Re: 2008 f350 6.4 blew the motor

a 6.7 would be cool but i imagine the tag on one of thoses would be close to 10k
if it were mine i would just drop another 6.4 in it properly maintained it will last a long time

You could do a 5.9 swap but that might be a outrageous cost for all the parts motor PCM wire harness etc. I would drop another 6.4 in or sell. My friend had 80,000 on his 6.4 blew it put a new engine in ARP studs head gaskets injectors Elite Diesel Tow Power X turbo(S) EGR Delete with waste gate AFe intercooler. Guess what it blew again. The culprit #8 injector hung open and fried #8 Cyl still runs but its running on 7 cylinders.

the 6.4 is a good engine you always hear more about the bad than the good but that goes for anything but there are things have have a run of bad luck all you can do is properly maintain and address issues when they happen the reast is out of your hands, drop another 6.4 delete everything stud it and tune it you will be very happy. #### happens hopefully your next engine will last

Ours did the same thing. Wouldn't buy another 6.4l. If the itch is there go with a CR cummins, I believe a 6.7 cummins has been done with good results. Conversion will run you 15k plus or 10k to do it yourself (approx).
