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.

So far the 13's have been sweet.

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,

Congrads on the upgrade. I did the same thing. I traded my 2001 7.3 for a 2011 6.7! Below is a pic of the ole 7.3 and like you, I thought I would have it forever.

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

I have 36k miles on my '12 6.7. Not one single problem with it. The powa that is has stock is astonishing. I will be ordering my MM, egr delete, straight pipe, and s&b today. Can't wait for the big brown truck to get here.

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.
