Where did you find that stuff at? Glad you posted numbers, though. We are getting somewhere.Dude....
A 95-97 460 makes 245hp/410ftlbs.
A 94.5-97 PSD makes 215hp/415ftlbs.
The 460 peaks torque at 2200rpm, the psd at 2000.
Ive towed with both of them. Granted it wasnt anything super hilly, but still, the 460 felt just as stout. In elevation it maybe a different story with the powerchoke havin a turbo.
As far as the V10s go, havent ran enough of them to form a super solid opinion, but, atleast in the early V10 years, its basically the same old same old, the 460 comes on harder from a dead stop, the V10 grabs it above 60.
Which, everyones entitled to their opinion, and im not taking away from either the 10 or the PSD. But i wouldnt trade my 460 for early versions of either.
Then IDI stuff was more compareable to a 351 then a 460.
I wouldn't trade a 460 either. I wouldn't bet any money on it though. I've had a 460, and a 2000 Powerstroke, and a (two of them) Banks 6.2 diesel. The Banks would pull the 460 inside-out and just beat the 7.3.
I used Sambos' 2003 F350 dually twice on long trips to haul stuff. And I had a 2000 E350 Powerstroke for many years, at the same time I had my 1987 crewcab diesel with a Banks 6.2 with a Gear Vendors. The 6.2 was the best performer out of those. Much quicker in acceleration with a load. Just have to watch the EGT. No gas motor is thick enough in torque to compete.
