That costs less than $1000 and can be done in a couple of hours.

I have had f-350 4x4's w/460s all my life,but I like my 5.9 Cummins w/380,000 miles p-pump.Easy to make h.p. & good fuel mileage.Ford missed it when they used international for engines.

I've got an old 1984 F-350 with the 6.9 IHI engine. Now THAT engine is the biggest POS Ford ever put in their trucks!!

Its gonna get yanked out and replaced with a 557 torque monster.

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!

The 6.9 iso isn't bad it wasn't made to be a power house it will hang with a stock 7.3 if it a manual and turboed and such. And they sound sweet too and a Cummins in a Ford is OK but lots do it now
