thinking about buying a 6.4

So guys I am thinking about getting a 6.4. Split between that and a 6.6 duramax. Just trying to see what if any concerns are with the 6.4 I know obliviously look at the normal mechanical stuff just trying to see if there was anything else. Thanks

Stay with ford cabs are way better/bigger and GMs are cheap on the inside and ride like poop compared to a 6.4 I have a GM and I'm switching to a Ford it's what my dad used to drive so I'm sticking with what the old man swore by
6.6s might be nice but you'll hate the cab going from a ford to a GM

The 6.4 is a beast of a truck. Are you planning on leaving it stock or tuning it?

I vote for the 6.4, as long as you plan on deleteing. It is a great motor without all of the crap on it.

More then likely tuner, exhaust, air filter... What all needs to be deleted? Been kinda reading about this but it's like Spanish coming from a 7.3

You're headed in the right direction. No two ways about it, you have to get rid of the DPF (Tuned will do that for you). Also if you plan on keeping the truck for the long haul, I suggest an EGR delete, coolant filter kit and a CCV mod. If you do this, your 6.4 will be very reliable with more power than you will ever need towing. When the 6.4 is deleted, I believe it rivals the 7.3

With that said, I have owned two 7.3's, one 5.9 Cummins and one 6.4, and the 6.4 is my favorite so far with my 5.9 right behind it. However, the ford is the best overall package.

What he said^^

Delete the DPF/DoC, EGR, do the CCV mod, coolant filter, intake, and tuner an you will e set for a long long time.

Oh and regular maintenance is a MUST! Oil changes, fuel filter changes, water fuel separator draining...

Maintenance is critical with these motors. Do NOT cheap out on the maintenance, or it will cost you more down the road. The truth is all "New" diesels require much more maintenace than the older motors did.

Yes I do plan on keeping it for awhile.

What is the EGR delete?
Also is the CCV mod the same as the 7.3?

IFS on a 3/4 or 1 Ton truck

My buddy has an 07 D-Max.... really nice truck inside, but it has gone though ball joints like crazy 6" RCD lift with 90k miles on it....
He drove my truck for couple days while I did some work on his, He really liked mine, even though mine is only lifted 4" ProComp he liked the way mine drove being lifted....

Drive them both and see what you think, bashing stuff doesnt matter anymore.... its what you feel comfortable driving Of course you should be able to get a GOOD bit of $$$ for you 02 PSD!!!
I came from a modded 7.3 as well and the 6.4 is UNREAL on what can be done with JUST a tune!!! and it's quiet running too!!!
First week I drove my 6.4 I though it kept turning off at stop lights due to it being sooo much more quiet than my 7.3!!!

Good luck!!
