6.4 Owners only

Ok so I sold my 6.0 today and I am thinking about getting a 6.4.

I want to know your personal experience with them and any problems you have had as well as modifications and if you feel they helped to mitigate problems or caused them.

Please no hearsay only YOUR personal experience.

Thank you very much for your feedback.

Ps. Please no discussion just what your experience is.

Find it, buy it, delete it, and enjoy the power. Although the 6.0's did sound better in IMO

I have an early 08 (03/07) with 107k miles on it. Currently it needs another radiator which will be the 2nd one since I've owned it. It's been tuned for probably 40k miles I think. I did blow the head gaskets running the 300 Hot Damn tune. It is a fast powerful truck that gets a ton of compliments. I have never owned a vehicle that people frequently tell me how good it looks.

Buy it Delete It

Despite what this may sound like I still recommend buying one, just read through to the end.

I see at least 3-4 Powerstroke 6.4L Diesel trucks a week for other than service maintenance. Most of the repair relate to the DPF & EGR emission systems, just last week we had 2 with 2 liters of fuel in the oil, 1 failed motor and one with the turbo y-pipe/u-pipe blown out at bellow which if not for the aftermarket 2 piece down-pipe would have been a cab off procedure.

1. Both fuel in oil situations were caused by fuel washing down the cylinder walls when trying to regen with a plugged solid DPF. Don't forget to change the oil after you do a DPF Delete!

2. Failed motor due to so much cylinder wash that one bank of cylinders had little compression left. So much blow by when we pulled the oil fill cap it was huffing like a freight train at 75,000kms.

3. Blown out turbo y-pipe/up-pipe caused by plugged solid DPF, exhaust has no where to go so blew out the up-pipe bellow.

So why would you buy one?

Because all the new trucks have DPF & EGR related issues, the Ford is one of the easiest ones to "fix" and when all is said and done the F350 is a more solid truck than the others.

I am all for a greener environment and these DPF systems and EGR systems are not going away but I sure wish they would stop using us as the Beta testers, these trucks are not cheap.

2 of the trucks are running great, the other one.... not so much

If anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Hope this helps
Dave

So if I get one a delete it I should be pretty reliable. That is unless I am running a 300hp tune.
