Dare Trade 7.3 For New 6.7 Cummins

May Be That I'm Just That Stupid. Looking At Buying New 6.7 Cumminsnw/ The 6 Spd Auto. Anyone Know Much About These Motors/trans. Just Dont Know About These New 6.4's. From What You Read It Seems That Cummins May Be A Step Ahaed On The New Epa Nightmare Engines. Any Thoughts Would Be Nice.

There's nothing wrong with the 6.4... There is also nothing wrong with the 6.7...

That video of the 6.4 was a part faliure, nothing more... could have happened to any 7.3-6.0-5.9-6.7-6.6... The only reason there was the flames was the new filter loads up with fuel then when it goes in to regen mode... there ya go. Same thing could happen to a 6.6 and a 6.7, anything with a broken injector and a particulate filter.

Myself, I would go for the 6.7 of the two, just because I cant STAND the look of the new Ford... Would rather have the 6.4 motor in the 05 body... But they dont make it do they!

the only problem i've heard of the new 6.7L Cummins is the low fuel economy,compared to the 5.9L it runs an average of 5mpg lower,other then that it sounds like a great diesel..good luck

I would think alittle passed the engine and think about other thinks. Like the engine will outlast the rest of that dodge. That torque shift is one really nice tranny, and ford diffs are way better than the dodge.

I can't stand rattles in my cab, I have a couple of friends with dodges and they all have dash and door rattles. Drives me nuts. They also tell me how much more comfortable my ford is.

The 6.4 is also getting poor fuel economy, 10-11 empty is what I'm hearing.

neither will run with the dmax also cheaper to modify all you need is efi live about 3 hundred bucks. maybe the 6.4 will change things though when aftermarket parts comes out.
