Ford plans power increase to over 800lbs-ft!

According to new details we've received from our sources, a high output version of the 6.7 is expected to produce approximately 400 horsepower and at least 800 pounds-feet of torque, when production of Job 2 2011 Super Duty pickups starts later this year.

Then it goes on to say-Will early adopters of Ford's 2011 Super Duty be able to upgrade to the new power figures after the expected change? It's unclear. Our sources say there may be a few hardware changes in addition to a software upgrade for the engine control unit. I'll be pissed if we are not included in this deal!

No surprises here. I wonder what else will change on the 2011 Job 2 trucks? How's that new tranny working for everyone? So far so good, eh?

Oh man!!! It is gerrrrate!!

I got to tow my 5er for the first time with the '11 this past weekend, and the extra power over my '08 is nice but the tranny is a homerun!!

Night and day difference over the '08!!

That would suck, but it's no worse than the poor guys who bought 2010 Mustangs at 315hp when the next year Ford dropped a 305hp v6 and 412hp V8.

they prolly started low to see how the engine would do then mod it for more power after seeing what it can do once it was bought. and repair trends.

this seems normal for new models. thats why its generally best to wait till job 2 or 3 after its been out forawhile.

a poster on that site:


Just thought I would post that last Friday I was at my local dealer getting the oil changed in my truck. I saw a Red 2010 F-250 on a lift. They had the motor tore down to the block.

I went to look at what was up, I saw that in the passenger side bank of cylinders, all had metal shavings in them, the last cylinder also was melted down, the dome in the middle of it was closer to flat. The service tech was also in the office arguing with an engineer, evidently the service tech wanted a new motor ASAP, so he could get the truck back to the customer. But the engineer wanted somebody to look at the motor before it was replaced.

I'm just suggesting wait another year or so before you buy a new Ford PS.

Edit: it was a 2011 Ford, new body style, new 6.7.

In that article the poster later clarified that it was a 2011 on the rack. Why Ford would want to examine the motor before repalcing it since they are getting it back anyway is beyond me. If the dealer goofs the diagnosis, then Ford doesn't pay for the service so I doubt that the dealer would want to be on the hook for a new 6.7. We still dont know what the issue was with this motor. Any other info or ideas?
