The Ford was a better motor by far. Designed and built by International. The GM 6.2/6.5 Detroit was an ok motor. The pre 1995 models were the most reliable because the electronic PMD's were known to overheat and go bad.. The 6.2 was a diesel equivalent to a gas 305, and the 6.5 with the turbo, was more suited to replace the 350... If you keep a 6.2/6.5 stock and in good maint, they will last forever... The 7.3 has been known to belch black smoke when the injectors need a tune up but other than that, they are solid and reliable.
