E series powerstroke

I was under the belief that the 6.0 had been re introduced for the E series as the 6.4 would not fit, but I am now seeing ads for new E450 based recreational vehicles that spec 235 hp, does anyone have the facts?

It could be the same motor used in the Ford LCF (Cab Over Box Trucks) we have an LCF and it has a 4.5 V-6 Twin Turbo International which is rated at 200 it has been good so far we've put about 50,000 miles on it so far

bigwhite7.3stroker-tnks for the reply. I went to the Ford website and it is the 6.0-with all the new emissions stuff probably, I am wondering if the info I saw was typo's?

You really have me curious as to how many more (?) mpg's we would get if the V6 you mentioned was installed in our van-our '07 really has too much hp (should have made that torque?) for rv use, seriously this thing can get up and go...

Every read about someone saying they had too much power?



I want one!:

As far as I have heard, Ford is still using the 6.0 in vans for the foreseeable future. They are rated at 235hp, and are basically the sam as the truck version, but de-tuned, and with a smaller intercooler.

A five year warranty; see that confirms what I have always thought about the 325 hp 6.0, it is pushed out the factory maxed out-don't get me wrong I love the engine, but you do have to wonder how much more fuel efficient it would be in a milder state thanks again bigwhite7.3stroker.

elibenson, have you heard or would you guess about the mileage in the detuned version?, perfomance?? and do you know if the warranty is the same???-appreciate the post.

The performance is asthmatic, the mileage is less than stellar, and the warranty is the same. I have used a number of 6.0l vans (ambulances) and they invariably are less driveable than the 7.3l versions. Ambulances are heavy and slow, but among ambulances, I have experience in both, and I would rather have the 7.3l.

The pickup truck version is much better in mileage. The reason is that with a higher horsepower engine, it doesn't have to work as hard to do the same job. You are only using a fraction of your throttle instead of having to use most of it to get the job done. It won't have to downshift to make hills. More horsepower is always better than less. That is why a tuned pickup truck will get better mileage than a non-tuned truck. Some of it has to do with efficiency of burn, but more of it has to do with the fact that the engine is not breaking a sweat doing it's job.

It's the same thing with gasoline engines. My friend has a small block chevy that is about 400hp. We've been messing with intakes, carbs, etc, and every time the horsepower goes up, the mileage goes up.
