6.4 or 6.0

I may be looking at buying a new truck if the FMC Dealer can't fix mine. I have a both the 07 6.0, or the 08 6.4 to choose from. I don't see much on the reliability of the 6.4's and Ideas guys.

6.4 is a relatively new motor but other than the tailpipe flame recall havent heard a bad thing about it. The biggest positive thing i see about the 6.4 is that it is tuned and designed to run on the new ULSD fuel.

The 6.0 is a great engine also.

I wouldnt be afraid of either one but might wait a year on the 6.4 since it is new production

I would prolly still go with the 6.0 as well. There are much more aftermarket parts for the 6.0s. Not to say that the 6.4s will not catch up soon in that area, but, for now there is more for the 6ers.

I would wait a year. But if you had to have one today I would pick the 6.0L The 6.4 will prolly be a better engine in the long run, but there are going to be plenty of bugs to work out with the new emmisions products.

My very good friend is a Ford Diesel Tech and there is a guy that bought a new 08..and it was in the shop..I asked what was up with it..thats what he said.

Also..

if the truck comes in for a check engine light..and the tech 'fixes' it..or so he thinks..it takes 200 miles even if the problem is still there immediately after the 'fix' for the check engine light to illuminate.
