first core shipment of 6.4s

We're about to building and selling them soon. Parts are no longer Ford direct only. I can't wait to rip these puppies apart and see what their trouble areas are. First impression looks like a6.0 on steroids.

I work at a production engine facility, similar to Jasper, but we only rebuild diesel long blocks to save people money. 7.3, 6.0, and now 6.4 Powerstrokes, DT466's, B and C series Cummins, 6.6 LB7, LLY and LBZ Duramaxes, 3126 Caterpillars, so on and so on. I bore and hone the blocks and prep them, but I use to run the disassembly and cleaning area. Ripping them apart, running them through the oven, shot blasting, magnafluxing, and washing all the bolts. All our equipment and tooling is top self, GOFF shot blaster, Sunnen SV-10 hone, Rottler Boring Bar, Rottler SG8 seat and guide machine, Aladdin spray cabinets, ect, ect. So yeah, hope that clears everything up.

Hard to say, since we sell long blocks, which is for those who don't know what a long block is, its the block, rotating assembly(crank, rods, pistons, cam) heads, rocker boxes, and valve train. Our 6.0's sell for $4400 with ARP head studs( Blackwater Engines - Remanufactured Ford, International, Navistar, - 6.0L PowerStroke Diesel), Ford sells theirs around $11,000 not installed, without head studs(Buy 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty Parts | FordParts.com). If you swap your stuff over to the new engine yourself, you save $5,600 bucks right off. So yeah, we are talking a lot of money.

So you are going to sell 6.4 motors? It seems broken rockers are a kind of common issue. I broke 2 at about 80,000 miles.
