Advice needed

I'm new to the forum and hoping you guys can help point me in the right direction. I belong to the volunteer ambulance in my town and we're investigating buying a new vehicle. Due to the fact the 6.0L is plauged with problems, we are leaning toward the 6.4L F450.

I need some advice on the 6.4L - any experiences, reliability reports, etc. would be great. Are we on a more reliable path with the 6.4L?

Also, we currently have a 2003 E450 with a turbo diesel that is extremely underpowered. It can't maintain speed going up hills, which makes me think we have a potential turbo problem.

Any advice/experience you have will be appreciated.

i wouldnt completearetly rule out the 6.0, the later models are more dependable than the 03-04 modles, i cant speak on the 6.4, i havent fooled with one yet.
