6.4 Motor Question??
I have purchased a '08 F350. The person that i purchased it from paid Ford to tear the motor apart to find a engine noise.
They tore the heads off the engine and told them it had a bent connecting rod.
They had an extended warrenty that refused to fix it saying they had injector
issues and that was what caused the problem.
They refused to pay to fix the truck or put it back together. I bought it apart.
So over the long weekend I took the short block out. Got the engine tore apart
The engine is VERY clean inside. The stamp date on the bearing is 9/11 meaning the bearing were manufactured the 9th month of 2011.
So this is not the orginal engine to this truck. My question is would Ford have put a short block in this truck or did they only do long blocks??
The crank and rod bearing are all in good shape. So I guess I'll just rering the
engine and do head gaskets and head studs and reinstall???
I have the tuner,S&B CAI,I/C up grade pipe,high flow elbow w EGR cooler delete. What else should I do while the truck is apart???
Not sure on Larger down pipe??
Was going to get the injectors checked out. Diesel Injection said they could check them out and increase the flow 50-75 HP??
Also thought of having the turbos checked out. The V/V turbo was stuck
when i got the truck so I pulled it apart and got it freed up
Any ideal on how could check the turbos out that would be FAIR??
Open to any input
The truck will be used for towing a 35ft 5th wheel camper, 3 car wedge bed trailer and a 32ft enclosed trailer.
I currently have a '00 7.3 dullay that does the job fine now just wanted to
have a new/quieter truck
THANKS in advance
