Possibly purchasing a powerstroke??

Thinking about adding a 2015 powerstroke to the garage anybody know if the new turbos they are supposed to come with will be dramatically better than the ones currently in the 6.7s? And also iv heard some 6.7s dropping valves is this a known issue?

Hi d1rty, Yes if I'm not mistaken, the turbo going on the 15s is basically the Garrett Powermax which has been a great turbo on the 6.0.

As for dropping valves, this was mainly a problem on the 2011 cab-n-chassis trucks.

The fact they're changing the fuel system and turbo on the 2015 would actually make me take a good look at the 2013/2014 trucks due to the current system being pretty much tested and worked out.

Dealers are pushing leftover 2012-2013 trucks with heavy discounts plus incentives, and 0% financing if you qualify. Much less incentive on 2014s. I think the 2015's are going to be pricy when they first hit the market.

2015 powerstroke uses 6.0 turbo?

Does the 2015 powerstroke really utilize a 6.0 powerstroke turbo? Is this benefiting? How much??
