Likes And Dislikes By Owners Of A 6.4

I would like to hear some feed back from other owners and this will also help out others looking to get a new 6.4.


1) The truck should come stock with a EGT gauge
2) 6 way seats for comfort
3) Light for re-gen mode
4) Redesign for window molding and rocker style - Get sick off cleaning inside off my jambs every time it rains or snows.

Here is a few off mine - lets hear what you have to say ?????

Never thought I would admit this in public, but they need to bring back the little "hook" for the trash bag. There is no place to hang one in the new trucks. Not even a decent knob to use......

They also need to bring back the clip on the console lid. Man, do I miss that!

I agree with that and also a storage spot on the dash instead of that extra cup holder - how many drinks do you need to hold up front ??????

Those cup holers are a great upgrade from the old ones. The egt gauge is already there, just have to tap into the pcm.

my dislike would be the navigation map itself. not even close to the one I got with my Eclipse unit doesn't have even half the POI that one does. Is there an updated map with more or do I have to install the Eclipse unit?

I dont know much about the exhaust, only from looking at one at a dealer ship-F-450 extra cab but no bed so thats how i saw the exhaust. But i looked and from under the cab to the muffler there is three wires. Now i dont know if any of those are heat sensors or probs are are strickly for the regeneration mode, but i have seen them there.

Thats just my two cents on the EGT. But what whould the computer use the egt for, dose the truck defuel?
