So Whos Gonna Be The Guinea Pig ?

So whos gonna stick there neck out first for the new 6.4 ? I bought a first year Saturn back in '91 with zero problems. I bought my Jan. built F-350 6.0in April of 03 with very little problems with 81,000 mi.. Would I do it again ? Probably. But for now will burn, or run the tires off this one.:Thumbup:

We cut Stroked Lightning in half with just 9.7 miles on it.

I guess we could do something with a 6.4 : : :

Even after a near flawless (yet mis-advertised by Ford) 5/03 6.0 I say no way in hell. I've read way too many (1000's and 1000's) negative message boards posts in addition to the stupid stuff Ford corporate has pulled in false 6.0 advertisements and mechanic labor hour screwings (not to mention all the gripes at the fuel island).

My next diesel this spring/summer is going to be that unproven and newly redesigned I-6 Cummins like the 10's of thousands of other Ford owners since 03. :roflmao:

As bad as that sounds a year ago I was Ford/PSD until I died (you screwed the pooch Bill Ford).:barf:

The 6.4 is DO or DIE for Ford whether you can grasp that or not.:shrug:

I'll be the pig. Shoot, it comes with a temporary warranty; until I pop the hood.

I would have no problem buying one, but only after I see what else is out there.

I would buy one, if someone held a gun to my head I'll be joining the ranks with many others I know well when it comes time to buy another, I'll go with a Cummins.
