Ford needs a home run. Hoping for the best.

With so much emission equipment, it is shame that ford did not go with a I6 configeration. This engine, like 6.4, looks like a cab removel for any type major work. Is a cab removel really practical after the factory warrenty is up? I for one don't think a design is good unless it is practical.

How could it be. By the time Ford gets 10% of the problems worked out on an engine they come out with a new one. When Ford uses the same engine that is proven for more than 6 years I will buy new.

Coming from someone who doesn't own one. The 6.4 has been an excellent engine. A little thirsty for fuel but it will still beat the 5.4 gas engine. Plus it is having to get 9000# or so moving.

Better View.

I'm sure that these have been seen by now, but figured they should be in here too.

Again from Leftlane:

Ford probably felt the need to stick with the PowerStroke trend of a V8 diesel. They don't want to look like their copying Cummins, even though they probably should.

So they look like they are copying GMs diesel with the reverse flow aluminum heads?

Exhaust out the top (Reverse flow) makes better sence.

Its not a new concept, and both engines probably went into development about the same time. If Chevy did it first, they would have patented it so Ford couldn't do it. It was pre-existing design knowledge.

My response was to you saying Ford probably wanted to stick with the V8 diesel so it would not look like they were copying Cummins.

I was trying to point out that if copying is an issue for them it would'nt matter if they go six or V8.
