The way you talk, sounds like the v6 is just a run of the mill car engine.
The ecoboost v6 has better HP and TQ than diesels only a few years ago.

I'll have to agree with this.
And also I've run heating oil in diesel engines before, and they get considerably louder, so no way is it the exact same oil mixture. I think the furnace heating oil...

500$ for an air intake that adds up to 28 hp, but that is 'up to', so maybe at all out high RPM levels.

Fist of all, the 7.3 is never coming back, there is no point sitting around and whining about it.

And the size of an engine does not automatically mean it will last longer compared to a smaller...

Boost is generated higher the higher the engine is loaded.
That being said I'm not an expert on the ecoboost and I don't know what the computer would do.

Has anyone compared towing with an ecoboost in a lower gear to keep RPM's up and boost down?
I wonder if the MPG would be better?

It also looks like the injection was way advanced leaving the star burn pattern on it.
Like as in, I think it was tuned.

Well, I don't want to say it, but this project is nearly suspended as of now.
All this time, effort, and planning, possibly all for nothing.
I have been wanting to do this for literally years.

Yes I agree. The 6.4 is way more efficient at burning fuel, and the variable injection timing is key also.
The 6.4 would have more air flow as well, with 4 valves per cylinder, but I think that...

The reason common rail fuel systems can cost 10k$ like people say, is that if certain parts fail, the whole system becomes contaminated.
At that point, if you just replace say the injectors, the...
