wow, I gotta update this thread
Just because it ain't all roses with the 6.7 and I think y'all should know about it. I originally filled the cat on my pickup at about 180 miles, it finally burned off. At roughly 1,000 miles it read as cat full again. Dealer had part on order, but recieved wrong part ( was going to replace cat, I believe) due to wrong part being put into the right box. Mistakes happen, and I waited another week for the right part. In the meantime it filled up again, power went to the seriously bad stage, and then burned off and power came back. While I was driving I watched the trip computer report "catalyst stat" fall from 100% full to 0%, then it immediately started climbing again. Dealer called and said part was in. The 'part' was an entirely new exhaust from the turbo on back. This guy is really trying to fix this problem. After installation of an entire new exhaust including cat and filters, as well as two software updates that have come out two address the problem, the POS filled up again, lost all power and left me stranded on a country road. By the way, Chrysler roadside is pretty efficient. Any how, service guy at dealer called me back, said he had been in touch with 'the engineers' and they have a number of pickups with this problem, but "don't have a clue how to fix it". Dealer and I will be discussing this conclusion tomorrow. Just thought you should know.
