The rad tends to develop leaks...which could cause damage to the egr, and cause other such headaches. Some people have lost engines quite early, but i dont know. Its a 50,000 dolla truck, i would keep the good ole 7.3 for when you need one bad arse truck to do the hard work.
6.4 Good-200+ hp tunes 500+ hp on just a damn chip! Lotta beef in this engine.
6.4 Bad- Nothing really bad about the engine, i think the major problems were caused by either the tuning by the dealership or the egr giving the engine a little mouth. The bad fuel milage will get better when you rip that epa bs off.
