6.7L Engine a Lemon or ?

I have only been a member a short time (After I ordered a New '14 F-350 w/ the 6.7L) I was looking for owners views & input on this engine. All though I have learned a bit (R&R Fuel filter tips, etc) It seems alot of the owners of these engines are less than pleased. With this engine now in it's 4th year of production (June/July of 2010) I would think the bugs/kinks have been worked out. This New truck (Delivery in a few weeks) will replace my 2000 F-350 w/the 6.8 V-10. I keep my truck's stock, and I am some what anal about maintance Example: on the new 6.7, 1st 500-1000 miles LOF, then after the next 2000 miles LOF w/ 5w40 stythetic and every 4000 miles after, Air & Fuel filters every 10,000 miles -Max- With this type of P/M and No Tuners, Chips. Boosting, Etc My Hope is it will be as dependable as the 2000. Any other owners of this engine out there, am I on the right track for long term trouble free ownership?

I would just drive it and not worry. People spend way to much time worrying these days. I have had mine about 5-6 weeks with about 2500 miles on it and they have been trouble free. All I have done is put fuel in it. I plan on changing the oil every 5K and the fuel filters between 10-15k or so. Truck is stock and will more than likely remain that way. Maybe a level and slightly larger tires but we will see. The vast majority do not post in a forum about what they like and do not like or problems with this engine. I see a ton of these trucks on the hwy in my area and none on the side of the road. Dont hardly see any chevy or dodges either. Good luck...

Thanks for the positive feed back, the fuel you use?, is it Diesel #2, or Premium Diesel or a BIO-Diesel Blend (5%-20%) a Shell dealer here has Reg #2 Diesel (48 Cetane) & Premium Diesel (55 Cetane) it's my understanding that a higher Cetane rated Diesel fuel can increase MPG on some engines. The Premium is only .03 cents more per Gallon in Mid- Michigan. In your Ford Manual does it address the Cetane rating or ranges for this 6.7L engine?, the way it would for a Gas engine regarding Octane. Also I know your engine is still new, but what is your Avg. MPG* now w/ the type of fuel your using.

* 4x2 or 4x4, 3.55 or 3.73 axle, SRW or DRW

Other Cetane fuel rating : B20 is 50
: Synthetic Diesel 55
Neither is available in my area.
