Re: Looking to purchase a 6.4l powerstroke

If you can find a 6.4 that got the bed plate fixed, proper radiator, went thru one or five warranty overhauls and was deleted and tuned when the warranty ran out you'll have a rocket ship.

The 6.7.......... :vomit:

Not sure why you hate them so much, easier to work on, parts are a fraction of the price, the trucks have more amenities and they reliably hold the same power as a delete tuned six four.

It seems like both engines have issues, what are prices on 6.4 and 6.7 salvage 6.7 will be cheaper

I guess the bigger question is what are you going to use the truck for?

The only 6.4 I would remotely consider is one that has been deleted since near new IMO. One that has lived with the emissions equipment for a long time is likey a time bomb. However, both engines (6.4 and 6.7) have their issues. Personally I like the 6.7 better but to each their own. The 6.4 will give you gobs if power but the 6.7 will outlast the 6.4 in terms of longetivity and reliability. The transmissions are generally stronger in the 6.7 (6R140) than the 5R110 behind the 6.4 but you can build the 5R to hold plenty of power.

The truck will be used for hauling equipment occasionally, tractors, dingos, etc. The main use will be transporting cattle and my wife’s goats to and from fairs as well as be my daily driver. I may just say screw it and keep the cummins. I don’t know yet. Researching as much as possible. I do my own work so I’m not worried about labor bills. Parts being cheaper for the 6.7 is a plus but as I said previously, the 6.4 is more in my price range at this moment.

Re: Looking to purchase a 6.4l powerstroke

Seeing as six sevens can be had for 15k and under, I'm not sure why anyone would go down the heart break road of a sic four

Please show me where you have found a crew cab 4x4 without 200k for 15k and under. I haven’t had that kind of luck except for one cc flatbed that has 334k on it for $17,900.

I never said it would have 200k or under.

Re: Looking to purchase a 6.4l powerstroke

I bought a stock 2010 6.4 a few years ago with 110k on the clock. The first month I owned it I dropped the emissions equipment. Boy, what a difference! It's been 40k miles later and it still is running very very strong. My dad has a 2011 6.7 and his is always in the shop. The only major repair I've had was recently I replaced the steering box, drag link and tie rod ends. Maybe I got a good one? Idk. But so far I've been very pleased with this 6.4.
