6.4 motor?

hey guys been thinking about trading in my 6.0 for a 6.4, my buddies got a 08 6.4 beautiful truck has a little over 50k on it H&S tuner exhaust and intake. Unfortunately about a week ago it started dumping white smoke took it to the local ford dealer, and they just got back to him saying there's no compression in cylinder 1 and its prolly a rod. Say hes gonna have to replace the whole block. What im wondering is this a common problem/know problem for just adding the common power adders or just really bad luck?

You hear about this every now and then. If you're going to do the DPF delete, it's worth doing a full EGR delete for reliability and longevity purposes.

sounds like bad luck. I don't really see how a rod yields zero compression though.

ya if i do end up trading i was gonna do exhaust, intake, tuner, egr delete, and then was thinking of even getting the sperrco (I think thats how its spelled) intercooler. Is the intercooler even worth getting? or just for guys with aftermarket turbos.

mabie it was a valve? and it probably damaged the rod or something, he didnt quit explain it in to much depth. He said they did run tests and there is definitly no compression in cylinder 1.

I wouldnt worry about an Intercooler unless your building the engine and trans for serious power, the stock intercooler is still pretty decent.

If anythign you prolly want to get the 3inch intercooler upgrade hose. Faster sppol up times and cooler EGTs then stock hose. Its about 150 on PTPs site.

If its just a daily driver just delete the Dpf and cat and drive it. Maybe an egr delete. If you buy all these mods and all you do is drive your truck like 99% of people you're wasting your money. Im a poor boy and I run h&s mini maxx and 5"flo-pro downpipe back exhaust and have had 0 issues. If you race alot then i would worry about coolers and pipes ect. Ill catch he'll for saying this but some people just want to make money on you. Ill take the heat tho.

I like your style bro LOL.

Im about to pull the trigger on the Mini Max, 5inch exhaust and S&B CAI from PTP. Prolly place the order next Tuesday.

Thats all i did to my 6.0 and loved her but just couldnt get past the older intieror from trading in my 06F150. I finally told the wife, i need an 08 truck, i gotta have the new interior since i spend at least 2 hours a day just drving to work LOL

I hear that man the 08-10 are nice. I love hi performance as much as the next guy but some people have fat wallets. I use my truck hard but I've yet to need a chrome plated return line while pulling a dozer...if you know what I mean.
