Gotta pay to play regardless but there are a lot more 6.4's putting down huge power than 6.0's.

500 rwhp 6.0= studs, injectors, turbo, tuning, intake, and exhaust

500-550 rwhp 6.4= intake, dpf delete exhaust, and tuning

By my understanding the 6.4 just need a DPF delete and a tuner to put down a lot of power. But like Banshee said you gotta pay to play. The 6.4's have a lot of their own problems that have to be addressed just like the 6.0's do.

With the mad scientist making his turbos the 6.0's are putting up some very good numbers (605 RWHP), and he is still planning on designing a stage 4 & 5 for the 6.0. With him doing what he is doing I believe that the 6.0's can definitely run with the 6.4's & the 6.7's now.

It all depends on how much you want to spend to bulletptoof your 6.0. Which is essential if your building for power. Bullet proofing the truck yourself can save you ALOT of money if done correctly but at the same time is no small feat! Initial investment to make a 6.0 truly reliable is, correct me if I'm wrong anywhere from 1500 to 5000 depending on how much your doing, then the performance costs tack on to that. But on the same token one of my best friends is on here and owns a 6.4 and he's built his to around 550 hp and he's in the market for studs as we speak just for piece of mind. Also from what I've seen performance parts tend to cost a little more for 6.4's than 6.0's just cus there are so many 6.0's running around. I'm personally going to build up my 6.0 because I love my truck and wouldn't trade her for anything else!

I did alot of rambling here, I hope some of it helped.

Sorry, not trying to hijack but who is making these turbo's?

6.4 get there easier all the way but gonna cost more in the long run cuz the trans will need to be replaced eventually. They seem to be failing more often than 6.0's. I think it's because of the easily accessible power in the motor. exhaust+tuner and now the trans has to deal with 550hp all of a sudden. jmobservation.
