My 7.3 has 430,000 miles with no major mechanical issues until recently. Transmission went out. I also have a 2006 6.0. It's 145,000 on it. In the last year I have had to replace oil cooler, turbo and recently #8 injector. I'm not a mechanic but I can wrench little bit. 7.3 are a lot easier to work on than a 6.0 imo. 7.3 is a work horse and can take a lot of abuse. 6.0 has more power and fun to drive but needs strict maintenance. I have seriously been thinking about trading my 6.0 for another 7.3. I love my 6.0 and the way it drives especially with tunes but it's been pricey to keep.

I've worked on both 7.3 and 6.0, both relatively easy to work on IMO. I'm no mechanic by no means but I'm not afraid to get dirty either.

Buy an optioned out 05 v10 with a bad engine. Drop a Cummins in it. The the rattle box 12 values but a 6.7. Then do an 05+ truck suspension swap.

Done!

My dad is in the middle of a 6.7 16 platinum excursion build right now at his shop.

It's going to be for sale when it's finshed

I'd like to buy it for my wife, but he'd sell it cheaper to one of you guys first

A 6.7 excursion would be amazing to say the least! Probably way out of my price range though lol

Yeah, a 6.7 excursion with a newer front end would be sweet.
Or even a duraburb. Lol

^ Good looking truck.

Op, I had a 03 excursion limited 7.3. Had 350k miles. Had no major mechanical failures, and was very reliable.

Good luck in any way you go

I have a 7.3 and 6.0 Excursion and so far, the 7.3 gets my vote hands down. Still haven’t been able to work all the bugs out of the 6.0 yet.
