were issues with Ford's software programs (however since worked out), not the Navstar engine
other way around. its navistars software problems.
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 ....
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.

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.
