New 6.7L Scorpion...

Nice article... although Im concerned about a few things...

BAD
(1) Looks like the block is a compacted powder block.. NOT a cast block..
(2) No manual transmission option, only can get it in the 6R140

GOOD
(1) It appears with the re-designed top end that most everything from injectors, fuel rails, rocker arms, pushrods, etc etc can all be done more easily now w/o having to do cab-off

HOLY EASY INJECTOR SWAP BATMAN!

The good:
1) Bosch Common Rail
2) Re-designed EGR Cooler & Valve System
3) 6 head bolts per cylinder versus 4 on the 6.0L/6.4L
4) Ease of repair without cab-off
5) Reverse Flow Cylinder Heads for super fast turbo spooling
6) Re-designed rocker arms which we all know has been an issue on both the 6.0L & 6.4L.

The bad:
1) As gahanna said the compacted powder block
2) Plastic Oil Pan
3) Connecting Rods are a bit light appearing
4) 2010 Emissions choking down its full potential

I'm assuming ya'll got the new issue of DP mag in the last day or 2? Great full write up in it about the 6.7. It appears Ford invited DP in to do a write up on it...

will have to check out the DP issue. with the new turbo design, i dont think upgrading turbo's is going to be very simple.... but hopefully it will be able to flow well enough to not need replaced when turned up

A plastic oil pan? wtf. How do they build a 50k truck and put a confounded plastic oil pan under it.

I also didn't like the mock up of the whole truck. The front end, rear fenders, nothing

i'm curious as to why you guys dont like the CGI blocks? they're stronger than cast iron. CGI blocks have been known to be something like 20% stronger(dont quote me on exact #'s, i could be wrong). Rally cross blocks have been CGI for a while now. so it makes sense that a super duty truck would have a CGI block since its primary purpose is to take abuse and tow almost anything you want to pull.

My only negative on the motor is the rods look kinda puny. But i dont know what they're made of either or how strong they are either....
