This truck will definately grow on me...but does anyone else think this motor is louder than they thought it would be? Good thing I think...I just personally think you should HEAR a diesel engine. Anyway, looks good, sounds good, can't wait to win the lottery so I can buy one in a few years. HAHH

Thats why I live my 'ol 7.3, it rattles and clangs and bangs. Sounds like a true diesel engine.:icon_ford:

What, louder than supposed to be?

Sounds like a gas truck, a diesel pick up should be louder than that.

The pilot injection system makes it run quiet, there is a vid of the 6.7 running with out it and it sounds like a 7.3 ideling. The injectors and fuel rails are of the outside like the d-max so with custom tunes and I'm sure the pilot injection system will be turned off it should sound like an old diesel. I know when I run my 585 tune it sounds like a pissed off 7.3.

It sounded a little bit like a 6.0 from what I heard. They didn't leave it running long or pop the hood. I like a nice, loud growl. Wish I'd never got rid of my 7.3.

i like the rumble of the older diesels, 7.3's, 6.0's, 12v & 24 v's. however with all the blow your doors off power the new "quiet" diesels make i think i can handle the quietness!!!!!!
