5.4L or 6.4L in Superduty
Hey guys. Looking into getting a Superduty. I like the look of the 08-2010's. Most likely either a Supercab or Crewcab. Primary use is going to be for work and mostly just daily commuting to and from jobs. So the truck will be towing a trailer and hauling crap in the bed.
I've been looking around for a used one and just debating on what engine choice to get. I've heard alot of things about the unreliability of the 6.4's, but also here that the 5.4's in the superdutys have a lack of power. Whatever engine i get, i will do the usually modifications (eg. exhaust, programmer, intake, etc.) There are alot of Superduty's in the area that have the 5.4's, but i dont know how much power it'll have, especially with the weight of a 3/4 ton truck.
I love the thought of a diesel, but unsure because of all the problems i have heard the 6.4's have. If i get a SD w/ a 6.4L, what milage should i be looking at? most ones i have found have over 100,000km's on em' and dont know if that is to high or not. Especially considering the damage it might have with the stock components still on it. I'm just skeptical that if i get a 6.4 with that many km's it'll have to many problems even after i delete the DPF, CAT, EGR, etc.
Sorry for the long post. Lol. Any help would be great!
