The T800 might be a little overkill make sure it has an air ride 5th wheel or the pin box will come off the trailer.

He said they do these all the time and it makes the engine last longer, inceases power and eliminates the horrible "smoke" issue.

Anyone on here have any experience with this process?

Thanks

Yep, my 6.4 was insane after EGR and DPF delete. Even in tow Tune it would just roast the tires. Had soooo much power. Other problems are still around.

Oil cooler: ford gold coolant clogs the cooler. Best to flush with fleet rite system. Did it to mine and could not believe the gunk that came out. Took a couple days to complete. Iíd throw on a coolant filter to catch the gunk. I had big wads of Alge in mine. Had a CTS2 to monitor the oil vs coolant temps. Need to stay within a set amount of degrees between them.

Rocker arms. The arms do double duty. They are bridged and therefor take a lot of punishment. The worst thing part is the tips. They are a separate piece and come off. Thus they break and can be sucked in if they break down small enough. They are cheap to buy and somewhat easy to install.

Radiator: Bad Bad Bad. Plastic ends warp with flex of body and they come apart, Mishimoto makes an awesome replacement and a stronger core support brace that fixed it,

I put on new radiator pipes. Earlier builds (08) had bad o-rings. Intercooler boots blow, riffraff diesel makes great reaplcements. I put on new Intercooler tubes as cold side is smashed flat from factory.

I had a lot of fun with my 6.4 I was sad when it met its death.

Awesome, thank Fish! Too bad about your truck

The reason I am considering these upgrades are that my truck only has 70,000 km, and it is a beautiful truck. To replace it would make me out of pocket another $20-30k.

This diesel shop is so knowledgeable and focused on fixing factory issues that I am sure that they will know about the other issues.

Sweet truck! I miss mine a lot. I have a new 6.7, but donít dare delete with warranty in place. You will love it deleted and tuned.

At the very least, I strongly recommend the coolant flush and replace with long life antifreeze. There are many articles and sites showing how itís done. Search for clogged oil coolers 6.4 and youíll see pics of what Ford Gold antifreeze does to the cooler.

Report back and let me me know how you like it. Iíll Live vicariously through your truck

The best upgrade to the 6.0 or 6.4 Powerstroke is a Duramax wrapped in a GMC/Chevy or Cummins wrapped in a Ram.

Agree. 6.7 has been a big win for Ford. It was a great move for them to take their engines ďin houseĒ and build them themselves.

don't think that buying a 6.7 will solve your issues. I have a 2015 that regens all the time. and so far I've had to have the def container cleaned out because of it being 'dirty'.
just use 'manual' and run your truck once a week at 2000rpm, 3rd gear for about 20 minutes...that may help.


I will probably go back to GMC on my next truck.
