No experience in a heavier truck, we have them in a pair of 2020 F450 short wheelbase selfloaders.  The 7.3 gas absolutely has more grunt than our previous 6.8 trucks, which is good and bad; they move when you need them to but as a PPI truck they are quite loud at the tailpipe even when idling.  They remind me a bunch of an old Chevy 3500HD 7.4 or 8.1 rumbling away.

 

I'm still a little wait-and-see on the 10 speed auto.  It sure seems to hang in 1st longer than I like while accelerating from a dead stop, it really winds out the engine for no apparent good reason, when I'd prefer it had already shifted.  Again this may not matter to most people but as a PPI operator it makes it tough to be sneaky when going through apartment parking lots.
