The 7.3 is a desirable engine and would be my choice if I were to buy a Ford diesel. I think the 6.4 is considerably better than the 6.0. Do your research ---------------- http://www.trucktrend.com/cool- trucks/1212dp-6-4l-problems/

Whatever you do stay away from modified trucks and have a good diesel shop check it out first.
