re: 6.4 powerstroke
Short answer: don't

It is IMO the worst Diesel engine ever installed in a pickup truck. The 6.0 is bad but will hold up if treated and used properly. The 6.4 cant be made to hold up. It's a POS.

There's a reason that the deals on them are so good. The rest of the truck is very good and if you want a project they're a fantastic platform for it. If you want a good reliable truck to use like a normal truck, get something else.

Depending on the deal, a 5.9 swap isn't THAT expensive

This board was all about the 6.4 when it came out and was trashing the 6.0

This board is all about anything that is Ford and new.

Ford could come out with a driver seat that includes a protruding sandpaper coated steel dildo and everyone here would be bragging about how revolutionary it was.

Walk don't run from a 6.4. 7.3, 6.0 with proper additions to bulletproof it (head studs, egr delete), or the new 6.7.

Mid-1994–Mid-2003 7.3 L International - Pre emissions - Turbo with waste-gate. Pretty much bullet proof.

Mid-2003–2007 6.0 L International - first with emissions - VGT (variable geometry turbo) - Ford upped the power beyond what international designed the engine for leading to some head gasket failures, finicky injectors, bad oil cooler / egr cooler designs. (I had one, babied it and made it to 131,000 before trading on a 17.) This motor ended the relationship with Ford.

2008–2010 6.4 L International - Second with emissions, not much better with that stuff, twin turbo - lots of issues. I believe the first with the DPF. Never met anyone with one that was happy. I met way more 6.0 owners that were happy than 6.4, so that should tell you something. International's last ford engine.

2011–present 6.7 L 100% Ford Much better and seems to be the most reliable stock other than the 7.3. I believe 2011 had ceramic bearings in the turbo that were changed to steel due to issues in later years (not 100% sure what year). There were a few other changes too.

If you want a good place to read up on the issues of each www.ford-trucks.com and check out their forums. Be warned though, the info is a little skewed because who posts on a forum when their truck is perfectly fine!

Or....go get a Ram with the 6.7 and be done with it. Bullet proof.

Problem with the RAM is the truck will fall apart around the engine.
