how are the new 6.7's

hey guys just curious to know how the 6.7s are, took a run by the local ford/dodge lot. yes they sell cummins and powerstrokes on the same lot, and dmaxes across the street lol but i was wondering how the 6.7's are holding up. my fathers interested in trading his 03 cummins in for one, but he's leary about the first year engine, and the DEF and all that. he loves his 03 because he can get in and drive and he doesnt worry about chit with it. its never needed an ounce of work done to it. im just wondering how the power of it is, how it holds up in daily driving, is it like the 6.0 where you gotta "excercise" the turbo? hows the fuel mileage and hows it respond to a tune. i dont know too much about the new diesels and the emissions and whatnot. i got a 99 cummins and as probably a few of you know ive been tryin to get rid of it for a powerstroke too lol. i got like 10 threads goin talkin about a trade i lined up. any thoughts?

Bought mine back in December. I only have 3700 mi thus far. So far, I LOVE it. This is my first diesel so I did tons of research before buying. I am still confident that I made the right decision.

Very pleased with mine so far....only 200 miles on it though.

Based on the number of posts in the "problems" forum, I think Ford did their homework on the in house 6.7. However, the motor is still very new to the market. Ford needs this motor to erase past 6.0 and 6.4 issues (both real and perceived) if they want to stay in the diesel game.

Love mine. Engine runs great. Mine has the 3.73 gears......15-16 highway and around town. If I slow down form 75/80 to 60, it'll get 16-17 highway.

Ditto....
a little over 46,000 miles...engine is starting to sound like its loosening up. Gobs of power, from stop to giving it the juice at about any highway speed. Pick your mileage with your right foot...

Still a magnet for people who like trucks, pulls my RV well...best truck I have owned..
