Looking at trucks

I may possibly buy a new truck, not sure when but i am interested in the 6.4. My question is, if i was to get the truck i would get ride of all the emissions stuff and the egr, with a six speed manual tranny, what kind of miliage could i expect after a couple thousand miles?? Also, i was wondering how much power the motor stock can handle??

I've got a 6.4 F-350 dually with the 6-speed manual w/3.73 non-limited slip gears. My average highway mileage @65 mph is 17 mpg, @70 mpg it's 14-15. I've got over 22,000 miles on it so for with no problems. As long as you can keep your boost below 10 psi the mileage is pretty good.

I've been running the SCT LiveWire for several months now and it's amazing the amount of power you get from it. SCT is releasing their DPF delete tune very soon, and I'm already getting a 5" turbo back DPF & Cat delete pipe being made right now.

How do you like the six speed south tex? Almost ordered one with a 6spd just haven't seen much about them and I haven't seen one roll through our dealership yet :shrug:
