6.4l or 6.7l

I own a 01eclb 7.3 and i would like to go to a ccsb truck. Now that the 6.7 has been out for a bit and theres been time to pay and learn about it. Do i go for a 6.4 or a 6.7. I plan on using the truck for dd and light towing and seld pulls on the weekend once in a while. Dont wanna pay to much of 30k for a truck. I here the 6.4l is crazy when tuned and my new truck will be deleted and tuned. So help me out here guys.

The tunes out there for the 6.4 can put it up higher than the 6.7 can get, but I've here the 6.7 has fewer recalls and issues than the 6.4 so far

6.4 if power is more important than mileage. Deleting fixes most issues with the 6.4 and you won't blow a turbo like the 6.7s are having trouble with.

If your gonna tune a 6.0,6.4,or a 6.7. Go with spartan running. All the do is 6.0 6.4 and 6.7. U can download tunes straight from the little control module u mount on ur dash. They r defiantly the way to go. But that's just my opinion.

I love my 6.4 but i cant really give my opinion since i have never driven a 6.7. If you do not plan on deleting then i would not recommend a 6.4.

Exactly! If you plan to leave it stock, get a 6.7, a stock 6.4 gets crap mileage. But the 6.4 tuned and deleted is a beast! It has a strong built bottom end. On a stock motor I hit 52-53 psi boost when getting on it hard from a stop light. All I've heard and seen on this forum since the 6.7 came out is blown turbos/ even on stock applications! The 6.7 is still so new I wouldn't buy one till the bugs are all worked out, but I too haven't driven one.
