Thinking of trading in my 08 6.4 on a 12 6.7

Looking for some guidance here. I have an '08 6.4 with a 4" Flo-Pro full dpf/doc delete exhaust and H&S Minimaxx with the HD tunes. I've had the truck since new but it's starting to cost me too much money in repairs. It only has 158 000 km but its been used as a real truck. I'm contemplating trading it in on a 2012 6.7. Is the 6.7 a good motor? Is it as good as my deleted 6.4?

Also, I would most likely update my Minimaxx to use on the 6.7. What kind of power gains should I expect with the 6.7 compared to my 6.4? Will it have the same capabilities as far as shift on the fly, trans tunes, etc.?

My fiancÚ said if I buy the truck, I can't put my Minimaxx and a straight pipe on it. She likes the idea of having a valid warranty lol. With that said, how does the 6.7 run in stock form compared to my 6.4?

Stock 6.7 compared to stock 6.4. The 6.7 has better fuel economy And has more power then the 6.4 also the 6.7 is a towing beast compared to a 6.4

Is it as reliable in stock form as my 6.4 with a tuner and straight pipe?

Stock for stock, the 6.7 is more powerful, refined, and just an overall more advanced truck. If you're comparing the 6.4 tuned to a stock 6.7 its going to be nowhere near as powerful as your 6.4. Even tuned, the 6.7 won't be where the 6.4 is power-wise.

The power on the 6.7, to me seems to come on a lot smoother. Even the 6.4 stock from what I remember lagged at take off, then the power came on really harshly. The 6.7 is a nice smooth powerful curve stock, or tuned. To me, its a good thing, but it also makes it feel less quick.

I would say it's more reliable, I mean it has no extra power further than what the stock components were designed for. Plus the warranty would be nice. Don't kid yourself though, I can't imagine you'll be able to resist tuning it. I planned on it too, but mine was tuned in 2 weeks.

i had a tuned and deleted 6.4 and traded ot in on a 2012 6.7 and do not regret it. the 6.4 definatley was faster but as far as towing my 15,000 lb trailer my 6.7 does just as good as the tuned and deleted 6.4 and gets the same mileage towing as well. i won't delete mine just because of the emissions in utah. if you get a short bed beware of the small fuel tanks that is the only thing i regreted until i installed a titan.
