Few 6.4L questions

Hey, new to this forum I usually harrass on duramaxforum seeing is how I own one but Ive been maybe looking at getting an 09-10 F-350 6.4L. I like the way they look and the stance of them and hear they are pretty stout with just the spartian tune and a exhaust. BUT, I know you have to pull the cab on them to do almost any work to them and I dont like to hear that. also can you run off road fuel in them? not asking if you think I should or the fine I can get but it wont leave me sittin along the road will it? the Dmax runs it no problem and has for 180k miles, love the truck but the IFS sucks and its been run like a dog since new and im ready for a change, also what flies apart on the 6.4's with a big tune and how long have the trannys been holding up? any major issues after 100k? sorry for all the questions, thanks Reger.

I put around 700-15oo miles on my truck every two weeks so it wont take long for me to get things to break so i;d like to have it taken care of before it does. I'd rather have a 6spd. manual how are the clutches taking the tunes?

I love mine but I have never tuned it or ran off road fuel in it so I am afraid I can not offer you any info.

From a reliability standpoint, I'd recommend an EGR delete in addition to a tuner. As for the cab having to come off for engine work, there certainly isn't much room underneath the hood. I've never used off road fuel but I don't see why you couldn't run off road fuel as it is still ULSD. Just dyed for easy identification as being off road fuel.

Thanks but I cant have a stock truck, stock just gets you home from the dealer, No one arounds here has a modded diesel other than a lift and cheap chips so whatever I have it doesnt take much to eat them up but I dont want to buy one of these trucks fill it up at the rig and put a big tune on it and have it sittin along the road the second day I own it. I slung the HG's out of my Dmax the second week I owned it and drove it like that for 60k miles dumb but it took it, dont wanna do that again.

Yeah, EGR, PCV reroute, 5in. exhaust, intake, tuned, leveled and 35's will be the first thing done before its drove, Just wondering if theres any other little things that come out these in a week like oil coolers, head gaskets, clutch, whatnot.

Yeah, EGR delete, DPF delete, PCV reroute, 5in. exhaust, downpipe (if needed) intake, tuned, leveled and 35's will be the first thing done before its drove, Just wondering if theres any other little things that come out these in a week like oil coolers, head gaskets, clutch, whatnot.

I mean a stock clutch can only hold so much. Mine held the Spartan 210 tune fine but the 250 fried it. Now i'm running a Southbend dual disk and the KEM 345 and it has held it without a problem.

thats not too bad, the ZF6 in the GMs won hold that stock, whats the dual disk cost gotta be cheaper and way easier to change than the autos.
