Sounds like a good time to me, and I look forward to your report. Wish the V10 wasn't going away. I would like to see a trip comparison with it along with the 6.2 gasser, that would be more "Apples to apples" to me. The 6.2 comes with the 6sp trans though, which they say helps it's performance. Have fun.

Dreaming of a test mule that is V-10, dual turbo chargers, direct injection, 4 valves per cylinder...

No need here, I'd take the V10 anyday. Proven motor and it won't leave you dead on the side of road. Reliably in towing when miles away from home is priceless
Have a nice trip!

I'd like to read your experiences as well. I'm a fan of the V10 reliability and suitability for low annual miles applications.

If the 6.0 and or V10 is chipped and tuned, the compare gets real hard.

I'm surprised nobody is taking bets on if the 6.0 will even make it out of the driveway. But it's ok, the 6.0 haters will be along shortly, they always are.

Or perhaps someone know the 6.0 is running a tuner.

I would read whatever comparison you care to post. As far as parameter suggestions, I'm not particularly interested in the metrics like fuel mileage, cost per mile, or who can go faster. That stuff is easy to find and much debated.

So my interest would be in the driver experience. That means the two of you should swap seats and drive a few miles in the others shoes. How does the noise level compare? How does the tranny handle the shifts when the gasser RPM jumps far more than the diesel? How does the CC handle hills? How do you feel about the gasser reving at 4 or 5k while the diesel is at 2 or 3k?

No hating here, it just amazes when people keep buying Ford diesels after having major problem after problem. I think they make a good truck just not a good diesel. I hope for Fords's sake the 6.7 works out because third time is not a charm if this one fails.
