New 6.4 owner

Traded my 03 6.0 in for an 08 .
Car fax looked good. Had some knowledge on that motor, but not much on the 6.4. I know that when I can afford a Spartan tuner and exhaust I will do that. What are something's I need to watch for etc?

2008 F250 XLT SBCC grey flake, 33x12.50 Toyo m/t's on 18 inch mammoth wheels. Rhino lined go rhino nerf bars. S&B cai,Spartan tuned and straight piped. Fake *** chrome grille removed and a matching colored grille put in place.

Well I can not compare the 6.4 to your old 6.0 since I have never owned one. All of this probably goes without saying, but here it is anyways. I would definitely get all that emissions crap off (assuming you can where you live) to prevent further damage to the truck. I have not had any major issues yet with mine, thankfully. I am a stickler with general maintenance, like most people probably are. You need to get a CAI if you don't already have one and are getting a Spartan. If you don't the truck will be air-starved and start throwing codes.

Just my two cents. There are way more people on here that are much more knowledgeable than I am in regards to these beasts. Congrats on the new truck!

Buddy owes me a cai. He was telling me that oil needs to be changed every 2.5k miles until emissions are eliminated.. Seems like over kill to me. I posted a question about a popping noise on right side of end end while heater is on. No response.

It might be your blend door inside the heater/ac housing. From what I have read on here it is pretty common on these trucks.

was having an issue with either the blend door or the actuator, and it sounded way different. But it was a few year new car. sounds likeits coming from outside the cab and not in it.
