6.0 or 6.4

i have a 2006 6.0 now and i was about to do the head studs egr delete and run tunes with and sct but, i was driving by the ford dealership and i found a 2008 6.4 fully loaded in my price range. Before i go to the dealership i wanted to come on here and see what everyone has to say. Would it be worth it to upgrade to the 6.4, i would wanna delete the dpf and cat and run some tunes if i did go with the 6.4. Im worried about the emissions seeing as i live in ma and they have some dumb laws. Also what are some big issues with the 6.4's i havent heard very much about the issues except for the radiators in the job 1's. Just looking for some insight thanks guys

Find out what job it is and look at the service records. I'd say go for it. The 6.4's can make some massive power

you run the risk of warranty denial if you remove the dpf and run tunes. you can remove the dpf and tune it, then put it all back on for emissions but again you run the risk of getting pulled over and fined for removing that stuff but it's a slim chance that happens.

If you've got a good running 6.0, and you're planning on bullet proofing it, just stick with that truck. I mean, I wouldn't get rid of a truck that's gonna be set to last you hundreds of thousands of miles for a new truck that you know very little about. I've heard more mixed things/reviews about the 6.4 than the 6.0, I'd be careful. Are you just not happy woth your 6.0?

The only reason I dont have my 6.0 anymore is because it got rolled over. I loved the truck, never had a problem with it at all.. besides gelling up on me a few times. As stated though, the 6.4 is a good running engine also.

although I do agree with your logic, your last comment is just laughable. There is no way in hell that the 6.0 has better user reviews than the 6.4. FYI the 6.0. has a class action lawsuit right now.
To the OP, stick with your 6.0 and fix the known issues. You will save allot more money in the long run.
Good luck,
Dom

I think the 6.4 is a pretty mean motor. i think that they learned from their mistakes and fixed a lot of them. my buddy has a 6.4 and he loves it. time will tell but i think the 6.4 will go down as another quality motor from navstar. IMHO
