would you do it again?

I'm looking at buying a 2008 or ccsb f250 with 86k mikes on it all stock. First off I'm unfamiliar with this motor so anything I should look for. And secondly for those that have or had a 6.4 would you buy one again. Pros and cons

The only thing I hate about mine is the fuel mileage compared to the other models (duramax, cummins, 6.7 psd)

2010 CC/SB FX4 Lariat.. Tuned By Eric@IDP and Matt@Gearhead

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

I just sold my 6.4 with 142k miles and got a 1 owner 7.3 CCSB 2x4 with 98k miles and couldn't be happier, piece of mind. My 6.4 was a bad mf'er don't get me wrong, but you better have deep pockets if you don't have a warranty.

I really liked my 6.4 but if I did it again I would go with a pre emissions diesel or 6.7 psd. The 6.4 is a beast and I miss the power but not having a warranty anymore and the epa crap is what made me give it up.

I currently own a 2008 ccsb 4x4 with 197xxx mi, on original engine. I will buy one again, but I will make sure to delete all the epa stuff like I have with mine. I've had mine deleted since around 100k+ miles and has been running great since. But in all honesty, If I had the choice of keeping my current superduty, I will purchase a 2011+ superduty with the 6.2 xlt, and use it to go offroading.

I would buy another one. I for sure dont have deep pockets, but i did all my deletes from the get go. i dont drag race. and for the rest i think a little bit of luck. You can have a good one or bad one with any of the models.
I do really like the 6.7. and if I ever get rid of this truck it will be that model. and i probably would just do a lift and wheels/tires and forget all the tunes and etc..........well I say that anyway! Ford really needs to increase there warranty to 100k miles like dodge and silverado is.

I just started working at a Ford dealer and the diesel guy who I've been talking to a lot said they hardly ever pull the cab to do 6.4 repairs. He said he's done turbos, HPFP, up-pipes, oil coolers, etc., all without removing the cab. He said he's even pulled the motor cab on...

I love my 6.4 (I can complain about the fuel mileage but it's an 8000lb + vehicle) and I didn't buy it for fuel mileage! ...it has 197k on the original motor and has only had a handful of warranty repairs...nothing major.
