7.3 to a new 6.7

I just sold my 2000 7.3 which I thought I would keep forever! that truck never let me down, I just hope this new 6.7 will be as dependable, does anyone know of any week points on the 13's? I have read about the early ones had turbo issues and a few had the engines blow, I hope they have that sorted out by now.

Thank's , I,m pretty excited about it, I have been rolling that 7.3 for going on 13 years, never one major problem out of that one, I have just been waiting for a reliable new superduty, and with the current ford rebates I couldn't resist,

I did the same thing. So far so good. I don't see the need for any mods on the new one the way I did on the 7.3

You certainly don't need any mod's, until you drive one that has them, then WOW! what a difference, and also are supposed to pick up a few mpg with the tuner and exhaust, my mpg drops to like 12 when the dpf regens, and my old 7.3 modded had more power than the stock 6.7, we can't have that!

I've only had mine since April and only have about 7k on it and no mechanical issues yet. The Sync on the other hand has a mind of its own and yes I did the update. Used to have problems with the phone and stereo. Now they work fine that the navigation sucks. Go figure.
