Whats wrong with this picture

I am beginning to question the authenticity of the picture. I'm not sure thats a 6.7 rod on the left. Numbers do not look right. I could be wrong but something does not look right.

The rod that your questioning has "FoMoCo" stamped on it.

Ford has changed many things on the 6.7 since it was introduced. Heads, block, turbo, head gaskets, crank, bearings, exhaust brake, injectors, pistons and rings, oil pan ect. There are probably things I'm forgetting here but modern engines are continuous in development. They pretty much have to be to remain competitive.

I agree. My F450 was built the last week in February. It was the first job #2 truck I saw, so that was about the time of the switch over. It would be great to get a 1000 ft-lb flash update. The stock 925 is just sooo weak!

I've never heard anything about the block or cylinder heads being changed on a 6.7L from the original design in 2011.

i like the beefy rods, glad to see ford making a move. looks like they will make the block or crank the 1st weak link. Stock rods were always in the bend zone around 700 RWHP, i bet these are on par with cummins bottom end to the 1200 RWHP zone.

This was changed in the 2012 trucks then changed again and it 15 to 16 trucks. In 2015 there was a major revamp with more material added here and there to the block and heads different crank Etc

I'd have to see information supporting that. My understanding is that the only thing changed between an 11 and 12 was the quarter turn oil drain disappearing along with the plastic oil pan. I'm well aware of the power increase in 2015 - new turbo and updates to the fueling system, maybe new head gaskets and updates to the crank (crank damper was changed) but as for the actual block and heads? The coffee table books don't reveal any change to these major components.

I could be wrong, but I'd love to see some supporting documents.

I agree with you here, otherwise Ford would have a false advertisement issue.

Yep, the language says "new this year". I acquired the brochure in Dec. 2016. I believe it was printed in 2016. So if there was a change in Jan. 2016 that would make sense.

It would be nice to know what changes were made to the 6.7 it seems strange that Ford hasn't offered more specific information.

Post #46 from
rupinah which gives the Change Over dates on the new rods and also coincides with the Ford Brochure for January of 2016. I would give it a high probability rating that ALL 2017's got the new rods.

2012's got different valves as the 2 piece valves in the 2011's were breaking off and causing a catastrophic failure.
When the power bump came in 2105 the 6.7 got different main bearings, larger single turbo and manifold, exhaust brake, hpfp and injectors, heads and head gaskets, crank fillets and damper, pistons.

Just google 6.7 changes. Plenty of info around. I may be wrong about the block though but I thought it received a material update as well. Can't recall where I read that a few years back.
