Just bought an 08 6.4 - Advice please
Last night I purchase an '08 6.4 F350. This truck is bone stock for now but I can already feel how much more power it had over my '07 6.0. It's super quiet too! The truck was originally sold in July 2007.
I plan to go through it over the next year or 2 and perform the necessary upgrades as described in the sticky thread by CountryAggie.
I've been researching this forum for a couple of months in preparation for my purchase and now that I have the truck I have a couple questions I hope the community can help answer.
I notice that it doesn't have a button to turn off TCS. There is only the 4wd switch and backup sensor off button, nothing else in that area. Last night on gravel, I punched the throttle to see if TCS would kick in and it didn't. My Dad's 08 with V10 has a TCS button so I'm perplexed. Could it be that I don't have TCS? That would be great if it doesn't.
Also, the question on tuners. If I perform the upgrades described in CountryAggie's thread, I'll need a tuner that can disable the functions in the computer so I don't get codes. I see that Spartan makes them but requires you to fill out a form stating offroad use only. I also see that H&S no longer makes tuners to do this. The used H&S tuners seem to run about $1200. Are there other options? I like the idea of a tuner with a dispaly like the SCT livewire.
Thanks in advance. There is so much useful information on this forum. Sometimes it is difficult to locate and digest it all.
