Just because an engine has single or twin turbo's means beggar all in terms of fuel consumption.

BMW put twin turbos on thier 3liter diesel engine, and fuel economy improved.
What does that mean? Not a lot.

BTW. BMW actually poineered using the sequential turbocharging on diesels (initially developed by Mazda for its RX-7).
If you want an interesting read. Do a "google" on BMW 535d.

Not for sure if it was the NASCAR truck, but it was a racing truck, it was sitting right there with the 6.0 in it and he said it had performed well on the track.

I certainly could be wrong on this but I'm with you on the guess; I'd say its a single valve with a multi-port (4) entrance into the intake manifold.

Not from everything that I have read ... Ford did not buy the "complete" engine package ... just the hardware ... the International 6.0s with the "complete " Intenational engine package are not having the same probs as the Ford 6.0 ....

Oh no, Ford is the one that dropped the ball as far as electronics are concerned.

The faulty EGR valves and faulty EBP, ICP sensors....International's responsibility.

LCF is Low Cab Forward IIRC, if I recall correctly.....

Boxy looking delivery trucks that Ford and International along with others manufacture.

the twins are able to keep boost up thoughout the whole rpm range which makes it burn fuel more effecently. if the 6.4 is anything like the 4.5 thats in the LCF i would even think about buying one. well maybe not i love my 97. im looking at buyin a LCF for work though.

The only bad thing about twin turbos is if one goes out so does the other one. Replacing one is bad enough but two, ouch.

They have lowered compression to 17.5:1 IIRC to meet emissions and keep the head gaskets intact....

The standard Nascar engine block is 358 ci, which happens to be 6 Liters if you round up.

The Ford 6-Liter diesel is 365 ci.

Is it going to be efficient? You can bet your bottom dollar. I want to know about the EGR's as well, and if there would be a possibility to disconnect them.

I will start of by saying that I have been a Ford man all my life. I probably won't ever own anything else. But I ponder this question. Why all the changes? In the diesel department, Ford went from the 6.9 to the 7.3, then the 7.3 turbo, then the 7.3 powerstroke, to the 6.0, and now the 6.4. God knows what all chevy has been through diesel wise, dont know dont care. Now lets look at Dodge. 5.9L Turbo since like what? 1990? The only change in this diesel was 12 more valves. I like cummins, I like Ford, I hate dodge. I think Ford needs to grab ahold of cummins and allison trannys. That would be the BEST truck in the world.

I don't know why you guys bash dodge trucks, i just bought one (last march)and the quality is outstanding. no shakes, rattles or trim peices falling off. the truck has been flawless and i love the 6 speed. i do wish the cummins were louder, but what can you do. i had every intention of buying a ford, but after driving the dodge, there was know way i would get the ford. i could write a page on why i wouldn't get the ford (for my needs) but i don't want to bore you all with that.
