Interesting inside info
I was talking with a local 6.7 tec last week about the new motor, which he had nothing but praise for, and he told me a handy piece of info for the potential 6.7 buyer.
From what he said the trucks come from the factory de-tuned for the first 500 miles. Thus if you test drive one that's below that you really don't get the true appreciation for the advertised power. So for those of us aspiring to make the change, he advised to try like crazy to test drive one with over 500.
BTW, this power change happens automatically once 500 miles has turned on the clock. This is a separate upgrade of power from the re-flash that many already know about. And as a side note the reason that he likes the 6.7 so much is that they have not had one in the shop for any repairs yet, while they have done nearly (50) 6.4 motor replacements/rebuilds already.
