It now has 130k on it has been down for at least 4 months since he got it.
Tell your buddy to take his truck to MPD ( Maryland performance diesel) in Baltimore. I know their current 6.4 went for went to almost 1000 horsepower on stock bottom end and they currently hold the record for the 6.4 at over 1300 horsepower.

All trucks and motors have their issues. Some have more than others and some are more expensive to repair than others. I really like the looks of the super duty ,but I've heard mixed opions on all the powerstokes from the 6.0 on. I personally know guys that have 6.0 and 6.7 that have had really bad luck with them. I do not personally know anyone with a 6.4 though. All I know is that I would not spend my hard earned money on any powerstroke after a 7.3 . I'm not really bias when it comes to diesels ,but in this case I would stick with a duramax or a cummins especially if your dad just wants to leave it stock. Check out this guys you tube videos. He is a ford diesel mechanic and loves the 6.4 because it is job security for him. 6.4L FORD Powerstroke FAIL 1 - YouTube

This thread convinces me to not even think about buying a Ford... (besides a 7.3)

It deos make me think... Are there many trucks (6.0, 6.4's) that are for sale with the proper work done to make them more reliable? And how much over a "Stock" truck should someone expect to pay for a reliable Ford?

I know this aint PSD Forum but thought I'd ask.

My uncle's 6.0 just blew the HG's at 73,xxx miles. Turns out two injectors were also taking a shit and the FICM blew. Piece of shit is costing my family a lot of money. My truck has twice the mileage and has been tuned for a while and never had ANY major repairs needed. Their stock truck with 1/2 the miles is a bottom-less pit

it takes a good 5-7 k to make a 6.0 reliable from the very bone stock start, like I said before I have several of them on the road clocked over 300,000 miles after I worked on them with no issues, and as for the for sale trucks it depends on the area and who did the work, around here almost every 6.0 you see has at least headstuds and egr block or bulletproof cooler, combined with a custom sct tune there good runnin rigs

Yeah at least Aaron warrants all of his work for a good amount of time. The heads are under warranty. Everytime he gets on the truck it will puke coolant. I've heard good things about MD but of course RDP is right up the road and has a good name as well.

Your on a Chevy forum asking about Ford...ofcourse you'll only hear the bad news. Bad news always travels faster anyways. I know two people who have 6.4s and they've been great. If I had money and Didnt like Duramax my truck so much a 6.4 tempt me for a next choice. My only grip about it is that it has firm seats. Mine are more comfortable I think.

One of the 6.4s has 212k and is plowed with. Handles it great the other I wanna say has 80k on it neither have had anything go bad on it outside of maintaince.

Don't take the forum very seriously. Look at consumer reports. I doubt many people here have owned a 6.4 so why take there word?

And just so It's out there. I really hate Ford. But the best consumer is an open/clear-minded consumer.
