worth trading my 6.0 for a 6.4

Thinking of trading up to a 2008 f-250 with a 6.4 since I have spent over $7,000 in repairs on my 6.0 in the last 30,000 miles replaced #2 injector twice think it is time to get rid of the truck. What do I need to look at on a 6.4 and what are the common problems with them?

My question to you is why you replaced the same injector without finding out the cause....
Do you know your FICM volts?
Do you know your deltas?
What is your pressure inside your degas bottle?
Do you have an EGR Delete?


Sorry, but without the knowledge ANY vehicle will give you issues.

I'd bail on the 6oh. 6.4s are going for super cheap

Get the 6.4. My dad has the 6.0 and he has had quite a few problems too. He takes great care of it and hardly pulls anything. His truck is the reason I got my 6.4. The downside of the 6.4 is by far the fuel mileage. Good luck with your decision.

I live on base and rarely go off, but I average 9.7-10.8 hand calculated. I went on a road trip and averaged 13.7 at 75mph empty.

My 6.0 has been great ,, and I didn't do a 6.4 three years ago because they were iffy being new and un proven ..

now I wouldn't hesitate to get a 6.4 if something happened to this great 6.0

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

Go for it, the 6.4L has a ton of potential. With the proper mods and maint. it will be a very reliable motor.
