I've driven a few 7.3L and 6.9L pre-powerstroke engines. I'd have to agree, the 3V 5.4 is more powerful.

The old engines were torque monsters, but not much horsepower. You could pull a load far exceeding the ability of the 5.4L, but you were not going to win any drag races.

The old IDI engines reminded me of the semi trucks I would see as a kid. They could pull 80,000 pounds but would crawl up the shoulder at about 15 MPH on the mountain passes of the west. Lots of torque but not a lot of horsepower.

Yeah IDI engines aren't much down the way of fast. My buddy drives one with 360K on the clock and it stills runs good though. It still pulls like a tank but not much faster than one.

Yeah that ATS turbo just made it so I could officially outrun my grandmother on her walker... not much when it comes to speed for sure!

Now I for one will stand behind my Triton 5.4 until the little engine that can does me wrong. In fact, I prefer my 5.4 over the general's pushrod engines. They may go fast (a lot faster), but I feel they are not as suited for all-around truck applications as the mod motor in these SD's.

Does anybody have a horsepower/ torque curve for the 5.4 and any testimony/ opinions regarding our debate?
I used my 04 250 with the 5.4 to uproot a tree that was almost 30 ft. tall and a foot in diameter. And it has 130k on it. *low rumble*

I once had a new 2004 2500 with the 6.0, my father has a 2000 f350 with the v10 we were coming up over the cascades pulling very similar trailers and he had much more go then I did. I know that the 6.8 is much more engine then the 6.0 but the way he was able to maintain speed in a heavier truck with maybe a little hevier trailer left me feeling a little inadiquate. I think that they are all good motors but I would prefer the Ford not so much as for the engine but the truck that wraps around it.
