6.0 versus 6.4

I drive a 2004 6.0. Today I was riding in a 2008 6.4 as a passenger we took off from a dead stop after the driver stepped on the pedal telling me how much power the 6.4 had. I was thrown back in my seat and still cant believe the power diffrence from the 6.0 to the 6.4.

when I step on my pedal I get a lag then accelerate but not like the 6.4. Is this common with the two diffrent motors? Both trucks are stock. Just curious.

The main difference is the fact that the 6.0 has one large turbo for when the motor get's up to speed whereas the 6.4 has 2 turbos, one to help right off idle and the other for when it gets up to speed.

That alone makes the 6.4 seem so much more powerful compared to the 6.0 even before you start comparing the HP/TQ numbers.

I'd rather have a 6.0 though. Much easier to work on.

No it isn't mine. My work has both trucks and the mechanics all say the 6.0 is much easier to work on.
