7.3<->6.0

curious why ford moved away from using the 7.3 to go with the 6.0 several years back. seems like the 7.3 was doing well.

the 7.3 would have never meet ever increasing emmisions standards....and you also could not put a egr system that was very efficient on the 7.3.....all of wich were government mandated things......they were pushed out of the 7.3....ford did not go away from it by choice.........Marc

ford 2.5L Turbo Diesel

http://www.ford.com.au/range/courier...wcabpickup.asp


i wonder how the emmissions stack up on the 2.5l. i looked around for info on it but could not find any stats. i guess i am wondering why ford does not have a small diesel available yet for smaller vehicles here in the states.

Interesting. This truck looks like a Ford Ranger crew cab to me.

ford has a motor out right now.... the 4.5 liter v-6.....it is only in the low cab foreward trucks as of right now.....but it was initially developed for the f-150.....but it had too much vibration to use.....it is a hybrid of the 6.0 and 6.5.....exact same block....with two cylenders cut off...twin turbo...high pressure oil run.........Marc

I believe that the Cummins engine will now be a 6.4 L.

Marc,

International could've put the same EGR system on the 7.3L as on the 6.0L, it was more what I has mentioned previously in that they (International) were trying to commonize the V8 block with the V6 block for "some" cost savings.
