6.4 advice

My buddy just bought a 2008 F250 with only 18K miles. I have a 6.0 and have done lots of aftermarket upgrades to keep it running. He's heard my stories and is curious about what he should do to his.

Anyone have a link or advice to keeping a 6.4 on the road?

Thanks,

I think he should just drive it and not mess with it.

thanks Geoff for trying to spend more of my money.

Yup. The 6.4L is actually a great engine, but you need to religiously keep up with maintenance. I would follow the Severe Duty guidelines regardless of how you use the truck.

Other than that he should be good to go. If he doesn't mind risking his warranty I'd also recommend doing a DPF delete. Getting that potato out of the exhaust and killing the regeneration process is one of the best things you can do for these trucks.
