Powerstrokehelp

Take a look at the videos on the 6.0 site here. The guy does a comparison of the 6.0 and 7.3 Ford Diesels. I looked at about half of his videos and he's planning to help Powerstroke Owners keep their old trucks instead of buying the news trucks with the strict emission standards that kill milage.

Looking at Ford losing over 8 billion this quarter due to the high cost of fuel and the lower milage people are becoming aware that paying $50K or more for a truck that gets half the milage of the older truck isn't a good deal and if you're in a trucking business it could break you. For private owners it seems our only hope is to wait for reliable after-market-systems with dpf-delete where possible as well as more efficient computer controls.

The interesting thing is this guy actually seems to like Ford trucks, but sees the problem of changing government regulations at a time of huge fuel cost increases as a business opportunity for him to help current owners of older trucks keep them on the road. When I bought my 6.4 I didn't realize the milage would be so poor, so that other than trading my 6.4 for an older truck my only hope seems to be one these new after-market-systems for another $3k-$4k. What do you think?

Can you post a link? Thanks!

The NEW Scorpion is said to increase fuel by 3 mpg's. Might try waiting until the engine is available in 2010...rather than dumping 3k or 4k into your 6.4L PSD. While at it...loosing the warranty.

Just my .02...

What company is making the Scorpion?
I heard Ford was making one in house, is this it?

What is the size of the new engine?

Yes...this is the "code" name for the in-house FORD built diesel engine. It is going to be a 6.7L with a last reported of 390hp and 720 ft/lbs torque.

I WAS planning to buy an 08 6.4, but I will wait until the new 6.7 makes it to the road.

I hope there is more information on the new diesel soon.

Will the new engine be B100 friendly?

I wonder what Ford will do with the 6.7. I guess at some point the heavy duty pick-up has to be up-graded, but with all of us squealing like Ned Beatty in Deliverence, over our poor milage. It will be difficult to market a truck with an even bigger engine. Also considering that diesel will most likely be>$5/gal that will be another disincentive to buy the new pick-up.

caprang is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
There will always be a "need" for heavy trucks. Right now the market is weeding out all the people that didnt really need a truck when they bought it. Lots of folks drove trucks for the kewl factor and it will probably take a couple of years for the market to adjust but there will always be people that need these trucks for real work. Besides, the new engine is claiming an increase in MPG's. I guess time will tell how true that is.

I'd worry as it's Ford's first go compared to Navistar Intl who have been doing them for years. First yr of 6.7 could well be one to avoid.
