Default Ford- New 6.0 Powerstroke- anyone care to comment?

I went to look at F-250 crew cab & excursions last week. I still think I'm leaning towards the Excursion, but they said I gotta wait for the new motor. I'm not sure if the the 7.3 Powerstroke is to be no more, but you cant get a diesel excursion till mid october and it will be the 6.0L powerstroke, not the 7.3L powerstroke. You can get the 7.3 in the F-250/350 still right now though. The new motor is a 6.0L with more hp and torque. I hadn't heard this yet so I thought I'd post it cuz I know alot of you have diesels already, and I'd like to hear your opinions. Here's what it says in the brochure I have, for comparisons sake:

7.3L 16 valve power stroke
V8 turbo diesel
250 max [email protected]
525 ft lbs max [email protected]
cast iron block
cast iron heads
bore 4.11
stroke 4.18
compression ratio 17.5:1

6.0L 32 valve powerstroke
V8 turbo diesel
325 max [email protected]
560 ft lbs [email protected]
cast iron block
cast iron heads
bore 3.74
stroke 4.13
compression ratio 18.0:1

And a new TorqShift trans with a tow haul mode, this is right out of the Ford booklet I got at the dealer.

That sounds like a pretty sweet upgrade dude. You selling the Yukon? I might be interested.

I buy and sell alot of trucks as I set up custom tow rigs and trailers for customers . I get all the latest right from Ford . ( OF course it changes all the time ) THe last I got was NO more orders for 7.3 as of a week ago. (In the trucks ) The 6 liter is suposed to be out in JAnuary in the trucks . Not sure how they do the excursions .Also the torque number they just sent me is 620 !! IT is going to be extremely quiet , much more power , better mileage, and yes a 5 speed auto trans . I haven't herd anything about what they will do for a manual trans yet .

Just what I'm told ...........

OH , and the chips will just plug in !!! NO more taking the computer apart and prepping it like before !

AND , for you farmer types , I have chips for your John Deeres now !!! Yup , anything with a bosche pump . I beleive they are 8600 or 8800 series or something . Not sure . BUT COOL !

There's the guy that I knew would know something about this!!
The dealer told me last week mid-october they would get the first 6.0's in. We'll see if thet holds true or not.

Hey Joey, did you guys get all the bugs worked out of the 5R100???? I'm betting on Jan. delivery of the 6.0s???? Come on now Joey, spill the beans. YOU have that inside connection. I heard they did some testing here in CO. with the new combo, was I lied to???? Questioning minds are waiting for a reply.
