Thumbs up First legit 6.4 problems....

So I own 3 of them, 2 - 10's, and an '08. I've had issues with my Harley, but this far not 'legit' ones. The dealer messed things up last year big time, and cost themselves a new computer in my truck ... Aside from that it's been ok.
In my '08 I did the rad 2 yrs ago, and the belt tensioner and heated seat element last month.
Lucky me, I just had to do the same things to my Harley last week, and to top it off, they tell me my rad looks like it will need to be done soon!

If that's the worst that happens, I'm never selling them!!!

I've had 2 '04 6.0's, and did the head gasket in both of them!! And each time they figured a way out to screw me out of my warranty!!

I LOVE my 6.4's!!

And it doesn't hurt that wi my mini max I'm close to 600 hp either!!!!!:

Thats awesome man.

I love to hear that these babys put out close to 600 hp when a few mods are done.

I cant wait to delete mine. In the meantime though I may get a Bullydog.
I Dont have to do a delete with it and gain aprox. 100 hp.

Its a far cry from the 300 additional you get when deleting but it will have to do until I reach about 100,000. Only have 17,000 on her right now.

Glad to hear you have had few problems.

I would highly advise against any dpf ON tuning. Read around here, dpf ON tuning increases the frequency of regeneration and increases the potential of a clogged DFP
Just my .02

The good thing about BullyDog is that it does not increase the regen process.

Diesel power installed one in their new 2011 F250 and said that the best thing about the BullyDog tuner was that it did not increase the regen's.

Never owned one so I cant say myself but that is what was said in Diesel Power. Good Clean Tune without having to delete the DPF and did not increase the regen. At least on the urea based 2011.

nullster, I'm in the same predicumate as you. I have a 2010 with 8500 miles and don't want to void any of my motor/drivetrain warranty. I don't have the extra $5-10k to put into vehicle repairs if something were to happen. If there is a tune to help wiith power and mpg some w/o having to remove the dpf I'd be interested in it. Right now my truck is very sluggish at take of with 37's.

You could always put the dpf back on if you go in for warranty work. Its not that bad of a swap. Then again I just had warranty deny me a head gasket repair because of oversized tires. Bastards! It was a pricey warranty that I purchased when I bought my truck used. I did raise enough hell to get a full refund back but the head gasket repair is coming out of my pocket. From what I hear tuners like the bully dog leave a foot print on the pcm while H&S and Spartan tuners virtually leave no trace unless they really dig for it.

I realize it can be swapped before taking to tge dealer, but what happens if it brakes down and you have to get it towed to a dealer?

How would oversized tires Cause a blown head gasket? These trucks should have more than enough torque to handle bigger tires. Think they gave you the shaft on that one. Lol

I hear ya HighOn22's. Same deal here. I may go to the H&S tuner for now and run as smoke free of tune that the tuner will allow until I get past the warranty. Then go full delete.
