Blowing rods???

I'm a 7.3 owner but I love l love all
Fords. I haven't heard many bad things about the new motor. I want it to be a great motor because I plan on getting one in the future. I was reading some post on people tuning these 6.7 and blowing rods on anything more then a tuner. Is this true and I also hear a rumor that ford is going to redesign the motor in 2015 to fix the troubled areas. ??? Again I want the best for this engine i want one eventually just doing some research

If it's from the guy I'm thinking of then don't trust anything he has to say. He's a die hard hater of the 6.7 and he's a 6.4 lover and all he ever does is go in the 6.7 forum and piss everyone off.

The rods blowing are a very very small issue. The only trucks I've heard of blowing rods had twin turbos on them. This engine is very new and everyone is still learning it. Personally, I think the tuners need to kill the bottom end on these things and put a slower spooling turbo on that doesn't hit so hard on the bottom. While it's a fun *** ride with 800+tq below 2000rpm, it's very hard on parts coming up on power that fast.

I don't visit that site anymore specifically for that reason.

From what I've read about this, it was a few isolated instances where the tuning was as much to blame as the additional turbo for the rod failures. In my travels around the Powerstroke sites, I do not recall reading about a rod blowing through the block with just tuning, or stock for that matter.

I'd probably worry more about the turbo letting go than the rods.

What read was like unsaid twin turbo set up. Plus it wasn't custom tuning it was just generic tuning not custom or even tweaked for the twin set up

No one said anything about warranty work...... This was about the strength of the 6.7, not what will happen if it's tuned and needs work.
