I'll second this.

I knew a company out of calgary that had a 6.4 long before the release, only thing is that from what guys told me it looked nothing like a 2008 superduty, the body was a 2007 style, and the engine bay was very "rough" looking, with nothing looking finished, if that makes any sense.

The only thing about the 6.7 is that it apparently needs urea, and if ford leases off some test mules, where the heck do they buy urea?

Arent Schlumberger's superduty's all 100km/h speed limited?

One guy told me they were, another said WTF told you that...

I've only see them use ford trucks.

Yeah the bright pink coolant bottle was my clue. Then the oil fill right in the middle.

The truck has been good so far, but I cant believe where the oil went
It hasnt even been smoking,

I hate to say it, but I may be returning the 6.7 and begging for my 02 7.3 back...

No joke, the newer generation of trucks are supposed to need "urea" as part of their emission BS system.

A quick internet search will show you what it is, and I believe you cant even buy it yet. It has been rumored this 6.7 scorpion will need urea.

Just about every diesel engine manufacturer has said they will be using SCR as part of the emission system come 2010 and that will require the use of DEF (Diesel Emissions Fluid). DEF is a non-toxic mixture of 67.5% demineralized water and 32.5% high grade urea.

I know DEF is currently available in the US from bulk distributors. I believe Volvo and Mack dealers across the counrty are also already (or soon will be) stocking DEF.

I hope, no I PRAY, that with the use of urea, the new 6.7 will at least flirt with 20 MPG.

The urea is used for something completely different then the DPF. The urea is used to reduce Nitrogen Oxides (maybe some other chemicals as well?). You will still have the DPF, and you will still have regens. Perhaps now since DPF technology has been out for a while, ford will be able to make adjustments to it to allow for extended time without regens to bump up mileage

Im praying with ya man. Fortunately it is looking like they may be on to something with the use of DEF...

True, but SCR will allow manufacturers to reduce the amount of exhaust gases recirculated back into the engine as well as tuning the engine for a better more efficient burn. This will reduce the ammount of particulate matter going to the DPF in turn reducing the frequency of regens. SCR may also completely eliminate the need for a active regen of the DPF and it may only require passive regens...

Ford is slowly turning die-hard diesel power truck enthusiasts into science nerds.
