I've never driven a newer diesel for very much at all so I don't really know about their speed. I drove a stock 7.3 power stroke about 5 miles down the road. I never punched it but it didn't feel like the quickest truck.

The 7.3s are slow but if u hook a chain to a 7.3 and a duramax the 7.3 will drag it

I wish I could have kept it and figured out the issues:
Stutter or die when wipers in in the rain (real good feeling hauling a trailer in the rain with the family).
Sometimes just stutter, run rough, pull over restart and fine, for a while.
Speedo wouldn't kick on sometimes, restart and fine.
Lost OH console power, couldn't trace.
Hubs go, new wheel bearings, not just hubs.

But when it was running good, it was nice.

Anyone ever go to bringatrailer.com?
Ive always heard stories bout how 7.3's were so reliable actually. Even cummins and duramax guys seem to love the 7.3 for its toughness

The 7.3 superdutys were pulling trucks. Purely for work

That's always what I've heard. Maybe it was a lemon?

But once you chip, injector, tune, and put a 17 degree high pressure oil pump in, they are quick

I got it handed down from inlaws. They got I from a friend that owns a body shop. He got it from the original owner that got in a wreck when it got away from him.

Anyway, when I got it, I had to do new injectors. That happens, they have a life span.

Clutch fork broke on me one day when I got to work. Had to get it towed 15 miles to a mechanic I use.

After CPS recall, it would randomly stutter. Went through 2 other CPS.

Leaked fuel from fuel bowl. Had to replace an o-ring, no big deal. Low sulphur drive it out. Only leaked in winter.

Then the other problem I mentioned.

Then front hub went. Happens. But pricey fix.

We're talking about stock trucks though, right? You can do all that crap to any truck to make it faster.

But trucks are primarily for work, not racing... Never understood the whole "my truck beat a ram/Duramax/Powerstroke in a drag race" thing lol
