Anyone cracking 6.7 oil pans

I don't have a 6.7 but i have a friend who does/did. He was driving down the interstate and kicked up a rock or something and busted his oil pan. He said he lost all of is oil and shredded the engine. His insurance paid for a new engine but he still immediately traded the truck off for a Chevy. I'm just wondering if any one else is having issues like this. His truck was hard loaded so I would have thought it would have had a skid plate to help. I also find it funny that the truck lost oil but didn't die. One time I left the VGT solenoid out of my bro-in-laws 6.0 and forgot to tell him and he took off, he made it about 100 yards before it died, no problems at all. Does the 6.7 not die if there is oil pressure loss? It will be many moons before I can get a 6.7, I'm just curious.

well a 6.0 relies on that HP oil for the injectors to operate, where the 6.7L is a common rail fuel system. (The 6.0 is also technically a common rail, but not in the terms of the high pressure common rail like the Duramax, Cummins and 6.4L PSD)

If you left off the VGT solonoid, then that HP oil of the 6.o would be pumped out pretty quick, causing the shut down, because there is not any pressure to operate the HEUI system that is the heart of the 7.3 and 6.0 functionality.

You know, I'm wondering if this story would be one of perfect example of one of the reasons Ford "went backwards" and changed the lower oil pans of these engines back to the stamped steel style like that of the older engines.

So they went to a steel pan now? This particular truck was one of the first ones out, he ordered it before they were on the lots.

Yeah they went to a metal pan. But I'm not sure exactly when. My dealer doesn't sell very many diesels.

My 2012 F350 has plastic aswell. This was the reason i inquired with warn to see if they were making skid plates like for previous SD trucks. They say nothing offical but they do have one in thier fleet now so...... is how they left it . Fingers crossed between the oil filter and platic pan thats why i have not ventured off road yet.

From what I read they changed pans for cost reasons the metal pans are cheaper. I have plastic on mine at least the are easy to change out no lifting motor. If there are many faliures Ill change mine to metal.
