Sorry I am not the Ford guy anymore as I was in the past. However my father is holding ground for the both of us. In market for truck to upgrade from his F-150 hoopdie... Was gonna go 6.7 but can't really suffice the big money they are for something he just needs to tow and hold his friends. The nice thing is the 6.7 mileage being better than 6.4. I thought for a bit I had him convinced to get a 7.3 in the late body style but I think he wants newer look to it. I know the 6.4''s had some problems. One for instance is at a dealer used with 41K miles. What are some things to ask and check for. What are some issues to lookforward to. Also if he gets used he gave me the ok to have at it
So. Tuner, exhaust, intakes whatever gets him some better fuel mileage. Along with getting some better power for towing, good mileage for daily driver tune. NOW with that said heres what I wanna knwo and if I should get any supporting mods. Note I do like to do things right the first time and if it means a few bucks to get something worth it I do.
Move around or add something to the order:
1- Exhaust w/ dpf delete. Nothing gutted all the way maybe leave a muffler so its not to loud for the ol guy
2- intake if needed for that level of power which isn't much
3- tuner for all codes. Really just need some mileage and some towing tune. Something easy for him to switch between or just have a single tune for all of it. I'll be the only one working on it, as well has tuning and all that im good. Just need to know when im not around which I hope is 100% of the time he can handle it haha
4-what other mods you may say can help that 6.4 for longevity, durability, and mileage more important.
Note: My ol man is tuff on equipment but in no way "Beats" his stuff. Just a lack of maintenance guy, but thats where I come in. I am hoping he gets the truck being I went Duramax (sorry fellas had to try it out and love it for what I do with the truck). But am excited to hopefully play with his.
