Don't know how accurate these are but I found them a few places on the web as stock 2002 7.3 numbers.

HP
275 @ 2800 (manual)
250 @ 2600 (automatic)

Torque (lb.-ft.) @ rpm
520 @ 1600 (manual)
505 @ 1600 (automatic)

The '94-'97s usuall make about 170ish at the wheels and the SDs make right at 200 at the wheels. They went to the 6.0L because it was the next step in design. It's rated at more power and is supposed to have less emissions as well. Now they went to a 6.4 twin turbo.

Those numbers you see on the valve cover are flywheel HP...not rearwheel. Flywheel numbers will always be bigger since it won't take into account driveline parasitic loss of HP getting to the rears.

The biggest reason for going to the 6L was meeting emission requirements.
