6.7 tear down

I know lots of people have mixed reviews about this guy, but it's cool to see the internals of these engines.

thanks for posting that. No matter what people's opinions are of that guy, it's nice to see the guts. I'm a little shocked to see the smaller rods, but maybe they either learned some stuff on materials or decided that the big ones were overkill. After all, lighter weight rotating assy components equals power.

I love this guy. He's very informative and downright hilarious at times. I kept sending him messages on YouTube asking him to post videos on how to "bulletproof" a 6.7 Powerstroke, but I was happy when he posted this video. Hopefully, he will keep coming out with videos with helpful information on our trucks.

FWIW, I read that one of the improvements on the '15s are larger more beefier rods

Neat.

Does the turbo in the 2014 s still have ceramic bearings?

Good video. Good for a warm and fuzzy...except for the turbo and rods.

The connecting rods in the existing 6.7L are as big as they need to be to support the engine output. The 2015 6.7L output has been raised so it follows that the size of the rods was increased to support a higher engine output. I would not chalk that up to an "improvement", just a function of raising the engine output. It could probably be said that there is not much design margin built into the existing 6.7L though.
