Possibly getting a 6.4

I'm thinking about trading my 2011 6.7 on a 2008 Lariat 6.4. Both my truck, and the truck I'm looking at are fully deleted. Anyone in here had experience with both motors? If so, good idea or bad idea?

If your going to a 7.3 or a 6.0, I wouldn't own a 6.4 or a 6.7 unless it had a warranty. 1) it's almost a given your gunna need it and 2) they're MUCH harder to work on than the 7.3 & 6.0, everything is crammed in there and they require cab off for more engine repairs. So the question to ask yourself is- Are you going to be doing the work on your truck or somebody else? If yourself, do you have a lift or equipment that enables you to do a cab off repair? Or do you have a warranty to cover the truck? But as you see on this forum, even people with warranties are still getting shafted and they didn't even mod their trucks!

EDIT: if you are ur own warranty company (cash truck fund) then have at it with a 6.4 or newer as they're fun trucks that can put down some serious power with just a few easy mods.

I've had great luck with 6.4s, much better than 6.0s lol. They aren't that hard to work on, just intimidating with everything that's stuffed under the hood. Contrary to popular belief, the cab doesn't have to come off for anything. Does it make it easier, yes, but necessary, no. It will have more power than the 6.7, but the biggest thing you will notice is a mpg drop. I rarely saw anything more than 14, with multiple different set ups. It reall comes down to what you want to do with the truck. I haven't been around the 6.7s much, but I would say as far as reliability, it probably a wash at 500hp. Anything more than that the 6.4 will hold up better.
