address the well know issues that the 6.0 has and you'll have a good set up.

It'd be cheaper to fix a 6.0 than pay for the 6.4 and all the fuel it drinks....

What Diablos30 said !! The 6.0 is pretty well sorted out relative to solutions for known issues.

What problems are you having?

I recently had a 2010 6.4 loaner for about a week. I didnt care for it much. My experience , the throttle was like a light switch and the fuel mileage was simply ridiculous. At the time, I was in the market for a used King Ranch 6.4 and this experience changed my mind. Note, I'm not saying they are bad or anything is terribly wrong with them; just saying my experience convinced me to stay 6.0 . YMMV .

dependant on what your plans are... tuner for the 6.0 about $400. studs $425, labor 1500-2500. egr delete 200-400 bucks. gauges depoends on your preferences etc. add in a coolant filter and your pretty well set. on the 6.4 your looking at close to 2 grand for a dpfdelete and a tuner and mpgs will be the same or better and the truck will be worth more if they are comparible models and milage. it is a hard decision. i almost bought a 6.4 and it came down to purchase price. it was 8k difference between my 06 that i bought and the 08 i looked at. im glad now that i spent less since i have a few more bills and my wife make a lot less than she did a few months ago.

6.4 hands down. The 6.4 is twice the engine the 6.0 is, the interior is nicer, the exterior looks better. More power, fewer issues, and its newer.

As far as Fords go, you can't beat a 6.4
