how many of you guys used to have a 6.0?

How does the 6.4 compact overall? And how do they compare from a reliability stand point?

power wise the 6.4 is the winner stock or tuned. interior upgrades and styling is nice. the body style looks good. as far as reliability goes that just depends on what you do with it. my 6.0 was tuned, egr deleted, and exhaust and never really had any problems. my 6.4 is deleted with an h&s and hasnt been any problems either. if you plan to leave the dpf on the truck is where you run into issues. the dpf system is really the only failure point on the 6.4. it creates a lot of stress on the motor so when you delete it, it frees up alot of power and makes the truck very reliable and a runner thats for sure. down side is tuners are expensive and if you dont delete you may run into reliability issues depending on how you drive. only thing i miss about my 6.0 is the sound of it.

Yeah i do love the sound of my 6.0. I have a studded n deleted 6.0 witha powermaxx n 190 injectors. The the 6.4 I was considering is studded n deleted with a h&s n a built trans n he says new turbos n 60% injectors so im trying to get more details on it.

My 6.0 is a lariat n the 6.4 is a xlt both with the same mileage. Im just trying to decide if I wanna make the switch. The thing that scares me is I know how well my truck runs n when u buy a new vehicle u always r kind of blind folded at first.

My 6.0pulls hard n if I were to get another truck I wouldnt want it to pull less then what mine does now yakno?

What made you decide to keep the 6.0 over the 6.4?

Part of it was towing my 5er, this has nothing to do with the powerhouse but my 6.0 is a LB dually, the 6.4 was a SB single with a lift and 35s so I prefered the dually for towing. As far as the engine, there was just too many issues with these engines and one is the HPFP witch is known to be weak. Mine went out before I sold it and I had to lift the cab to change it. Lucky for me it was a fail solenoid valve on the pump rather than an exploded pump which sends shrapnel all through the fuel system and turns into a very expensive fix. I sold the truck with a new HPFP on it to a friend and less than a year later, he was doing the same repair again. I am just more comfortable working on the 6.0. I dont have to lift the cab for most repairs but on a 6.4 you cant do much without lifting the cab.

If you replace the stock lift pump with an airdog does the cab have to be removed? If you do this before the stocker lets go I assume you don't have to replace the fuel lines etc?

No you don't need to lift the cab. It can be installed by dropping the tank or removing the bed.

So the stock lift pump is what sends the metal thru the lines correct? Which is a better pump FASS or AD? I know the cummins guys had a lot of trouble with AD.
