6.4 or 6.0?

Hey guys I'm debating on what truck to get when I get done with bootcamp and all my training next year. I should be done around Jan but gunna wait till around June to buy a truck. Unless I see a deal before hand. I've been thinking on a 6.0 05+. But my buddy just bought a 6.4 nice truck. And a lot of power. So I'm thinkin I might just be better off buyin a 6.4 because with a tuner that's all that power I'd ever need. I'm planing on spending 15-22g for a 6l don't really wanna pay more than 18g. And I've been looking and there prices are through the roof lately almost as much as acouple 6.4s I've seen. For around 22-23 that I could probably talk down some. Any advice about either trucks? One other thing what tuners can you run the 6.4 deleted with? Seems like 1300 bucks on a tuners gunna be what is goin to be spent. Didn't know if there was a cheaper alternative.

Well dude that's where I was a month ago. I drove about 10 6.0's and 2 6.4s. The 6.0s are plenty responsive and drive just fine. However, once I sat in the 6.4, the interior is WAAAAY nicer. Honestly, once you get over the motor, what would you rather sit in? I also got dual leather power seats. I just like the dash and interior of the 6.4.

Since it will be almost a year before you buy a truck, I would just not worry about it now though. A lot will change in a year. Since you'll be in the service, you probably won't have much time or space to do the maintenance. When I was in, there's no way I had the time to keep up on a diesel. That was mostly contributed to my sailor buddies, beer, and being underway!

Yea that's what I'm thinking the interior on the 6l is kinda out dated and I don't wanna buy one and then want a 6.4 the whole time. So I'm hoping I can find a 6.4 for the right price. And yea my buddie is all leather it's so nice. And I will be reserves becuz I'm having a family. But I may activate. I'd just have the gf drive it if need be but and thanks!

Oh then get one. I paid $20k for mine. Had 130k miles, runs like a top, bone stock FX4. Only problem is the cd changer is jacked. I haven't found a single 2008 6.4 F250 in my area for less than $32000 except for this one. Good luck buddy...

I haven't deleted mine yet. My Blackstone oil report only showed a trace of fuel in my oil and no coolant after I bought the truck. Good so far.

Bang for the buck..Looks and Power...6.4! Do all your deletes, EGR elbow and a H&S or Spartan tune and you're golden. Splurge and get your upper charge pipe also. 562hp and 1200 flbs. without the up pipe on a Spartan 310 tune. Loving it!

Depends where you live. If you have to do emissions I would vote the 6.0. Otherwise, I wouldn't trade me tuned 6.4 for any other truck.
