This truck is not mine. I have no intention on buying a 2011. This truck died after a test drive with the customer and salesman sitting with it idling just going over some of the features. I am Surprised that Ford did not take the truck back and have it repaired at a training center. This is a very small dealership and this is the only 2011 6.7 they have had on the lot. But someone will end up buying this truck most likely without knowing that the motor has been changed. I had already heard about some cam problems with the 6.7 but not many are talking about this.


I mainly posted pictures to give everyone some the idea what the new 6.7 looks like under the skin. Maybe I was a little harsh with the title.

With the EGR Cooler mounted where it is it will be easy to remove.

Gee people have the moderators delete this thread. Just wanted everyone to see some of the components of the 6.7. I had the short block replaced in mine back in 2004 and still driving it.

Looks like fun, I'm not sure why everyone is getting all worked up over what he posted.

Ford is replacing the entire engine? how dare them! They should have the techs break down the engine part by part, make the dealership languish for replacement service parts, and just show an overall lack of consideration in light of they have better things to do. But no! Ford dropped what they were doing, drop shipped an entire $7k engine to the dealership in record time to correct the problem once they were made aware of the issue.

New trucks may have issues and if I were a customer, I'd be tickled pink if Ford sent a brand new motor for a part failure.

I'd say these ARE pictures that Ford wants us to see.

Way to go Ford in stepping up!
