That article is very interesting. I wish they would have tested all three major diesels side by side though. I think that would have shut down a lot of comments.
One thing that really stood out to me was the fact that Ford went after "real" power that we can use to pull our loads with and not just a "number" to print in the adds. The job 2 reflash corrected power at RPMs we use everyday. It puts power right where we need it - on the ground and not in some article in a magazine!!
I have had the reflash done to my truck and the engine inprovements are slight at the seat of the pants level but will be huge once I get hooked to my trailer. The transmission upgrades are fantastic though and could be felt as soon as I started driving!!
I could tell immediately 'seat of the pants' the extra torque just rolling off top dead center. I had the same experience when I hooked up to the 15k fifth wheel...the increased torque/hp was evident all the way thru
the rpms... kinda makes you wonder. With this many happy, satisfied 6.7 owners who will not want to part with their 6.7s, what incentives will there be in 2012 to move the new units???
