Re: most dependable ford diesel?
I believe that we can all say that in stock form the answer is 7.3 hands down.
The 6.0, all it needs is egr delete, BPD oil cooler, FICM by Ed, Edge Insight, and fuel psi gauge. That is as long as you don't tune it. If tuning get some studs. Oh yea and a quality synthetic oil that is changed often.
I loved my 6.0 truely wish that I could have found another one that I liked for the right price in the time frame that I had. If I would have I would not have a 6.7.
The 6.4, I have seen way way to many cracked pistons and holes in blocks from pistons flying out. They make stupid power but you could not pay me to own one.
The 6.7, the C&C and some 2011 trucks have had h3ll with turbo's failing. You have to be real picky about where you get your fuel from. If the CP4 pumps goes out and Ford won't cover it, that's a $11k bill to fix. Also I think that we can all agree that this platform has the most power in stock form.
My 6.7 has just over 10k on it and I have not had a problem one out of it, it is completely stock. I will delete and Spartan tune @ 36k when the bumper to bumper warranty runs out. May I say that is is the best towing vehicle that I have ever towed with.
This is my opinion on the 3 motors, take it as you wish.
